Owner description: The Barossa Farmers Market: real food from the homes and farms of the Barossa Valley. We are a food-only traditional farmers market which operates every Saturday morning from 7.30am - 11.30am in the undercover Vintners Sheds, Angaston. Our producers sell a beautiful array of fresh fruit and vegetables (many of them organic), ethically raised meats, smallgoods, baked goods, fresh seafood, olive oils, vin cotto, confectionery, jams and preserves, teas and locally roasted coffee. We also have a breakfast bar, selling fresh egg and bacon rolls, fresh coffee, children meals, vegetarian and vegan options. Stock up on your fresh produce, buy a sweet treat and enjoy a delicious breakfast and coffee with friends. We look forward to showing you the best of the Barossa's food scene soon,

“Real, yummy, locally made food, sold by the makers”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

It's a Farmers' Market. It doesn't sell gee gaws and knick knacks. It is all under cover under one roof. It sells a little fresh produce, breads, biscuits, cheeses, smallgoods, smoked fish, jams and relishes, olive oil, olives, pies, quiches and probably several similar things I've forgotten. It isn't large so there is only one or occasionally two stalls that sell the same things. This doesn't matter because it is all high quality; I haven't bought a single thing there I didn't enjoy greatly. The stalls are staffed by the people who make the produce.

It also has a place to buy and eat breakfast and take away prepared salads of many sorts.

It is an ideal place to buy preparation for a picnic lunch, or if you are staying in accommodation without a restaurant, or don't want to go to one.

“Foodie heaven”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Local produce and in the Barossa that means top quality, sophisticated, well rounded background knowledge, the staples and the unusual. If you're staying with friends or have a house go to the Saturday markets 7.30-11.30am stock up and cook for the week. Don't forget, treat yourself to a few meals out - the restaurants are also fabulous.

“Busy busy!”
Reviewed April 16, 2012 via mobile

It was extremely busy here over the Easter weekend. Lots of interesting things to see but no space for all the people to move freely around.

“Surprising variety”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

The locals are a busy lot around the Barossa Valley! The Farmers Market displayed numerous cheeses, vegetables, meats and sweet treats. There were plenty of tastings which is always a good sign. Where do they find the time?
