Farmers Markets of the Barossa region
BAROSSA FARMERS MARKET
At the Barossa Farmers Market you’ll find real food from the homes and farms of the Barossa. Supporting the local agricultural community since 2002, this is a truly authentic Farmers Market boasting more than 40 stallholders offering an array of fresh, seasonal produce including fruit and vegetables, freshly baked artisan breads and sweet treats, ethical meats, free-range eggs, sauces, condiments, olive oils, nuts, milk and cream, and a whole raft more. Many stallholders produce chemical free or organic produce, including a wide range of gluten, nut and dairy free produce.
The information booth is run by friendly, local volunteers who can answer your questions about both the market and the Barossa region. They will also lend you a courtesy trolley for shopping if your hands and arms are full.
And if it’s breakfast you’re after, you’ve come to the right place. The Breakfast Bar serves the very best produce from a range of Market stallholders so you’re enjoying the freshest and tastiest ingredients the Market has to offer. Try the famous Market Burger with a locally roasted fair trade and certified organic coffee to get your morning off to a great start.
Open: Each Saturday morning from 7.30am to 11.30am
Where: Vintners Sheds, corner of Nuriootpa and Light Pass Roads, Angaston, South Australia

MOUNT PLEASANT FARMERS MARKET
The Mount Pleasant Farmers Market is an authentic food experience run directly by the growers and producers. Stallholders are many and varied, with some 30-40 each market day offering essentials such as fruit and vegetables, milk, cheese, eggs, honey, olive oil, meat and seafood, bread and baked goods, jams, preserves, and wine.
While ticking off your shopping list, build your knowledge through the regular guest speakers or take in a cooking demonstration. The Kennedy catering shed stall’s hearty and healthy Farmers Market breakfast menu has become a local institution. And for those whose weekend simply must include four-legged friends, there is the very popular dog minding service.
Open: Each Saturday from 8am to 12noon
Where: Mount Pleasant Showground, only a 40 minute drive from Adelaide nestled on the outskirts of the Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills.
