People live where culture thrives. Fairfield has always been a great location; I saw the opportunity to bring modern food dishes and good coffee into the community. As our business grows, we continue to welcome more young professionals and new families into the area. They find their home here. We love Fairfield and the locals do too.
I loved growing up in Fairfield. I could walk to primary school and caught the train with friends to high school. My friends lived locally, I always felt safe and I was close to the city to get out and about on weekends. After travelling overseas for my career, I’ve returned to Melbourne to be close to family and buy my first home. I’m currently renting in Fairfield and hope to stay. The balance of green and inner city living is exactly what I need. As I’ve grown up, Fairfield has too. Its best features are no longer just proximity to the city and the Yarra River, but great coffee, good people and things to do too.
We bought in Fairfield because it was close to the city and had great open spaces, parks and walking spots. The shops are close with access to all amenities, as are public and private schools. Fairfield has always had a really good community with a diversity of age groups, friendly people and socio economics. In the last few years Fairfield has developed into a real café culture. We don’t want to ever leave.
Fairfield has great public transport, good cafés, it’s friendly, there are lots of parks and it’s close to the Yarra and the city. We bought in 2009 and renovated two years ago. This is where we want to live and raise our family.
I grew up in Albert Park and opened my first restaurant there. Just under a year ago I bought Organic Gertrude, now Harvest Foodstore and my family and I relocated to Fairfield. We love it here. Everyone is very community based and environmentally conscious, which our business thrives on. My daughters attend Santa Maria College and as a family we have made some wonderful connections both professionally and personally.
