The Adelaide Farmers’ Market, Showground is the largest farmers’ market in South Australia. Established in October 2006, the not-for-profit organisation supports small family farms, agricultural diversity and fresh, regional and seasonal choices for consumers. The Farmers' Market attracts around 6,000 locals and tourists every Sunday. It is a vibrant place where farmers and producers representing every region of the state bring seasonal produce to sell direct to the public in inner-city Adelaide.
The Market inspires consumers to consider where their food comes from and how it is produced. Producers also maximise their profit margins by selling direct to the public and receive instant feedback from customers about product quality and preferences.
Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market has been named the nation’s best farmers’ market, according to the Australian Traveller magazine.
