Ripe for the picking - McLaren Vale’s summer harvest

Christmas is done and dusted for another year, and as we awaken from our festive slumber with memories of pudding, turkey and the Boxing Day Test - we round out the season's indulgence with Summer's best fruit and veg harvest from across the region.

McLaren Vale locals are lucky to enjoy the weekly Willunga Farmers Market, held each Saturday morning from 8am - 12pm at the market square. Fresh, seasonal produce direct from the growers - the very best of our region's farm-to-plate offering.

What's currently available across the region and from the market? View the weekly Farmers Market stall-holders list here.

In-season produce available during the summer months includes:

  • Stone fruits including festive favourite, cherries
  • Berries - blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries
  • Tomatoes 
  • Chilli
  • Lettuce, herbs, rocket
  • Onion
  • Garlic

The McLaren Vale Grape Wine & Tourism Association acknowledges the Kaurna people as the Traditional Owners of the Country where the McLaren Vale Region is situated today, and pays its respect to Elders past and present.
