Willunga Farmers Market, Willunga, SA, 5172
If you have a few hours spare on a Saturday morning, why not take a drive up or down the coast, depending on where home is for you, and head to the award winning* Willunga Farmers Market? After parking your car and hiking back to the market, held every Saturday from 8:00am till 12:30pm in the Willunga Town Sqaure, make sure before you ‘Meet the grower and taste the region’ that you locate the Piccalo Espresso coffee cart (read: heavily modified trailer) and grab yourself a latte. You can then enjoy wandering around the many and varied stalls of quality local produce, gourmet foods and wines, and organic plants.
Latte Quality – Exellent – I was told previously that it was the ‘best coffee on the peninsula’ – and they are probably right, but I always find it hard to judge when drinking out of cardboard. But it certainly was not a bad coffee!
Cost – $3.50 for a member of the Farmers Market – $3.85 for non-members [a membership to the Willunga Farmers Market is $35 annually]
Coffee Supplier – Mahalia Coffee from Robe, South Australia.
Fair Trade – not served by Piccalo at Willunga, but Mahalia do three varieties of Fair Trade Coffees.
Venue Suitable for:
- Casual get together with friends who share a love of good food and good coffee.
