Exploring Adelaide's food hub

This easy introduction to the market will showcase numerous stalls and reveal their stories as you take in a precinct with more than 150 years of history. Visit the oldest remaining stall and learn how the market came to exist; discover local delicacies and explore how multiculturalism fits into the area today. You’ll be taken through by a born-and-raised local who will share their unique market stories.

Sample tasty morsels to kickstart your morning while being shown the market by a local guide. The one-hour Adelaide Central Market Tour is an essential part of understanding the city in greater context, and not to be missed during your Adelaide experience. It runs with a small group maximum of 10 people (average four).
