We walked from our hotel earlyish on a Sunday morning through what seemed like a deserted Adelaide. We stepped off Grote Street and it seemed like half the city population was all in the one place. As a regular market shopper at home I loved "window shopping" the fantastic variety of food stuffs (and admittedly enjoying the odd sample). A... More

one of the most visited places in adelaide I would think. Bustling crowds, and a great array of fruit and veg, meats and seafood and the best homemade steak and mushroom pie I have tasted. Also a bar where we sat and rested our feet while partaking of the beverage and ordering fish and chips for lunch.

If you are looking to pick up some food this is the right place. There are not many retail shops (only a few scattered through the arcade) however it has all food items you could imagine. Fruit & Veg, buts, sweets, meats, seafood etc. it is very clean and of course gets busy!

A truly named Food Market, this is the place to go to for fresh produce, cheese, meats and plenty of locally made foodstuff. There were stalls selling pies, homemade ready to heat dinners as well. All the people I've interacted with in the stalls were all very helpful and happy to help you out.

I was totally impressed by the extensive range of locally produced and grown produce at this market. It is how I think all markets should be. Coming from a place where the local market is filled with imported (internationally and interstate) produce I was envious that locals can access food sourced from their own state. Most produce was labelled with... More

The market is full of amazing local produce ranging from cheeses ( a lot of cheeses!!!) fresh fruit and veggies, breads, hams, dips, and desserts. We ended up buying s range of fantastic produce and taking it back to our hotel for a dinner with some SA wine. And what an incredible dinner it was.

The amount of produce available at the market was amazing! Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese, deli products, meat, seafood, baked goods and gourmet selections. I had expected to see more craft-type stalls there so that was a little disappointing. There is parking on-site but it can be a nightmare to get out of, it took us about 25... More

Riding the Free City Connector #98 (# 99 can also be used ), I got off at the stop closest to the Central Market and Chinatown. I visited first the Adelaide Central Market that sells fresh fruits, vegetables, cheese, flowers, fish, other sea foods, etc. There are also other shops selling clothes and other items. Please see attached pictures. I... More

Great market! Quite small and compact by other cities standards but has great variety and plenty of choice. Mainly a food market with everything you need or want in one place. Takeaway a gourmet snack, your weekly groceries or have a meal or coffee on site. Park you car above the market or arrive within 50 metres from the tram... More

Amazing fresh food, amazing selections of foods, great smells, free tastings, great coffee shops and China Town is Adjacent to market. Lucia's restsurant serves yum food. Or just stock up on yummies and walk across the road to VIctoria Square and have a feast in the park. Take a pull along shopping trolley with you because you always ended up... More
