  • Whether you live or visit Adelaide the Central market is a must! Great fresh produce local and imported. Fish, meat and a variety of organic products are available too. It is open late on Fridays and Saturdays after 11 am it is full of bargains. The restaurants inside of the market are good a varies from Paella to Italian or Asian. You can enjoy a nice bottle of wine or order a fresh squeezed juice, all in the same place. Lots of kids running around too, so very kids friendly.
