One of the better places in Adelaide to visit just because of it's diversity and culture. Good for a cheap meal or even a middle level meal. Drinking alcohol outside of licensed premises is enforced by fines - apparently. It seems you can't drink alcohol and walk in public anywhere in Adelaide because it upsets the natives. Wide range of... More

The Adelaide Central Market has everything you will need for eating and drinking and shopping in one undercover location. The fantastic atmosphere, the quality of the products and the variety of goods is exceptional. There are lots of different places to eat including the Food court, and restaurants in nearby streets.

What a fab place, no matter what you fancy to eat its all there and so beautifully presented, take or make a map so you can navigate your way back to your favourite spots. Everyone looks happy so a wonderful place to chill, eat and do a spot of people watching

Easy parking above the market but a little expensive if you are there for more than two hours. I understand they are now offering free parking for the first hour. Large range of market stalls serving fresh produce surrounded by a variety of shops where I was able to purchase clothing, chemist items and some birthday cards which were a... More

For travellers to experience Adelaide a visit to Adelaide Central Market is a must. We live in rural SA and visit Adelaide on a regular basis. I love to start a day with a hearty breakfast with a yummy cafe latte at the market then wander around and pick up my specialty goods that are not in supermarkets. There are... More
