Whole Foods in the City at The Market on Holland


The latest market in Adelaide has hit the ground running - only a month after opening The Market Shed on Holland is packed with people on their Sunday market day in the city.

The market is set in a spacious old building formerly used by motor engineers, which has been transformed into a light and airy open space bustling with a farrago of fresh food and produce stalls. Located on Holland Street (behind the Gilbert Street IGA), it's accessible from both King William Street and Gilbert Street in Adelaide.

Certified Organic Fruit and Veg


There are many stalls from small producers, some cafes and even some live music - last week it was the Trio Montagne who had recently entertained visitors to the French Christmas Market. Like the Adelaide Central Market and the Myponga Market, the Market Shed on Holland is under cover, so you can still comfortably pick up your supplies even in unpleasant weather.

Spices From Beach Organics


After passing Grand Flowers's colourful rustic display the certified organic fruit and veg stall beckons, brimming with wholesome produce. For cooking condiments check out Beach Organics where you can buy bulk spices and even dried hibiscus flowers. Fresh fish from Kangaroo Island, Raw Life organic sweets, Live a Little artisan gelato, and an eye catching range of goodies from Bona Food all competed for my attention.

Organic Produce From the Coffee Pedlar


A short walk brings you to The Coffee Pedlar (organic ingredients only) whose peppermint hot chocolate sounds like a wonderful fix for anyone feeling a little jaded the morning after. If tea is more your thing, then Stu at The Tea Catcher will be able to fix you with a range of exciting teas sourced from around Asia, together with the wares to drink it in.

Nearby is the winning combination of Battle of Bosworth Wines from McLaren Vale next door to Woodside Cheese Wrights. I love the drive out to Woodside along the Onkaparinga Scenic Drive, but it's so very convenient to taste their produce at The Market Shed on Holland.

Little Orange Arancini & Pizza Bar


When looking for brunch at the market you really are spoilt for choice - the Little Orange Arancini & Pizza Bar will tempt you with their arancini and organic polenta chips.

The Walnut Bar for Nut Cheese


For something more traditional Aussie style (but with a twist), try a dairy free burger and salad from the Walnut Bar, Adelaide's first nut milk bar - they even do a nut cheese.

My stomach was rumbling by the time I passed the Organic Breakfast & Coffee bar, and I was sorely tempted by the organic egg and bacon toastie served on sourdough with tomato relish and greens. Seriously there has to be something for everyone's appetite on offer here.

The little ones haven't been forgotten either, with face painting fun for the kids for $3. No harm in keeping the kids happy if you're planning to browse for a while.

There were so many stalls at The Market Shed on Holland that I haven't covered them all due to lack of space. Just take a wander down on Sunday between 9am and 2pm and check it out for yourself. Parking is pretty easy to find in the area, so it's a good way to pass the morning.

Love this market, my new fave breakfast spot. A waffle from Live a Little is the best way to start a Sunday!
