On market days, the Central Market is a feast for the senses. I usually go on a Saturday morning, getting some fresh bread and cheese for breakfast and sitting at one of the numerous cafes with a cup of tea/ coffee. If you fancy something different, pop into one of the many asian cafes for a warm bowl of noodle. Then it's time for a long, leisurely browse through the gourmet shops, kangaroo butcher, seafood shops and all the wonderful fruit and veg shops with their delicious produce. Gouger St is filled with cafes, restuarants and shops that will appeal to any epicure, and you can't miss the Asian shops in Chinatown (just beside the market: it is unmissable) for a browse through the interesting things Asians eat.
Once you've seen enough, you can head to the hawkers corner and marvel at the Asian food on offer. Try your hand at using chopsticks (remember, noodles are for experts only, especially if they are in a bowl of soup) or order up some exotic Asian dish you've never tried. Alternatively, head for something familliar down Gouger Street, where you get a selection of Asian eateries mixed with Italian, Argentinian, French and Aussie cuisine. Whatever you choose, have a ball!
You can get to Central Market on the free City Loop (99C)from anywhere in the city or walk towards Hilton Adelaide from the tram stop in Victoria Square. It's also a 15 minute walk from Rundle Mall, just ask for directions ot use a map. Enjoy!
