This was such a beautiful and educational experience. I’ve lived in Adelaide all my life, visited the market frequently on a Friday night as a kid (40+ years ago). I have not been back in so long and cannot recommended this tour enough, whether you’re discovering the market for the first time, or like me - rediscovering it. I took my 20 year old daughter and we were amazed at the the beautiful eateries and just how much the market supports and showcases amazing South Australian produce. Thanks to Cheryl and Jenny for the insight. We loved indulging in more than a few market treats after the tour & have made a pledge to make it a regular mum-daughter day out

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour which was conducted by Cheryl Turner who did a fantastic job. We met at Stall 66 with 8 other people where the tour started. Cheryl was very professional, informative and friendly. Because of the Covid virus we were not able to sample any of the products in the markets but were well compensated with take away samples from all the stalls we visited. At the end of the tour we were able to select a complementary bottle of wine from the wine stall. Even though we have lived in Adelaide for 50 years it was good to hear about the history of the market and the new plans for the market , some of which we were not aware of.

We had a wonderful time on this tour. 4 people in the group led by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who explained the history, progress and future of the Central Market. Each stall we stopped at had an interesting back story, we got to speak with many of the stall owners and were given a small sample of their produce. Having been introduced we would now like to learn more about the area but we would recommend this initial highlights tour to all.

Absolutely loved this tour! We are local and have been going to the Adelaide markets off and on for 45years but we discovered so much more on this tour. Cheryl, our guide, was passionate, informative and personable. She has built up a great relationship with many of the local market stall holders and due to this we were fortunate to sample many of the wares, whilst adhering to Covid safe practices. I have visited many Markets across the world and ours is right up with the best of them. We thoroughly recommend discovering more of what our wonderful city has to offer with this tour.

It was great to learn the history and the future of the market in such a short period of time. Although we weren’t allowed to consume food while standing due to COVID restrictions, we were given heaps of food samples to take home. The discount vouchers were also nice. Thanks Cheryl!
