Real food from the homes and farms of the Barossa: a 'food only' market with food associated with the heritage and traditions of the region. Great stuff, and a must visit when in the Barossa.
Food Barossa is a regional food brand that has been developed by a group of enthusiastic food producers located in the Barossa region of South Australia.
The Barossa is famous for its wines of premium quality, and it is also known for equally fine food that is produced in the region.
Barossa food has a unique cultural history. German speaking settlers who left a dismal life in central Eastern Europe from 1839 onwards, moved to the free colony of South Australia and then the Barossa where they became successful farmers and food producers.
Many families farm the same land today. Traditional recipes and family methods are still used to create superb breads, smoked meats, condiments and so much more. Today these traditions are blended with contemporary approaches to food making the Barossa a gourmet delight!
Why is Food Barossa Unique?
Unlike many regional brands Food Barossa is truly unique in that it is not based on geographical boundaries and food safety requirements alone. The local producers have joined together and developed special points of difference for specific product groups that identify common methods and traditions that underpin their food.
Companies branded "Food Barossa" can offer you the following:
Their products are grown, produced or processed in the Barossa region.
They have a HACCP plan or other food safety accreditation.
They comply with federal, state & local food legislation.
Owners are all personally involved with making their goods.
The Barossa Farmers Market is held Every Saturday morning from 7:30am to 11:30am at the Vintners Sheds, which are located at Vintners Restaurant, Corners of Nuriootpa/Angaston Rd & Stockwell Rd, Angaston.
Hints for shopping at the Barossa Farmers Market Get there early. "The early bird gets the worm", the freshest salad greens, the best cuts of meat.... Ask questions! There are no resellers - the people selling the food have grown / made the food. As the food is grown locally, plan your shopping list around what is in season. Bring your own bags, there will be cloth ones for sale but the market is a minimal plastic zone.
