Experience young musicians while sampling local food & wines
Artisans at Greenock is a village based market held on the second Friday night of each month between October and March. The focus of the market is to highlight artists and their work but also to support food producers who use artisanal (handmade) practices in their food production.
2014 marks the sixth season of this popular Barossa Valley based market, with its third year now at the Stone Shed and adjacent carpark of Murray Street Vineyards. The gardens and grounds of the Murray Street Vineyards are a beautiful place to relax after work on a Friday, so visitors are encouraged to grab a drink of local wine or lager, a bite to eat and have a chat with the locals while they browse the stalls.
With over 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. There are also plenty of local wines available for tasting by the glass or purchase by the bottle as well as live music. The undercover stalls in the Stone Shed as well as the large marquees in the main car park ensure that all weather conditions are catered for.
A key feature of the markets is the Yambala (Young performing Artists and Members of the Barossa and Light Area). Each market night young musicians are offered the opportunity to perform on stage live in a highly supportive and encouraging environment. Musicians are requested to come along, either booking beforehand, or arriving on the night to perform a few of their favourite and popular songs.
The Artisans at Greenock Market is run by the Greenock Village Community Association as a community fundraising event. The Murray Street Vineyards are proud supporters of the local community by hosting the Artisans at Greenock Market on the 2nd Friday of each month from 5:30pm until 8:30pm.
