I went here on a Saturday morning with my wife and we really enjoyed ourselves. There is an abundance of cheap, fresh fruit and veg in addition to lots of coffee, warm food, health food stores etc. I particularly liked the organic fruit and veg and the various health food shops. Remember to takes some bags for your purchases!

As an avid foodie living in Queensland where diverse quality smallgoods, health foods and (certain) produce are almost as difficult to find as hen's teeth ..... going to Adelaide, and the Central Markets in particular, was like arriving in food paradise.

We went twice on our recent visit to Adelaide .... wonderful aromas wafting out of Zumas, pieces of polished apples offered for tasting, an amazing choice of dried fruits, nuts and other healthy foods that I could have only dreamed of. And the smallgoods and cheeses ..... wow!

Loved the buzz of the markets and the different cultural representations there.

This produce market is located in Adelaide's CBD, adjacent to the legal precinct, central square, Chinatown and the Hilton Hotel.

Hence, it is a good place to go for a stroll. It's the last CBD produce market in Australia (the Victoria Market in Melbourne is principally an apparel market).

Adelaide people are very proud of their market.

Usually, it trades Tuesday- Saturday; check their website for specifics.

Go early to mid morning on Saturday, or eveing on Friday, for the best atmosphere. You'll find it's busy with locals.

For something to eat, you have a variety of options:

1. Buy a snack from a market stall- there's lots of choices

2. There are cafes and Asian casual restaurants in the market, as well as Chinese restaurants in Chinatown next door, and cafes and restaurants in Gouger Street, at the southern end of the market.

Try Lucia's for pasta or coffee; Zuma's for hearty bacon and eggs; Ding Hao for Dim Sum; T Chow for Cantonese.

This is a vibrant and genuine working market which us well worth visiting.

Fabulous foods plus lots of inexpensive trinkets from all over the world and even higher end treats like antique clothing. Close at 5PM -- and there is lots to see -- so be sure to get there in time to spend time in every booth.

Adelaide's Central Market may be smaller than Melbourne's iconic Queen Victoria Market but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in general hustle'n'bustle, great food and keen prices.

Most tastes from the gourmand to the simple are catered for here, and the stallholders are rarely rude. However it is the good design of the aisles and the history of the building that captivates me.

If you also want so-called 'dry goods', there is a Coles supermarket down the street.
