One of the Barossa's most awarded markets
Artisans at Greenock is a great village based market held at Greenock Oval with the primary foci of the market to highlight local artists and their work, and also to support food producers who use artisanal (handmade) practices in their food production.

Artisans at Greenock


2015 marks the seventh season of this popular Barossa Valley based market, and as with all good things it continues to evolve. Previously held over six Friday nights in Spring and Summer where weather conditions played a significant part in attendances, the Artisans at Greenock Market has now consolidated to three primary major events each year being :

Christmas Market (2nd Friday in December)
Easter Market (Easter Monday)
Gourmet Market (Barossa Gourmet Weekend Sunday)

With a list of achievements far outweighing expectations, the Artisans at Greenock Market has established itself as one of the special community events in the Barossa Valley. From the humble beginnings of just 12 stalls in 2009 to a database of over 100 stallholders, Greenock has created a strong brand that remains active and growing.

More Great Food


With in excess of 40 stallholders expected at each market, there is sure to be something for everyone. There's always an interesting selection of food on offer including such delicacies as the goat sausages and vegetarian chilli corn chips just to name a few. And being part of the Barossa means that there is also plenty of local wines available for tasting either by the glass or purchase by the bottle. The live music creates the perfect environment to sit back, enjoy the food and wine, and escape reality for a short while.

Live Music


A key feature of the markets is the Yambala (Young performing Artists and Members of the Barossa and Light Area). At each of the markets young musicians are offered the opportunity to perform on stage live in a highly supportive and encouraging environment. Musicians are also requested to come along, either booking beforehand, or arriving on the day to perform a few of their favourite and popular songs.
