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.

Guests and shoppers can experience the produce by purchasing light meals prepared by chefs and
producers using local product. These can be enjoyed with a glass of local wine, sold by the glass or bottle.
There are tables and chairs for people to sit and enjoy the live music and amazing views. Guests can
also try and buy a delicious selection 
of seafood, meats, small goods, wine, baked items,
olives and olive oil, honey, condiments, fruit and nuts and more. 

 

The event supports and promotes sustainable farming practices, bio-dynamic and organic produce, and stallholders whether they be chefs, farmers or producers must have grown, bred, caught, pickled,
brewed, smoked, baked or made the goods to participate. Guests are encouraged to chat to the 
stallholders about how fish are caught, meat is raised and wine made.
