People just love markets in Adelaide, and a market offering great food goes down even better. Hold it in the cool of a summer evening and it suddenly enters a new almost magical dimension of excitement and fun things to do in Adelaide.

When a market is held in the grounds of a spectacularly beautiful heritage listed grand mansion, who can resist the impulse to shop there for Christmas gifts?

Is Gothic Mansion Carclew House Haunted?


On Thursday December 7 the absolutely awesome gothic styled Carclew mansion in North Adelaide is holding its annual Carclew Dusk Arts Market. The normally sedate and beautiful Carclew house grounds and the forbidding Carclew mansion will be transformed into bustling arts and craft markets in Adelaide's parklands. For just a few hours the delightful setting will be enhanced with lighting and colour to an almost fairy tale ambience.

Of course you, dear readers, will not notice that as you swarm through the gates in search of unique Christmas gifts, or even a present for yourself. South Australian artists and designers will have a heap of hand crafted goods on display - ornaments, items of furniture, jewellery, and other decorative knick knacks will all tempt you to part with some of your Christmas coin.

You're guaranteed a diverse selection of charming market stalls. In previous years there were artisan goods from the Jam Factory, hand made cards and zines from Union Street Print Makers, hand printed tees from Zefertiti, paintings from Nikki Carabetta, photographic cards, brooches and totes from The Analogue Laboratory, hand crafted jewellery from La Flaire Designs, hair accessories from Vouch Lim and Tina Hodder, candles from Wicked Willy's Wicks, and fine tea from the Tea Catcher.

It won't be hard work shopping at these unique markets in Adelaide's north - there will be plenty of fun things to do which will amuse you and the kids. Free live entertainment from popular local musicians will serenade you on your arrival to historic Carclew mansion.

Enjoy Street Food From Food Trucks


But can we do our Christmas shopping without Christmas carols, sung by a real choir? You will need to wait for the program to be announced to find out. It might be almost like the old days at David Jones, when a living choir serenaded shoppers while they waited for a lift. The repetitively looping tapes at Woolworths don't really create the same atmosphere.

Shopping and carolling can be a serious drain on one's energy, so you'll be relieved to know that some of the best food trucks in Adelaide will be waiting to tempt you with their unique take on street food. Why wait for the next Fork on the Road when you can snack on a range of foods from around the world - freshly made in Adelaide.

Grab a Drink at the Bar from Alpha Box and Dice


We can't tell you yet which Adelaide food trucks are on the menu, but there will be a few to choose from. The licensed bar by Alpha Box & Dice will be able to satisfy any thirst, but go carefully with their cocktails if you're driving. There will be great coffee on offer too, and perfect pastries for sweet minded people.
