Adelaide Central Market

The Adelaide Central Market teems with life and colour all year round, and it is a special place for regulars who wouldn’t shop anywhere else. Here you will find a wide range of fresh food, all under one roof: fruit and vegetables, meat and poultry, seafood, baked goods, sweets, nuts, as well as gourmet cheeses. Shoppers can also take a break in some of the hippest cafes in the city.


For the best Adelaide shopping experience, there are two main areas you should visit. The first is around Rundle Mall--the heart of retail, dining, and entertainment in the city. The second area is to the southwest of the central grid of streets, between Grote and Gouger Streets, where you will find the Adelaide Central Market, known as the food pantry of Adelaide. Here you will discover the incredible abundance of raw ingredients Australia produces. This area is also a showcase of the melting pot of cultures that make up Adelaide today, with the sights and smells of Italian, Vietnamese, Lebanese, Greek, Chinese, and Japanese cuisines to feast upon--just to name a few.
