Uraidla Market, Adelaide Hills
When it comes to food, freshness and quality are important. These are the top two amongst many reasons why I buy local produce whenever possible; and Uraidla Market is one of my local favourites.
Purchasing local goods also supports small farmers and independent craftsmen, gives you a chance to meet the growers and the makers, helps country towns to prosper, and benefits the environment by reducing pollution of long-distance transportation.
Uraidla Market takes place in the Uraidla Institute Hall on Greenhill Road, South Australia, on the first and third Sunday of each month, 10:00–15:00.
This small market offers a good range fresh fruits, vegetables, berries, oils, eggs, wines, jams, plants, skin care products, knitwear and crafts. There are also home-made cakes and biscuits with tea and coffee, and a barbecue. It is only a short and picturesque drive from Adelaide, and is well worth the trip.
