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

The Adelaide Night Market is one of the most successful markets in Adelaide, filling a void on Sunday night when it's too nice outside to be stuck at home watching television.

Magnificent Carclew House is Holding Craft Markets in Adelaide


On Tuesday December 9 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.

Is Carclew House Haunted? Maybe Not.


You're guaranteed a diverse selection of charming market stalls. Last year there were artisan goods from the JamFactory, hand printed 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 made 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 and to amuse you and the kids. Popular local singers Banjo Jackson and Delia Obst will be the first to serenade you on your arrival to historic Carclew mansion.

Enjoy La Chiva South American Street Food


But how can we do our Christmas shopping without Christmas carols, sung by a real choir - Choral Grief? It will 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.

VW Bars Serve All Popular Cocktails


So far La Chiva South American street food and Delectaballs are definitely on the menu, but don't be surprised if newcomer Bon Jing Filipino street food is one of the many others teasing you with their cooking smells.

The VW Bars will be able to satisfy any thirst, but go carefully with their cocktails if you're driving. There will great coffee on offer too, and perfect pastries for sweet minded people.
