Saturdays got even better with the launch of Greenfield Development Corporation’s newest charm, The Urban Farm, bringing the metro an authentic farm-to-table experience of fresh produce along with ready-to-consume products and household items!
Located at the Greenfield District Central Park, you don’t have to go far to get fresh, healthy and organic food. With a variety of choices like gourmet coffee, bread, organic produce, jams, jellies, cured meat, cheese, olive oils, spices, pies, pastries, muffins, mushroom chips, honey, truffle, and even poultry, seafood, meat and rice, Urban Farm provides you anything you need. They also have an outdoor dining area perfect for family and friends who want to slow down, eat, bond, and enjoy basking in the morning sun.
Open on Saturdays from 6 am to 12 noon, the weekend morning market also provides household items such as plants, handcrafted goods, and wooden pieces, guaranteeing that there is a diversity of goods to choose from. For our four-legged friends, Urban Farm also offers gourmet pet food and merchandise.
If that’s not enough to convince you, one of the things that set Urban Farm apart from other weekend markets is its central location, made accessible for people from the North and South by major transportation routes and options as it is located along EDSA corner Shaw Boulevard.

“Urban Farm is not just another weekend market. With its vast array of curated selections, it ensures consumers a premium shopping experience. It is brought to the center of the metro to encourage people to live a healthier lifestyle. With its carefully selected tenants, Urban Farm is also committed to helping local and small businesses to thrive. It is also set in finding ways to make the weekend shopping experience plastic-free and zero-waste. Though not there yet due to a lot of challenges, Urban Farm’s sustainable journey has started and the team behind it is coming up with different ways to cut down on waste and plastic usage,” shared Michael Andan, Greenfield Development Corporation’s Head of Marketing Communications.
