Useful info for your visit

COVID-19

The Willunga Farmers Market has adapted to COVID-19 with a number of changes to create a safe and comfortable shopping environment for our community.  We are in regular contact with State Government, the City of Onkaparinga and SAPOL.  The market currently looks very different with all fresh fruit and vegetable stalls located across the road at Willunga Recreation Park.  Bread, eggs, meat, dairy and other value added products such as honey and olive oil can be found in Town Square.  COVIDSAfe check in points are located at the Market entry points along with hand sanitizer for your use on arrival (and exit if you wish).  Manual COVIDSAfe check-in is available at the Information Stall in Town Square.

Thank you to our stallholders, shoppers and volunteers for their support during this time. 

Market Map

Whilst from time to time stall holders move location, our market maps will assist you to navigate the Market, find your favourite stalls and visit new ones.  Please do not hesitate to ask at the Information Stall if you are looking for a particular product or stall.  Please visit our weekly ins and outs post for this weeks map 

Parking

Willunga has many free street parking spaces. The Alma Hotel has a Lions-run-gold-coin donation car park on the pub grounds. On days when no sporting events are being played there is often opportunity to park in the recreation ground opposite the Town Square (gold coin donation to Willunga Rec Park Redevelopment fund).
