City Farm

City Farm is being created on a half hectare site in Sydney Park, St Peters.

The farm will be a place for food production, farmers markets, community participation, education, innovation and collaboration.

A pop-up farmers’ market is being held as a trial on Friday 22 and 29 January and Friday 5 February 2016.

A regular Sydney City Farm weekly farmers’ market is planned to start later in 2016. This market is an important part of the City Farm model. The farm will be a place for food production, community participation, education, innovation and collaboration.

We want to make sure that our farmers’ market meets the needs of the community in our timing, location, and product mix. Take our markets survey and give your feedback by Thursday 25 February 2015.

  • Farmers' market survey results

    Thank you to the 195 people who recently completed the City Farm farmers’ market survey. You told us that more than half of you regularly attend markets with top reasons being to purchase fresh seasonal food, support local food producers and build community.

    In response to your feedback, we’re planning a weekly market with fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs, bread and treats to eat at the market. Most of these will be locally grown or produced. We are also exploring opportunities to have live music, displays and demonstrations.

    We are reviewing the timing and location for the farmers’ market, accounting for other local growers markets, parking, use of space in Sydney Park, and availability of stallholders.

  • Education program survey - what you told us

    about 1 year ago

    Thank you to the 210 people who completed the recent City Farm education program survey and for all your suggestions. We discovered most of you are new and intermediate gardeners who spend an hour a week in the garden, mostly at home and using pots. You'd like to attend education programs to learn new skills to use at home and to help out in the City Farm.

    You especially want to learn about herb and vegie growing, organic gardening and green living.

    In response to your feedback, we'll be planning our first education programs to be short, and held on weekends and weekday evenings. We'll include hands-on experiences and the cost will be in line with what you indicated as fair value.


    We're always open to ideas for new programs and topics.
