  • Always an amazing trip and experience. Perfect for kids to explore food and support local. Going during the week if you can is great as it is a little quieter. I do love the hustle and bustle when it's busy though as well!
  • Whether you live or visit Adelaide the Central market is a must! Great fresh produce local and imported. Fish, meat and a variety of organic products are available too. It is open late on Fridays and Saturdays after 11 am it is full of bargains. The restaurants inside of the market are good a varies from Paella to Italian or Asian. You can enjoy a nice bottle of wine or order a fresh squeezed juice, all in the same place. Lots of kids running around too, so very kids friendly.
  • Always such a charming place to visit, with new shops popping up regularly to explore and enjoy. Recently, an organic shop selling lots of sustainability items popped up and I am so pleased! Fantastic food, reliably delicious coffee and a bustling atmosphere. Love visiting whenever I can.
  • The markets are amazing, they are full of life, laughter, good food and bargains! You can get everything from shoes to food. No matter what you want, they have it! The vendors are super friendly and always down to chat and help you make best choices to go with your needs, tastes and plans.
  • Great market with a good selection of fresh foods and coffee shops. Nice atmosphere and extremely friendly shopkeepers. Good price , budget friendly. Not too big, around 30 minutes to see every shop.
