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.
