A wonderful way to say 'Hello' and give recognition and reward the various market gardeners and primary producers in South Australia for their top quality fresh produce is to support their stalls at our various community markets. Adelaide is blessed with several community markets, and to name just some; The Adelaide Showground Farmers' Market, Norwood Community Markets, and Gilles Street Market all have their unique and friendly appeal to shoppers.

If you love markets for their variety of produce and wares with a friendly country atmosphere then The Lions' Market at Woodside is the place for you to visit on the 3rd Saturday of each month. The Lions' Market at Woodside is located in the Woodside Institute Hall and the surrounding outside area, on the corner of Onkaparinga Valley Road and Nairn Road.

You will find there is a large variety of stalls with various items from books, clothing and any number of handcrafted items to capture your interest. From wonderful selection of fresh fruit, vegetables, home baked cakes and pastries, bakery made cakes, pastries and bread, not forgeting that some of the local hills produce growers and gardeners come from far and wide to sell their fresh fruit, vegetables, bulbs and plants at this market.
