Happy birthday to a world-class market

At Play Cultural Heart

From fine dining establishments, to cafes, food trucks and home crock-pots, the Adelaide Central Market has been fuelling the city’s cuisine scene for 150 years in 2019.

Home to a vibrant team of traders all passionate about their food specialities, the Market’s exceptional offering of locally-grown and internationally-sourced produce has played a big part in putting Adelaide on the radar of food lovers near and far.

Part of this iconic landmark’s ongoing success has been its ability to move with the times.

Look back to see how the Market’s produce has transformed over a century-and-a half to cater to changing South Australian tastes by booking a seat at: 150 Years of the Market: A Time Traveller’s Feast.

This Tasting Australia event on Sunday 14 April sees some of SA’s hottest chefs serve up a four-course, long-table menu inspired by the years 1869, 1919, 1969 and 2019. Costumes encouraged!
