I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

The Unley Community Market is a free event on Saturday October 10 at the Unley Uniting Church, across from the Unley Soldiers Memorial Gardens and the Unley Shopping Centre.
This charity event is a popular family market with a wide range of market stalls selling all the goodies that you expect to find at markets in Adelaide. Beautiful hand made jewellery, retro vintage clothing, handy homewares, children's toys, fresh artisan foods and other hard to find bric-a-brac will tempt you to part with a few dollars to support a good cause. With Christmas rushing closer it's a good chance to buy some early presents for family and friends too.
Find the Market Stalls Across From the Soldiers Memorial Gardens
After browsing the market stalls you will need to keep your purse handy - deliciously spicy smells wafting from a BBQ will entice visitors to this charity market, unless you have already sat down for a Devonshire tea. I will be passing up these pleasures though, because the Unley Community Market will be showcasing South Sudanese food - something I've been eager to try for a while.
The Unley Community Market is being hosted by the non profit organisation Pan South Sudan to raise money for building a school and orphanage in Warrap State, South Sudan. There are thousands of orphans in South Sudan who have little chance of receiving an education and this is your chance to help them. It always makes me feel better when my retail therapy is contributing to a good cause.
Unley Community Market runs from 10am until 2pm on Saturday October 10, and is being supported by the City of Unley. Come along and cruise the market stalls, grab some food, and absorb some of the south Sudanese culture while you help people who grew up without the lucky breaks that we enjoy.
