We’ve been enjoying the Winter sunshine this last week and on Saturday we headed down to the Willunga Farmers Market to check out what was on offer, the market is on every Saturday morning.
South Australia has some amazing produce and the Willunga Farmers Market is a great place to sample what’s in season and get inspired to cook up something different.
The kids can smell chocolate milk a mile away, so thanks to Fleurieu Milk they were easily pleased allowing us more time to meander around and enjoy a coffee from Piccolo coffee van.
We planned our visit to coincide after the morning rush, however this meant we missed out on some of the awesome baked goods and produce, but crowds don’t usually make for the most enjoyable experience when thinking about dragging little kids around or navigating with a wheelchair.
The market is also dog friendly, please follow the rules to ensure the market can be enjoyed by all.
The town of Willunga is currently undergoing a street scaping project so it wasn’t easy to access the market, however once we got a park and were through the entrance the market itself was on a combination of paved and compacted surfaces so navigating with the pram and a wheelchair was fine.
Car parking is a challenge, plan to get dropped off near the hotel and get your companion to go and park the car and meet up with you in the market.
The main eating area is on a surface of bark chips, so if you didn’t want to tackle that we suggest taking all your purchases to go.
There is a functional accessible bathroom.
Access to the ATM is ramped however due to current car parking arrangements access is not great, our tip take money with you!
We have no doubt access will be improved once the street scaping project is completed, so it might be better to delay your visit a couple of months to ensure a smoother experience.
