Hey Adelaidians, heres the site for the barossa market, check out the stallholders directory, lots of stuff. Can't wait to check it out!!!
Barossa Farmers Market
how many south aussies are on this site?
i am an original one but pure wa now
No where near enough!!!
You know this doesn't just apply to SA, I hope people will post info on farmers markets for every state (and territory :p)!!!
We went to the willunga farmers market this morning: farmersmarkets-oz.com/market.asp?mktname=willunga
It was really good, I bought a yummy looking wood fired, hand made organic sour dough, looks good!
Byron Bay Farmers Market - Butler Street Reserve Every Thursday 8am - 11am
Has wonderful produce. Organic Turey, Beef, Lamb, Pork,Smoked trout, Chooks, eggs an what ever veg and fruit are in season. Fresh roasted coffee (you can also buy a great cup of coffe for a pick me up to have with one of the decadent cakes you can buy).
Great buz but get there early about 7.30 am
Pitty there are not othe folk admitting to living in this area or we could meet there for coffee!!!Bron Doingit
Now to maintain.....hard work!
To help get others interested started, heres a link that has some for each state. I don't know how thorough their directory is, I know they only have a handful of South Australian ones so keep in mind there's probably plenty more out there which you might find out about from other ones you go to.
Anyway if you go to any let me know how it went:
The new market at the Adelaide showgrounds started yesterday... did anyone go?
I would have loved to have gone but couldn't make it should be able to make it in a couple of weeks.
Have a look at the stall holders list, it is huge:
I'd be interested to see what their pricing is like, when I went to the one in Willunga I found it good but way over priced. Even paris creek who I really like seemed to have hiked their prices way up (I bought a block of butter there (straight from the source) for alot more then I'd buy the same butter for in an organic shop which I found dissapointing. Another example is sour dough bread, they charge you around $6 for a small loaf (it is nice) yet at Maccasfield I can buy a big loaf for $3.70 and the lady is the nicest around!
By the looks of that list it looks like they have a big range of meat, I am really interested in what meat was there and the pricing so if anyone was there let me know how it was!!!
Going to be heading to the new market tommorrow morning, hopefully its good. Lots of stalls so I guess it all depends on the pricing doesn't it!
Bah lost my post using the quick reply so will try again
We went to the market at the Adelaide showgrounds this morning. I am not sure yet whether I like it or not.
There was alot there which is good but it was very busy and too hard to see what was there. It didn't look like a lot was organic but it was hard to see, I don't think any of the meat was, the barossa free range chickens were just cornfed chickens. There was a nice herb stall there where you can buy big bunch of herbs for $2 and I think they were organic but even that stall was hard to get to. I did buy this nice mallee honey that is cold extracted to retain the enzymes, minerals and vitamins for my meusli, the lady gave me a taste and it was really nice tasting.
It was really hard for us to get around with Maya in the pram, just too busy and it was ticking her off, we couldn't let her loose because it was not safe with all those people.
I don't know if the stalls were alot more expensive to setup there or if it was because of the 10% off for members or the fact that a lot more people with lots of money to spend (whom it does seem to cater for) will be there but I noticed the ones I knew from the country hiked their prices up.
I did have this barbequed bockwurst sausage with cabernet sauce and it was sooo nice.
Oh and there was this stand there for lime stone coast lamb where you can order whole or half sheep for $10 a kg so I am going to check them out, might be a better alternative then supermarket lamb as I can't afford organic lamb. They have their own website L ime Stone Coast Lamb
They say they have strict guidelines on no chemical residue, no antibiotics etc and each pack comes with a code to show which farm it came from and when it was packed etc
Oh and apparently that first weekend a couple of weeks ago they had 5000 people show up!You don't stop laughing because you grow old,
You grow old because you stop laughing.
