Bought some great kitchen tools and food items. Cheap eats in nearby Chinatown complex. Worth a visit. Close to Victoria Square and tram stop.

First of all make sure you have plenty of bags or one of those fantastic shopping trolleys as you are going to buy more than you think. We visited on Saturday and spent a couple of hours including visiting the Asian Food Court next door - loved sampling the food and buying the bargains especially as the stalls closed down... More

It was my first stop after arriving in Adelaide. We arrived at the market just at lunch time and the market was bustling with the lunch crowd. As we were hungry, we hopped over to the Asian Food Court for lunch before exploring the market. The moment I stepped into the market, I was immediately attracted by the rainbow colours... More

The food markets here are AWESOME. If you like mushrooms, go to the stall that only deals with mushrooms. Oh boy! Such choice and way cheaper than in supermarkets. Then there's cheese and wonderful seafood and just the most fantastically fresh vegetables. I wish I'd known about these markets when I first started coming to Adelaide. They are open Tuesday...

This is absolutely a must see for a visit to Adelaide. There's so much to sample and buy. There is no need to plan visits to restaurants every night - stock up on quality nibbles and enjoy a buffet back at your accommodation or take it down by the river for a bit of a picnic. We love Adelaide Central... More

We came upon this thinking it was just another market and we were pleasantly surprised. Everything and anything under the sun. Great assortment of food. Supermarket next door and even a pub with pokies. We spent over 3 hours checking everything out. My favourite was the Asian Food Court. Great SouthEast Asian cuisine.

If you've seen one food market, you've probably seen them all - until you've visited Adelaide Central Market. This place is simply phenomenal and is a must visit if you're in Adelaide. There are so many unique food options from so many vendors. I would go to this place every day if I had more time in Adelaide. If I... More

Not a very big market comparing to other such as QVM in Melbourne but it is just nice to walk around and the store owners are mostly very helpful and friendly. Had a great breakfast at the Big Table, only the waiting time is a bit long...

As we were staying nearby we took a 5 minute walk to what we understand is the biggest indoor fruit and vegetable market in the Southern Hemisphere. And the array of beautifully displayed fresh fruit and vegetables was amazing, including seasonal produce such as figs, pears, watermelon, strawberries etc. Many other food items such as nuts, dried fruits, sweets, yoghurt...

We didn't realise this was here and bought some supermarket food. Make the effort to find the market and get delicious fresh fruit, vegetables and other gourmet foods. Don't waste time and money at the supermarkets.
