The city of Adelaide has many things to offer, but one thing that is truly iconic of the city is the central market, which is the only one of its kind in Australia.
The market’s story began in 1869, when a group of grocers in a bout of rebellion, broke away from the popular East End Market at the time to set up the Adelaide Central Market, which was initially known by a very different name. Within 150 years of existence, the market survived two catastrophic fires.
The Food and Fare
The market has a range of cafes, eateries and stalls offering a vast variety of delicacies. One of the most famous vendors is Dough, which is legendary for its breads, pastries and sweet-treats. If you’re vacationing at one of serviced apartments in Adelaide CBD situated in the nearby vicinity, like Oaks Embassy, be sure to take a visit.
Meats and Dairy
‘Something Wild’ and ‘The Mettwurst Shop’ are two of Adelaide’s most renowned providers of high-quality meat-based goods operating within the market. If you love cheese, then check out ‘Say Cheese’ and ‘The Smelly Cheese Shop’ respectively.
Fruits and Vegetables
There are more than twenty fruit stalls to be found at the market, collectively selling more than a million kilograms of fresh produce every month. ‘Central Organic’ became the first in the market to be certified by the Organic Growers and Retailers Association of Australia.
