All visitors to Adelaide should visit the Adelaide markets.
They are accessible in the city centre but there is parking which always seems to have a spare parking spot.
We arrived with a plan. Lunch first.
We usually would go to the stalls selling such good Asian food you could be in Asia. Today we opted for Jamface. It’s owned and run by Poh, made famous by Masterchef years ago.
She has built a lovely little cafe/ restaurant in the middle of the markets. I thought it might have an Asian influence but it fresh modern food. Sandwiches, salads etc. all delicious.
From lunch we went to the ‘Shroom’. Yes the mushroom shop. We got a kilo for $6. A bargain.
Then the Smelly Cheese Shop. The owners have built quite a profile having cheese tastings and events such as ‘Le Salon’. An event for the Adelaide Festival where you sit eating cheese , drinking champagne and listening to a French composers. Voila!
We tasted a few delicious cheeses but alas no champagne.
Then it was the sea food market for tonight’s dinner.
Finally the fruit and veggies. So many stalls, great prices and beautiful colours.
When in Adelaide you must go there.
A quick trip home to drop off our goodies then off to the lovely King William Street village.
Lots of lovely shops, boutiques, cafes, beauty salons, bookshops, wine bars, flower shops and healthy food shops!
We spent the afternoon browsing and didn’t need to spend a cent to have a few hours fun.
