A friendly market with local produce and goods
The Lyndoch Community Market is held in the Institute on the main street, The Barossa Valley Way. Lyndoch is the first Barossa town you come to if you are taking the route from Gawler.
The market is held every month, even January, on the second Saturday of the month.

The market showcases both regular and occasional stallholders. There is a wide selection of goods for sale, mostly handmade, including card making supplies, ready-made cards, wooden gifts, and lots more. There were many hand sewn items on the day I visited such as microwave bowl holders so you don't burn your hands and handy little sunglasses pouches. Sweet little kid's backpacks with an owl motif also looked fun.
There was a good range of treen products, that is things made from wood. One craftsman does fretwork and he had some unique and delicately made wooden ornaments and bowls. Another woodworker has small boxes for jewellery and other small gift lines such as keyrings. Some are made from local trees that had fallen down.

Available food purchases include local olive oil, spiced oils and condiments. A local baker has a good range of baked goods such as cakes, doughnuts, pies and pasties to take home. The sausage sizzle tent is popular in the morning and for lunch and raises funds for charity.

There are some good potted plants at a cheap price here. Some make great gifts as they have been potted up into attractive pots. You are sure to find something you like at this community-based market. So next time you are planning a trip to the Barossa, go on the second Saturday of the month and stop by to support the local economy. If you live in the area, you may also be interested in Karen's Sunday evening dinner and card making workshop sessions.
