A message from the chair...
Hello fellow market shoppers. Isnt this a wonderful time of the year? The Market is beginning to fill up with spring and summer produce: strawberries, cherries and avocados. The full array of summer greens is also spectacular.
Those of you that have visited the Market recently, will have noticed the gradual introduction of some additional options for a snack or breakfast as you move around. We have a burger, farmhouse crepes, toasties
and a breakfast egg dish. These small stalls are additions to the excellent breakfast stall that has served us for years. Youll find the new offerings around the Market with small shaded seating areas to give us all the opportunity to relax with friends and family as part of our market excursions. Its another reason to visit. Read more about our hot food stalls on pg 5 .
As the summer produce has begun to come in, we are at capacity in our main site and are soon to expand to the Library Car Park section of the Market. So, dont forget to cross the road to find some of your old and new favourite stalls.
This summer is already shaping up to be sensational with not 1, but 2 Twilight Markets!

Please note that we are relocating for this very special market as we allow for set up of the Tour Down Under race day to continue.
The third round of the Young Farmers Scholarship has now closed and three outstanding applicants have been interviewed. We are very excited about the quality of applicants that this scholarship attracts and the resultant variety they will bring to our Market. A more detailed update on our Young Farmers Scholarship recipients can be found on pg 6 .
Our Christmas Twilight market on Wednesday 23rd December is going to end the year with a bang. Come and join us to stock up for Christmas, see Santa, hear the Choir and enjoy some of the snacks, beer and wine that will be on offer. If you miss it or love it, you can enjoy another Twilight Market on Friday, 22nd January, 2016 just before the Tour Down Under hits the streets of Willunga township. Last year, there was quite a buzz in the Market Square at this market. Catch up on all of our coming events and summer opening hours below.
Im sorry to say that the Christmas Twilight Market also marks the end of an era for all of us from a staff perspective. Billy Doecke, our Assistant Manager, is leaving us for new pastures after five and a half years of exemplary service to the Market. We wish her very well and were sure she wont be able to resist a visit to the Market and to us, as well. We are also losing Alex Merrick, our Administration Assistant for a year. Yes, Alex is going to have a baby. She leaves us in February and, hopefully, she will be back in 2017.
Best wishes to every one of you for a very Merry Christmas enjoying lots of Market produce.
See you at the Market.

The 2015 annual Wilmark Awards were sold out for the 3rd year running, and with such a dedicated crowd of shoppers and stallholders fun was sure to ensue.
Held at Fino Willunga, the annual awards are an opportunity for shoppers and stallholders to gather to celebrate the end of winter and break bread together. In addition, this is the perfect opportunity for shoppers to show their appreciation to our stallholders by voting for their favourite producers across a range of fields. In return WFM producers also vote for their favourite shopper as a way to say thank you for being strong supporters of the market.
Congratulations to all the winners, each of which excel in their field and are deserving of these awards:
Favourite stall: From Humble Grounds
Best service: Do Bee Honey
Best dressed stall: Bull Creek Garlic
Favourite product: Small World Bakery sourdough bread
Best Shopper: Sarah and Wayne Flew
We would like to thank everyone who attended our night of nights. It was a fabulous evening with mounds of delicious food, wine and beer donated from local wineries and above all else, fantastic friends.

Mulch. Mulch and compost is your friend, with the extra layers not only adding much needed nutrients to the soil, but also protecting it and your plants roots from the harsh summer sun.
Shade. Most veggie patches are designed to get as much sun exposure as possible, but once the summer sun comes into full effect instead of relishing the rays your veggies are most likely wilting under the suns hard gaze. Rig up a temporary shade to spare your
