Market Update – 1 May 2021

Market Update – 1 May 2021

We look forward to welcoming you to the Willunga Farmers Market this Saturday!

Please note due to community sport and COVID-Safe obligations of the Willunga Football Club, there will be no crossover access between the Football / Netball and Willunga Farmers Market. Entry to the Willunga Farmers Market section of Rec Park will be via Main Road only. Entry to the football / netball will be via Railway Terrace only. We apologise for any inconvenience and ask that you respect the direction of staff and volunteers on the day.

INs & OUTs for 1 May are as follows;

In: Barmera Vineyard Veggies, Hens in the Meadow, John Edmeades, Little Acre Foods, Longline Wines, The Culturehood, 81 Acres, Hillside Herbs & Succulents, Milkless Cheese, Romley Estate and Willunga Gelato

Out: Alnda Farms, Little Forest Farm, Second Valley Cheese, Springs Road Wines & The Wild Apple

A big welcome to Alison & David from Hens in the Meadow – new fortnightly egg trader at WFM, located in Town Square (northern end).

On Saturday, 8th May you’ll find us in a new location at the Willunga High School – just 1km north of the current Town Square location on Main Road. This is due to the Quarry Market and Community Sport utilizing Willunga Rec Park on this day.

There is on-site parking (including accessible parking) and street parking available. Gold coin donation to the Willunga Bowling Club for on-site parking.

Given any operational move of the Market is reasonably complex, we have made a decision to remain at the High School site on Saturday, 15 May. 

Over the past 13 months many of our regular shoppers and visitors have missed the opportunity to socialize at the Market with limited seating available due to the COVID-19 restrictions.  Whilst we have gradually been able to reinstate some seating, it has not been practical for us to return to the pre COVID-19 layout.

The Market Management team are currently examining all possible layouts for a return to Town Square sometime in the future. In the interests of the Market, the relocation to Town Square will not be rushed. Therefore, the opportunity for us to all enjoy the Market in a single site at the High School, with ample room for social connection for not one but two weeks is a sensible one.

Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the Farmers Market office on 8556 4297.  Our website and facebook page will also have regular updates and information for the Community.

See you at the Market and thank you for your ongoing support.
