The people of Yogyakarta City have been carrying out urban farming activities for the last decades to take advantage of their home garden. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, their level of livelihood has been declining due to a decrease in their income level. The income decrease of the urban people who carry out urban farming can be caused by vulnerability and demographic factors. The research was conducted in Kraton and Wirobrajan Sub-districts from June to July 2020 through questionnaires filled by 65 respondents. This study aims to: estimate the current household income of urban people who carryout urban farming; determine the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the household income of urban people who carry out urban farming; analyze the effect of vulnerability and demographic factors on the householdincome decrease of urban peoplecarrying out urban farmingduring the COVID-19 pandemic. Wilcoxon test and multiple linear regression method are used in this study. The results indicate that the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly caused a decrease in household income for urban people carrying out urban farming. Women’s main income earner and the exposure index individually have positive effects on the household income decreaseof these urban people.
