"farm fresh & organic seasonal fruit, vegetables, seedlings, herbs, juices, breads, olive oil, free range eggs, meat & chooks, smoked fish, home made condiments, flowers, artisan cheeses & much more...".
The market was originally conceived to raise funds in order to save the non-profit farm from the developers. The $2 entry fee (children are free) still goes toward upkeep and maintenance. Read all about the history of the farm here.
If you have children the farm itself makes for a great day out where you can:
"milk the cow at 10am and 4pm, bottle feed young lambs (seasonal), wander around, feed the animals, help with farm chores, go into the paddocks with the sheep and goats, cuddle a guinea pig, waddle with the ducks, feed the chooks, look for eggs or just sit and unwind under a shady tree or on the banks of the Yarra river."
Even if you don't have kids, it's a lovely place to wander around after you've had brunch at the market.
If you go on a Saturday for the market you can also get into the farm for just $2 per adult, instead of the usual $8, plus $4 per child. Bargain!
Car parking is available for $2 on market day, and $4 otherwise. Here is a guide for getting to the farm by bus or train.
