Perth City Farm is a non-profit functioning farm, community space, environmental centre and café located in East Perth next to the Claisebrook train station. Founded in 1994 on the site of a former scrap metal yard and battery recycling facility, Perth City Farm has become a vibrant green space that has become popular with people who work or live close to the CBD.
Perth City Farm regularly hosts a number of events, activities and workshops. One of their most popular is their weekly farmer's market which is held once a week on a Saturday. The farmer's market is held during the summer (from 7.30am to 11.30am) and in the winter (from 8am to 12pm noon). The purpose of the market is to promote organic, biodynamic, and ethical and sustainable produce. The market is held in the city farm courtyard close to the café and plant nursery and children's play area.
Perth City Farm has a stall at the market each week which is always staffed by volunteers and stocked with an array of fresh produce and organic products. The market is always a busy, bustling place each week with numerous other vendors joining in and setting up stalls to sell a range of items.
Some of the things on sale include: locally sourced fresh fruit and vegetables that are organic, biodynamic, ethical and spray-free. A selection of dairy products, meats, free-range eggs, and olive oils that are organic and biodynamic. Some of the best local and unrefined honey, a range of dry goods and health foods that are certified organic, homemade soaps and lotions, eco-friendly beauty products, environmentally sensitive household products and LOADS of great gift ideas.
