The Farmers’ Market is a place for farmers and producers to sell their food direct to the local community. Our first priority is to provide space for local farmers to sell products from their own farms. Additional space is provided for local food artisans. We work towards a market mix of 70% primary produce to 30% value-added products.
Primary produce is an agricultural product in its natural and raw state. For example vegetables, fruit, meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, eggs, honey, nuts, grains and pulses, herbs, cut flowers, and food plants.
Value-added products use one or more primary products to make a finished product. At least 60% (of finished weight) must come from ingredients that have been grown in South Australian. The remaining 40% must be Australian ingredients. The value adder is responsible for, exercises control over and participates in the manufacture of the product i.e. baked goods, pasta, preserves, ready meals and pastries.
In line with the Market Rules & Responsibilities, the following are not allowed at the Market:
Limited opportunities exist for catering sites. Shared stalls are not common market practice and will only be permitted in rare circumstances. Requests must be made in writing for the consideration of the ASFM Committee.
