“An amazing taste sensation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The food was so fresh. Best place for breakfast (aim to arrive no later than 715am, to avoid the crowds) to start the day - the eggs were free range. Quality Coffee. Very friendly store holders.

“Spectacular - assault of the senses!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

So much fabulous produce, really well put together, interesting stall layout and designs. Foodie paradise - lots of local and international products to choose from. A must visit when you are in Adelaide - plan a meal for when you are there and take the shopping bag to stock up on supplies- everything was so fresh!

“The best selection of fresh food, spices, coffee and people .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

I could wander around the markets all day. Such an array of fruit and veg, meats, breads, cakes, coffee beans, tea leaves, delicatessen delights, sauces, spreads, salamis ......

“Excellent go for breakfast and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is a small, easy to get around market with lots of great local produce - fresh fruit and veg, locally made pantry items like marinated olives, etc, cheeses (you can try before you buy), gourmet brand items from the region, butchers, etc etc. And great coffee and lunch cafes. I always go here for breakfast when ever I"m visiting Adelaide. I usually stay at the Hilton - it's just around the corner, and then go to the market for breakfast (and then maybe for lunch too), and buy a few gourmet items to take back home.
I recommended some friends to go there but they went in the afternoon - I think you have to go in the morning... it is pretty much closed after lunch.

“AN INDOOR MARKET NOT TO MISS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This market is an indoor market with lot of little shops to purchase souvenirs, wearables, and food. It's directly next door to the Hilton and a fun way to spend an hour or two. The fresh fruits and vegetables are abundant as are tasty cheeses and meats. At the very end of the market you can walk directly into Chinatown. That end of the market definitely has an Asian influence, including several places to have a delicious lunch.

My favorite shop was the Persian Art Treasure store. There are all sorts Persian made tablecloths, pillowcases, and trinket boxes. If you're in the market for a Persian rug, that's the place to go.
