If you are looking for somewhere to take the family on the weekend then the Adelaide Central Market is just what you are looking for. There are plenty of stalls selling all sorts of colourful objects for people to buy and admire as they search for a gift or keep sake to remember their day out.
There is always something to sample if you are feeling adventurous and willing to try them. Jewelry lovers will appreciate the detail in the different pieces as they sparkle before their eyes. The markets will provide people with various cultural experiences as they hear South American music playing in the distance as they try on Chinese clothing whenever they wish.
Adelaide's Central Market is smaller than other markets in Australia; however, it has a warm atmosphere as it embraces everyone who participates in the fun and excitement it offers them. While there are eateries to feed hungry mouths there is not enough variety to satisfy hungry eaters as well as people with special dietary requirements. If you wish to save money you can either eat at home or enjoy a light pre-prepared meal as you sit down and watch the world go by.
The markets are within walking distance from the city centre as well as public transport. Buses will take you to your destination quickly and easily, which is ideal if you have little time to spare. It is a fun place to visit on wet days as children can explore the narrow paths all afternoon.
