A Taste of Eyre Peninsula
A TASTE OF EYRE PENINSULA
A Taste of Eyre Peninsula (formerly known as the Eyre Peninsula Farmer & Fishermens Market) was
launched by Adelaide-based celebrity chef Dorinda Haffner at the Eyre Peninsula Field Days in
August 2004. Established by a couple of volunteers passionate about food, wine, culture and the Eyre Peninsula, the event is a community based project designed to provide existing and new producers
with an outlet to promote and market their goods.
The event initially had the heart and soul of a Farmers Market. Over time the event has evolved into a
Food and Wine Festival across the Eyre Peninsula showcasing an eclectic mix of food and wine, live
music and amazing views to visitors from all over Australia and further afield.
From 2016 The Eyre Peninsula Farmer & Fishermens Market has been re-branded and will be known as
'A Taste of Eyre Peninsula’. The event will still be managed under the incorporation of the
Eyre Peninsula Farmer & Fishermens Market.

stallholders about how fish are caught, meat is raised and wine made.
