McKeon Street Plaza

See you at McKeon St Plaza

Randwick Council will create a new, temporary public plaza on McKeon Street at Maroubra Beach.

This is a temporary project for a period of 6 months which commenced on the 8th of October 2022.

The new space has been created by closing McKeon Street to traffic between Marine Parade and Fenton Avenue for a six-month trial period to provide more space for people.

"Farmer & Son" Markets

Bringing fresh produce to McKeon Street Plaza, Farmer & Son is family owned and operated by the Duffell family, who have been farming in the Riverina since 1920. James Duffell has been selling his family’s produce at Farmers’ Markets in Sydney since 2015 and has since expanded the business to include wholesaling to some of Sydney’s best restaurants, as well as retail home-delivery services and more. Farmer & Son now sells not just their own peaches, apricots, oranges, grapes and sugar plums from their own orchards, but also fresh produce from other farms across NSW and are proud to support local Australian farmers and their families.

  • Sunday 15, 22, 29 January 2023
