  • An iconic place in Adelaide, South Australia. Great atmosphere. Vibrant. Great range of stalls - fruit, veg, produce, flowers, bread, cheese and nuts, crafts... a must visit place. To buy or just browse and wander, it is worth the visit. Centrally located. Close to tram, bus stops and car parks.
  • Great place to spend a couple of hours wandering up and down the aisles. Try some gin from Kangaroo Island Stall. There are plenty of fresh fruit and veg stalls, cheese stalls, bakeries, meats and drinks and pretty much everything else you can think of. Would say it's slightly better than Melbourne's Victoria Market, everyone seems more friendly and there's a more relaxed atmosphere.
  • THE place to go for your fresh fruit and veggies. Great range of foods from around the world. Buses stop right outside.
  • Had a great time at the markets! There is so much gourmet food at reasonable prices. I went in the afternoon and there was not a big crowd. Was great I can't wait to come back!
  • A must if you visit Adelaide! It's the thumping heart of the foodies Paradise. China town next door... Fresh produce galore. The cheese....
