The Traveller recently recognised the Adelaide Central Markets as one of the world’s 10 best food markets, featured alongisde international destinations including Shilin Night Markets in Taiwan and the Egyptian Bazaar in the heart of Turkey.
“If you want to wrap your tongue around some great local food, here’s where to go when hunger calls.”
With over 200 stalls, Adelaide Central Market is the largest fresh-produce market in Australia and a wonderful microcosm of its multicultural mix.
The fishmonger is Greek, the grocers Italian, the noodle-stand owner Malaysians, the fruiters Chinese and Vietnamese. Poke, sniff and nibble through a dozen deli counters, then kick back at one of the cafés: the coffee is the best in the city.
