I was very excited for this market, but was shocked by how stuffed it is!! There's barely space to move, or even breathe! People are everywhere, but the shops are really awesome... The prices can range from ok to really expensive but can find all sorts of food there (fruits, veggies, cheese, bread...). There's not lots of good offers there... More

This is bar far the best market in Australia. I have visited those in QLD, NSW and Vic and none come close. Have coffee and eggs at Lucias, grab mushrooms from the mushroom man, smallgoods from Marino's. You'll love every bit of it.

We made a few trips to the Central Market during our short stay in Adelaide. Great fruit & vegies, amazing cured meats, wonderful cheese, a specialist mushroom stall, great coffee and a terrific variety of picnic provisions to stock up on before heading out to do some wine tasting. A must see if you're in Adelaide!

Good parking, and any number of well presented stalls with fresh local produce from meats, breads, cheeses, fruit and candy. Clean, well presented and good value.

It's a food market and there's lots of it! They have a variety of shops selling nuts and confectionary, cold cuts, cheese, fruits and vegs. They have a shop that sells seafood and a branch of Haigh's Chocolates in there. I bought a lot of nuts from Charlesworth which was good quality and reasonably priced.

adjacent to China town, this little gem just a little walk from the city centre and walked into the bustling food scene with art work display around the place. Very atmospheric and enjoyable to shop around then have a lunch or cuppa by the the food street next to it. Nice.

The Adelaide market must be one of the better markets in the world. The whole atmosphere is great with quality produce & foods. There are also many great smaller restaurants to eat in plus coffee shops. One thing concerns me though - there seem to be a few vacant stalls popping up which you never saw before.

We are cheese and cracker people, and found the markets absolutely fantastic. Has great cafes for breakfast. Plenty of samples which makes buying easy.And to see just a large variety of produce is just yummy. We don't think you will be disappointed.
