Barossa Farmers Market

Rated by 101 voters :

There's nothing like a Farmers Market to make you appreciate good, homegrown produce. The Barossa Farmers Market is held every Saturday morning from 7.30am-11.30am in the Vintners Sheds near Angaston. You can get a "real farm breakfast" with just-collected free range eggs, amazing bacon and a latte, or fresh OJ, then wander the stalls and pick up handmade confectionery, chutneys, game meat and so much more. Yum.

The Cherry Trail

Rated by 67 voters :

Lovers rejoice! Follow the cherry trail - a map of all of the state's cherry growers, created to warmly invite you to pick your own cherries at one - or all - of the orchards.

Of course, many of these orchards grow more than just cherries. You may also find figs, raspberries, apples, plums, apricots and all sorts of jams and preserves while you're there. Frolick through the trail picking ripe fruits and then retire back to your abode to bake pies and cakes together.
