The iconic Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market, the largest in South Australia, celebrates the most wonderful time of the year and provides the ultimate destination for all your Christmas and New Year supplies, all under one roof.  

Running every Sunday throughout December from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm and located just outside the CBD at the Stirling Angas Pavilion, the market brings together the local artisans, farmers and producers with their finest creations and freshest seasonal and locally sourced produce, with approximately 100 stalls, proudly supporting local South Australian businesses. 

‘Christmas at the Farmers’ Market is a time when the community comes together to celebrate the joy of the season, share in the abundance of locally sourced produce, and create lasting memories with loved ones’, says Christine Robertson, Executive Officer of the Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market. 

The Farmers’ Market is known to have an abundant spread of produce, direct from South Australian farmers and producers, and stopping by the market will mean your table this summer season will be filled with the freshest and most flavourful ingredients available.  

The final Farmers’ Market of the year on New Year’s Eve, running from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, is a time to say farewell to 2023 and prepare you to welcome the beginning of the new year with farm fresh produce, sharing platters and all your holiday break essentials that include organic wine, beer, gin and more! 

‘Our special Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve morning markets offer a unique opportunity to embrace the festive spirit while supporting our local farmers and producers’, says Christine.  

And, if you’re still looking to get some cute gifts this festive season, why not grab a 2024 Market Membership for that special someone (or yourself!) either online or at the market?  

Not only do Market Members get 10% off all their purchases all year long—which includes everything from milk, bread, meats, dairy products, flowers, baked goods and all your beer, wine and spirits—but it also comes with exciting perks, and a Jute Farmers Shopping Bag for all your goodies.  

And, if you join or renew your market membership before December 31st, you automatically go in the draw to win one of two ‘V’ tier folding shopping carts, each valued at $365. 

Operating for over 17 years, the Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Markets have been committed to promoting eco-friendly, sustainable practices, supporting local businesses and fostering a real community spirit with its vendors of local farmers, producers, artisans and visitors alike.  

With free entry, the market sees around 3500 people attend the weekly Sunday Market, with around 3200 annual market members being a part of their ever-growing community. 

The market proudly promotes a farm-to-table experience, where customers can not only get their hands on the freshest organic produce but also connect with the farmers and makers in person—so they can get a true understanding of the story behind the products they take home. 

‘We invite everyone to join us for a month of merry festivities, community camaraderie, and the finest farm-fresh offerings’, says Christine.  

By shopping at the Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Markets, you’re directly contributing to the livelihoods of these hardworking individuals, ensuring that quality South Australian products and small businesses continue to thrive.
