Food District

Adelaide’s famous food market and Chinatown precinct is a must visit, located a comfortable walk through the city’s heart or short tram ride from the Centre.

One of the largest undercover fresh produce markets in the Southern Hemisphere, the Adelaide Central Market is an experience in itself, a buzzing foodie paradise with over 70 traders under one roof.
