Short description—organiser

The Organic & Sustainable Market is South Australia's first certified organic market (with NASAA Certified Organic). We are also proud members of the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance. The market is unique as it has a strong commitment to ensuring that all food/ food products and ready-made foods sold (except fish and salt) are certified organic/ biodynamic/ in-conversion or made from certified organic/biodynamic ingredients. At times pre-certified organic/biodynamic products will also be sold to support growers/ producers currently undergoing a long and stringent organic/biodynamic certification process.

The market aims to provide a one-stop shopping experience where customers can shop for all their certified organic/biodynamic produce, honey, dry goods, wine, olive oil, meat, wine, ready-made foods and much more. It also has an array of eco-friendly, safety conscious, handmade, sustainable/ fair trade gifts, personal care and household products.
