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 50 stallholders offering a cornucopia of fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables, freshly baked artisan breads and sweet treats, ethical meats, certified free-range eggs, sauces, condiments, olive oils, milk and cream, teas, and a whole raft more. Many stallholders produce chemical free or organic produce, including a variety of gluten, nut and dairy free products.
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 Barossa Farmers Market Blend coffee to get your morning off to a great start.
