How to Become a Stallholder
We are always happy to welcome new stallholders to the Barossa Farmers Market. Our purpose is to provide a direct route to market for farmers and food producers and to strengthen the community connection to the local food chain.
As we are an authentic farmers market, it does mean that there is a selection criteria that needs to be met in order for you to become a stallholder.
We support more than 50 stallholders who bring a diverse range of seasonal, fresh, homegrown, and homemade produce.
The Barossa Farmers Market is a food and beverage only market, with a few exceptions.
You need to be based in South Australia and grow or make the food within the state. Priority will be given to applicants based in the Barossa area.
You need to have grown, produced, reared, created, baked or preserved the product you are selling.
You are required to show the provenance of your product. We will need to visit the property where you make, produce or rear your product and what ingredients you include in the items you wish to sell.
Stalls must be represented by you the producer and/or a representative who has a detailed knowledge of how the product was created and the steps involved in order to bring the product to market.
As the market promotes good environmental practices and sustainable agriculture, we will give priority to biodynamic, organic and minimal spray use.
Sustainability is important to us, so compostable or recyclable packaging is to be used where possible.
