From sightseeing to hidden gems, find out what makes the city unique with the help of the locals who know it best.
Farmers Market
“Savour South Australia’s rich bounty of produce – farm-fresh fruit and vegetables, artisan cheeses, smoked meats and seafood – at Adelaide Central Market. For more than 140 years, the undercover market has been the epicentre for Adelaide’s food scene. Start with coffee at Fair Espresso and freshly baked pastries at Dough. Sample the local cheeses at Say Cheese and hard-to-find international cheese at The Smelly Cheese Shop. Drop by Island Pure, which brings together more than 25 producers from Kangaroo Island, and stocks small-batch gin, flavoured oils, honey and sticky figs. To discover the best of the market, join Mark Gleeson’s early morning walking tour, during which you’ll enjoy generous tastings and meet the people behind the stalls.”
