Who knew that red dirt and good coffee was a combination?
Back in July 2021, I reported on The Farm at 625 Main Road, Wellington Point, a new Market Hall selling fresh fruit and vegetables on the property of one of the last operational farms in the area. From the 1920s until the 1970s, the Redlands district to the southeast of Brisbane City was known as the Salad Bowl because the area with its rich red soils had many farms where people could buy fresh produce and flowers straight from the farmer.

COVID-19 played havoc with many of the exciting plans for The Farm, though in recent months The Farm Cafe opened with much success from the locals. Situated at the back of the Market Hall, the casual dining area overlooks the agricultural land in all its changing glory - one-month red soil, next month green shoots, followed by sprouting vegetables the next.



The cafe has all the usual sweet treats and serves a good coffee. Many locals doing their weekly vege shop even treat themselves to takeaway coffee on their way out. It is very much a relaxed environment and proving a popular meet-up spot for friends and family.



The Farm Cafe is open during the following hours :

Friday. 7am - 6pm
Saturday. 7am - 5pm
Sunday. 7am - 4pm
Monday. 7am - 6pm
Tuesday. 7am - 6pm
Wednesday. 7am - 6pm



In recent weeks The Farmhouse has opened for business in the same building, serving meals from breakfast and across the day until evening. That's on my 'to do list'. Plans for a fromagerie in the Market Hall are also coming to fruition.

Don't you love it when a plan comes together?
