What makes shopping at the Barossa Farmers Market different than a supermarket?
We offer a different experience and mulitple benefits such as:
– the stallholders receive a retail price rather than a wholesale price.
– Shoppers can build relationships with the growers, and can be advised on how to select, store, and cook what they grow.
You also have the availability to taste what is produced, so that you can purchase at peak ripeness. The produce you are able to purchase from the Market is often picked the day before, so that one has access to the foods at their freshest.
We offer a community experience, where you can meet friends and family, enjoy a chat over breakfast, and where more dollars will stay within the community.
By shopping at the Barossa Farmers Market, you can lower your carbon footprint. Purchasing produce from local growers reduces the number of miles that food has to travel before it reaches your table.
