A very large bustling market with a great range of fruit, vegetables,souvenirs,meats, deli, bakery and other products.Visited in the afternoon & it was still quite busy so the morning must have been even busier. Plenty of flowers pre Mothers Day.

The Adelaide market is a central venue for a large range of products. My partner and I particularly enjoy the friendliness of the shop folk and their knowledge about their products.
