Community Breakfast Bar

The Barossa Farmers Market Breakfast is back for good!

The new Breakfast Bar will be serving up delicious breakfast rolls, cooked by local community groups who are volunteering their time to cook your breakfast.

Each week, community groups will create their own version of our iconic breakfast roll, featuring bacon, bread rolls, and eggs but ‘pimped their style’, using only market produce!

In return for cooking breakfast, they will use the proceeds to help grow and improve their community group. So far funds have been used to buy new camping equipment, safety kit for young cricketers and to support Foundation Barossa.

So make a date with your friends and fam, and meet up at the market for breakfast – we can’t wait to welcome you!

Date: from Saturday 1 July 2022, 8.30-10.30am
Where: At the Barossa Farmers Market Shed
