  • I bought a vegetable rice was not very good? Different prices depending on the store, so I look around and it takes hours. Both tea and dinner Café and restaurant. Parking is free for one hour. Have a little seafood shops.

  • A great place to visit even if you don't need anything. The atmosphere and effort involved in these markets is extraordinary and really make shopping & eating food a real joy. 
  • In addition, we stumbled in full Chinese new year! Because the market is located in Chinatown beautiful atmosphere, l restaurants inside and outside took d assault, concerts and parades come with drums! A local atmosphere that we have love market is very beautiful and you will find all the local produce a lot of stalls offering fruit juice or fresh vegetables! You will spend a nice moment of local life

  • A wonderfully alive and organised market. I wish Sydney has a market like this. There's so many good quality food in the market. From meats to lots of ethnic and traditional treats and even knick knacks. We ended up visiting this market almost everywhere of our stay at the market. This market is also connected to Adelaide's chinatown where you can score yourself some cheap feed. Tip: Come here for breakfast and enjoy the atmosphere!
  • Great variety of fresh food stalls, fantastic character.
  • Fantastic place to visit great coffee fantastic Asian food best cheese fruit & veg stalls family friendly atmosphere I'm a regular local visitor it's like my second home away from home supermarkets plenty of food courts cafes restaraunts love this place been around for a very long time since I'm guessing by the old photos 1950's iconic place on the map to stop and see go check it out one of the best markets in Australia
  • Great quality, affordable, fresh, local food - can't go wrong with the Adelaide Central Markets
  • I love this market. Diverse, but not so big that it takes hours to get from one section to another. Convenient parking and lots of great eateries close by. Not open everyday.
