Market Map

Whilst from time to time stallholders move location, our Market Map 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.

Parking

Willunga has many free street parking spaces. On most market dates 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 an opportunity to park in the recreation ground opposite the Town Square (gold coin donation to Willunga Rec Park Redevelopment fund).

Dogs at the Market

Willunga Farmers Market has investigated the presence of dogs at the Market from a food standards perspective, health and safety, and liability issue. In conclusion, we are pleased to welcome you and your dog to the Market and hope you have an enjoyable experience while shopping here.

To help others enjoy their experience please:

  • keep your dog on its lead and under your control at all times
  • clean up any dog feces left by your dog
  • do not allow your dog to enter into a stall space as this is a food market
  • be especially careful around young children eating food
  • Note that under the Cat and Dog Act you are responsible and personally liable for your dog’s actions in a public space.

ATMs

There is an ATM in the heart of the market, located on the steps to the Willunga Digital Hub at the St Peter’s Tce entrance. There is also an ANZ ATM machine in Willunga High St (outside of The General Store) and a privately operated machine in the Alma Hotel.

EFTPOS facilities

A growing number of our stallholders (including the WFM Information Stall) offer EFTPOS / electronic payment facilities at their stall.

Extreme Weather

The Willunga Farmers Market will open every Saturday unless advised by the CFS or SES that a catastrophic weather event will negatively impact on our ability to trade safely.

Market management may close the market early (not before 11 am) in the event of extreme weather conditions (eg if the weather forecast for Noarlunga is over 38C.) In the event of early closure, patrons will be notified via the WFM website and social media.

When you shop at the market you support small family farms, agricultural diversity and fresh, seasonal food. Entry is FREE with an average of 90 stalls each week, changing with the seasons and around 6,000 visitors every Sunday

Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market is open 9am – 1pm every Sunday on Leader St, Wayville. Market facilities include indoor and outdoor stalls, shelter, parking, bike racks, toilets and ATMs. 

The stalls are run and manned by the people who grow the food, a great chance to talk to local farmers about the food we grow in South Australia, enjoy breakfast, lunch or a really good cup of coffee.
