Markets are HOT in Adelaide and practically mainstream
We are in Adelaide for a winter holiday, but before heading off to our base in Port Willunga, South of Adelaide, we shop up for goodies at the Adelaide Central Market. Two days later we are at the prize winning Saturday Willunga Farmers Market – smaller and more grass roots local growers. Between these markets we barely need a supermarket and our shelves are stocked with great local produce for the next 10 days of holiday. It would be so cool to live here and have it all so close.

Our base for exploring the Barossa is Almond Hill B&B, in the village of Angaston. Easy to find on the outskirts of the town, we drive up the hill surrounded by flowering lavendar and rosemary, and pull in to park by a rhinoceros (iron) and the donkeys (two real ones), an alpaca and two sheep with week old lambs completes the menagarie.

I love these Australian names, heading on the Fleurieu Peninsula out from Port Willunga, through Myponga to Yankalilla essentially following the Tribuke Dreaming Trail. We dropped off at Lilla’s, a café on the main road – they were closed but offered warmly to make a coffee while they prepared for the evening rush. Read more
Our base for exploring the Barossa is the amazing Almond Hill B&B and after a fabulous breakfast we head for our first coffee hit of the day– Blond Coffee on the main street of Angaston. It was a good choice (we come back three times before we leave), a deli style café with lots of space, great food, and large glass windows to watch the passing traffic.
I am in Adelaide for a couple of weeks – it’s winter but the weather is mild. We are in the city for a day. Adelaide has a fabulous Central Market open Tuesday – Saturday until 1pm. It is undercover, with great parking next door – fresh fruit and vegetables, olives, cheeses, fish, cakes and breads. It has everything you might need for a week of delicious meals – and soon that is exactly what we have. Last stop is coffee at Luigias – a must to catch your breath and watch the world go by.
