Join a selection of Kangaroo Island food producers at the Penneshaw Markets where the KI Farmer’s Market and KI Community Market combine to offer regional food direct from the producer, together with artisan crafts, arts and bric-a-brac.

Meet the very people who grow, farm or make Kangaroo Island award winning regional foods - taste the olive oils, wines, honey and learn why and how it is produced. 

Island chefs offer ready to eat Island produce and home baked snacks and biscuits.  Tastings, breakfast, coffee and a great village atmosphere are all on offer.

Stay for the day and enjoy lunch at one of Penneshaw’s cafes or the Penneshaw Hotel. Laze on the beach, meander along one of the nearby walking trails around Penneshaw, fish off the jetty or beach, take a thrilling ocean safari ride with KI Ocean Safari or explore the Dudley Peninsula with KI Wildlife Safari.
