If you're visiting the Barossa Valley and after the ability to purchase a dizzying array of fresh, high quality local produce - all of which comes with a blend of delicious aromas and friendly grins - be sure to pay a visit to the Barossa Farmers Market which takes place every Saturday. Having been in operation for nearly 15 years, the Barossa Farmers Market has long been a favourite of locals to purchase their fresh fruit and veg, however the market offers much more than that; it's a concentrated mixture of foodstuffs of all kinds ranging from piping hot pastries, to delicious coffee, to fresh cuts of meat and poultry, to its famously refreshing icecream that makes for a tasty way to cool down on hot days. There's a reason the Barossa Farmers Market is so popular - you simply won't find this blend of both quality and variety in supermarkets, and the range of ingredients are sold by enthusiastic stall runners who are always friendly, upbeat, and willing to give both advice and cooking tips. The markets make for an excellent spot for a fresh and reasonably-priced breakfast for those visiting the Barossa, and getting there early comes highly recommended as, due to their popularity, the markets are almost eternally busy. Arriving as early as possible allows both avoiding the crowds and for getting the first choice of goods on offer, and while there's plenty of parking available getting a spot can still be tight - so be prepared to walk a little bit. Open each Saturday from 7am to 11:30am, the Barossa Farmers Market are a must-visit for foodies in the region, and are also undercover so that rain need not deter you from visiting.
