An abundance of deliciousness the Adelaide Central Market. 

Farmers’ markets

The Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market has quickly become an Adelaide institution. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Sip a coffee as you buy fresh fruit, vegetables and produce directly from the farmers, growers and producers. Don’t worry about your kids. They can sign up for cooking lessons or learn how to start a vegetable garden.

Across at Port Adelaide, in the Hart’s Mill Precinct, you’ll find the community and foodie market, Wild at Hart. The market is held from 9am to 2pm on Sundays. Enjoy farm direct and organic produce, a large cross section of multicultural foods made fresh to order, fresh juice, coffee and a selection of local craft.

At Market Shed on Holland you’ll find tasty goodies, with a special emphasis on organic, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free foods. Held every Sunday from 9am to 3pm, products on offer vary with the seasons but you can expect to find a collection of cafés, an artisan bakery, fresh fruit and vegetables, aromatic spices and a variety of wholefoods. A number of stalls also offer a mouth-watering selection of freshly-cooked sweet and savoury morsels.

Vintage and fashion

Attention fashionistas! Don’t miss the Gilles Street Market in the city. Held on a Sunday, once or twice a month, the market features vibrant designer samples, fashion clearances, jewellery and accessories.

It has lots in common with the Bowerbird Bazaar, which is held twice yearly at the Adelaide Showgrounds. Groove your way around the stalls to the resident DJ’s chic soundtrack. Bowerbird Bazaar sells arts, crafts, interior design and homewares.

Curiosities and collectables

On selected Fridays in summer, Ebenezer Place, just off Rundle Street in the city, turns into a summer extravaganza, with markets, bands, street performers and entertainment.

The Adelaide Night Market is held along North Terrace on the last Sunday of each month, during summer. There is street food from around the world, gifts, jewellery, live music and much more.

If you're heading to Port Adelaide, make sure you stop past the Fisherman’s Wharf Market. It's open on Sundays, and you’ll find CDs, craft, antiques and collectables. You might even see the Port River dolphins in the Port River nearby.
