Greek sweets, jams and tasty treats

Lina and Sam Kondoprias have been producing fresh food and tasty treats for the Adelaide Farmers’ Market since 2008. Lina’s Greek sweets are a highlight for those with a serious sweet tooth for fine-quality desserts. All ingredients are from South Australia and the eggs are free-range.

Their farm is located in the Riverland, South Australia. Drip irrigation is used and the trees are not sprayed.

Fruit and vegetables brought fresh from their farm include oranges, mandarins, lemons, and grapefruit, apricots, nectarines, plums. Sundried fruit includes pears, apricots, sultanas, peaches, prunes (all have sulphur except the prunes and sultanas). They also grow and sell butternut and Japanese pumpkins, watermelons, rockmelons and honey dew.

Lina’s Greek sweets are a specialty and include honey-dripped baklava (cigar shaped or the traditional square), a sour cherry strudel, koulouria (coffee biscuit), galaktobouriko (semolina-based custard pastry), kourabiedes (short pastry), coconut and orange cake, almond and orange cake (dairy- and gluten-free), melomakarona (honey biscuit), kataifee (shredded pastry with walnuts, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla sugar filling with syrup over the top) and an Italian tiramisu.

You will find Lina Kondoprias’ stall outside the pavilion at the Adelaide Farmers’ Market every Sunday.
