  • 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 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.
