Spoil your guests with the freshest feast this year
I just love markets, and even better I love Christmas markets. At this time of year, there is something comforting in wandering around a market selecting special gifts from handmade offerings and wonderful fresh fruit, vegetables and other goods from the people who grow them. Take your choice from fresh seafood, confectionery, smallgoods and pates, baked goods and honey, jams and preserves amongst a wealth of other amazing products. There is something here for everyone.

This year, the Adelaide Farmers' Christmas Twilight Market will be on at the Adelaide Showground on Wednesday 20 December 2017 commencing at 3 pm and giving you a full 4 hours (through to 7 pm) to shop to your heart's delight.

The market features farmers and producers from every region in the state with the largest selection of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables and the best variety of Christmas hams, chicken and lamb. Rather than sugar plums dancing in my head, I can see fresh plums, peaches and apricots from the market decorating a large Christmas table full of fun, laughter, family and friends.

As you wander around the market selecting everything you need for your Christmas feast, you will be able to enjoy live original acoustic music. Pick up some tips from the special festive cooking demonstration with Rebecca Sullivan from the Granny Skills Movement and award-winning cookbook author Rachel de Thample. Just for the kiddies, there will be a free super bouncy castle to keep them entertained while you shop or while you simply put up your feet and allow them to bounce.

The Adelaide Farmers' Market is the largest farmers' market in South Australia and is located at the southern end of the Adelaide Showground with entry via Leader Street, Wayville. The market occupies the Market Pavillion and carpark directly adjacent to Leader Street and the Goodwood train-line.

The market is run by a not-for-profit organisation which supports small family farms, agricultural diversity and fresh and seasonal choices for consumers. This year, come along and support local farmers and be inspired for your Christmas feast by the full variety of fresh produce available.
