  • I love Adelaide Central market. The best place to visit on Saturday morning. The earlier the better. Start with breakfast in one of local cafes (loved Lucia's) and then head to explore the stalls
  • Great deals and most importantly fresh products. They have a range of different produce and if u ever get too tired walking around, there’s heaps of cafes, juice bars, little exotic restaurants and even oyster bars. Great way to spend your weekend and to just get your everyday produce there.
  • best place in Adelaide (if not Australia) to shop for groceries, huge variety of fresh produce. you can find all the unusual ingredients you need and the stall owners are passionate and knowledgable about their produce. throw in some very cool little eateries, I love Adelaide Central Market
  • Central market has been the same since I was young. Always keep coming back for good, cheap, fresh food. Retail staff are down to earth salt of the earth type offering great food and good value.
  • Great place. Lots of international food. Has one of Adelaides oldest Italian restaurants. Lucia’s is a great place for authentic Italian food. One of my wife’s cousins had lunch with business friends there every week for over thirty years. Make sure you get in early as it is always packed.
