We woke up early on Saturday to have breakfast and then visit the Barossa Farmer Markets. It is located in Vintners Sheds, next to Vintner's Bar and Grill. It is not a big market, but it's a place to meet and also buy weekly supplies of fruit, vegies, meats, dairy products, oil, and much more. It seems like a popular gathering place for locals where people catch up with each other, and have a cup of coffee with a pastry or two or maybe cupcakes. All the stalls offer a free tasting which was great for us. Our only regret was having breakfast before we went to the markets. There was this stall selling double smoked Schulz bacon and egg rolls and the smell from that stall was heavenly. My favourite stalls were the Careme which sells French pastries and other yummilicious baked goods and sausages from Barossa Farm Produce, which is partly owned by Saskia Beer (Maggie Beer's daughter). The chicken sausages were so good, I had to go back for a second piece. It was pure chicken meat with herbs, there were no extra fillers at all and the best thing preservative free.
The Barossa Farmers Market is permanently located in Vintners Sheds, this means you can gather your weekly supplies of fruit, vegies and much more in comfort come rain, hail or shine.
Careme Pastry is a husband and wife operation specialising in French Pastries and ready to roll pastry. The pastries were absolutely beautifully crafted and delicious. We bought a lemon meringue tart and a smoked salmon thyme tart. Hmmm....delicious.
There were two stalls selling beautifully decorated cupcakes. The lady at the Coveiter Cupcakes stall (who baked and sold the animal cupcakes) is a lovely Australian lady who was born in Singapore. Co-incidentally, we share the same first name.
