From tomorrow, for the second time ever in the entire history of the whole wide world (wowsers!), the iconic Adelaide Central Market will be shimmying into it’s prettiest apron, shining up its apples and opening wide its doors for a week of foodie fanatic heaven. That’s right – it’s Market Week time!
Last year the inaugural Market Week was more popular than a stick of butter at a bread convention so it was really a no-brainer that the Market Boss’ (like mafia boss’ but with bananas instead of tommy-guns) decided to make this an annual event.
Running from Tuesday to Saturday, Market Week will offer up cooking classes and demonstrations, appreciation sessions and tastings, happy hours and pop-up entertainment including (but not limited to) the State Opera of South Australia.
Not enough to tempt you? What about over a tonne of free Adelaide Hills Pink Lady Apples? That’s right, a tonne! To be given out tomorrow to over a tonne of lucky market-going Adelaiadians!
Still not enough? How about thousands of beautiful spring flowers that will also be given away over the course of Market Week? Or the ‘Dude Food’ demo taking place in anticipation of Father’s Day? Or the children’s activities on the Saturday morning? Or even the Spring Market Party on the Friday night?
Whether you’re after amazingly fresh produce, some great entertainment, a good coffee, some hot tips for the kitchen, or whether you are just an avid people-watcher, Market Week at the Adelaide Central Markets is a little gastronomic gem that really shouldn’t be missed. Get on it Adelaide!
The Adelaide Central Markets are on Grote Street (like you didn’t already know).
Market Week starts tomorrow, Tuesday 2 September, and runs through until COB on Saturday 6 September. Check out the full program of events here.
