Central Market, Adelaide

Adelaide's beautiful, and historic Central Market is a food lovers nirvana. The markets have been in operation for over 140 years (!!!) with 80 stall holders offering everything from cheese, bread, eggs, meat, fruit + veggies...and a chocolate fountain that would give Willy Wonka diabetes.

During my weekend in Adelaide I was lucky enough to visit the markets a few times...if I could've packed Central Market into my suitcase to bring back to Sydney I would have. Alas, I was only traveling with carry on so I had to leave these wonderful markets behind.

Instead I shall leave you with a few happy snaps of my weekend in market paradise. C'mon Sydney - we NEED a city market like this ASAP - especially one where you can buy Gorgonzola by the SPOONFUL!


Adelaide Central Market can be found at 44 - 60 Gouger Street, Adelaide.  The markets are open Tuesday - Saturday.  Check their website for opening hours.
