Fodor's Expert Review Central Market
One of the largest produce markets in the southern hemisphere, and Adelaide's pride and joy, the Central Market is chock-full of stellar local foods, including glistening-fresh fish, meat, crusty Vietnamese and Continental breads, German baked goods, cheeses of every shape and color, and old-fashioned lollies (candy). You can also buy souvenir T-shirts, CDs, books, cut flowers, and a great cup of coffee. The enthusiastic couple behind Adelaide's Top Food and Wine Tours (v26495377www.topfoodandwinetours.com.au) showcases Adelaide's food-and-wine lifestyle—as in the behind-the-scenes guided tour of the Central Market (A$55), which lets you meet stall holders, share their knowledge, and taste the wares. Tours are scheduled Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday at 9:30 am; reservations are essential.
