Over recent decades there has been a growing awareness in Australia about the importance of fresh organic food for our health and wellbeing, and here in Perth there are an ever-increasing number of retailers popping up, specialising in organically-grown produce, dry goods and personal care products.

Situated approximately one-and-a-half kilometres from the CBD, Perth City Farm has been one of the forerunners of Western Australia's organic revolution since its humble beginnings in 1994. While the farm's organic gardens and cafe are open throughout the week, every Saturday morning the farm hosts the City Farm Markets, a small but vibrant marketplace where farm-fresh organic fruits and vegetables, organic personal care products and various other earth-friendly items can be purchased, in many cases, direct from the growers and producers.

One of the few places in inner-city Perth where fresh organic produce is available, it's easily accessible, not only by car but also by bike and public transport. Claisebrook train station is just a minute's walk away, while the free Yellow Cat bus stops right in front of the farm. If you choose to drive, plenty of free parking is available nearby.

Although the City Farm Markets are relatively small in size, the quality of fresh produce as well as the other items for sale, is high. The fruit and vegetable vendors are from local organic farms, while the Farm Gate stall sells seasonal produce that has been grown in City Farm's own market gardens, as well as other organically-produced items and even organically germinated seedlings.

Other stalls sell a variety of other goods such as organic skin care, earth-friendly products for the home, aromatherapy oils, handicrafts, fashion, jewellery and healthy fast food. If you're feeling a bit stressed, it's even possible to get a relaxing aromatherapy massage.

One of the regulars at the City Farm Markets is the locally-made cosmetic range, Peaches and Clean. Based in Fremantle, the company makes and sells gorgeous natural products including bar soaps, liquid soaps, body scrubs, body oils, pillow sprays, goats milk baths, perfume oils and even a beard oil for the blokes. Apart from their goats milk range, everything else is vegan. Suitable for sensitive skin, Peaches and Clean products contain no parabens, palm oil or sodium laurel sulphate. In addition, they're not tested on animals.

In conclusion, Perth City Farm Market is a great alternative to the average everyday suburban shopping experience, and a much healthier one. Offering the rare opportunity to purchase local freshly-grown organic fruit and vegetables straight from the growers, it's easy to get to, the vibe is friendly and relaxed, and many shoppers enjoy visiting the on-site cafe, either before or after they buy their groceries. A stroll through the market gardens is also a great way to end your visit, and may inspire you to learn more about organic growing and to cultivate your own home vegetable patch.

Perth City Farm Markets are situated at 1 City Farm Place in East Perth. They're open every Saturday morning, from 8.00am until 12.00 noon.
