  • I love coming to the markets! If you like food, there is nothing not to love! There are a variety of new "ready to eat" places that keep popping up that make this a great place to meet friends for a meal or a coffee. If you want to get something to make at home, the markets have EVERYTHING! Fruit, veg, smallgoods, cheeses, grains, legumes - if you can't find it here I doubt you should be eating it! Quality of produce is always fantastic - ranging from organic and premium goods to discount produce for stews etc. Everyone should go there!
  • Great for snacks, meals, tastings, shopping and stocking up on fruit and veg. Vendors are always giving out great deals to keep up with each other. Seven brothers is our favourite stall. Cheap cheap fresh produce and such a great bunch of people who work there :)
  • Adelaide Central Market is supposed closed on Monday but I guess Asians are too hardworking to leave their stalls closed for two consecutive days. Which is wonderful because we got to visit it, and we got ourselves mini kangaroo soft toys for AUD2.5 each? It's crazy how cute and cheap they are. That's probably my only souvenir from Adelaide but you know it's good enough.
  • I love this market. I can find many fruits, vegetables. Many souvenir shops here. Really close from tram and bus stop, so easy. Also i like coffee shop here.
  • Wow this place is great! So many food stalls including fruit, veggies, fish, meat, bakery. They also have a food court area that includes overseas cuisine from Asia. Definitely worth to visit
