Sunday essentials at the Central Market


Posted on 16 Mar 2020

The iconic Adelaide Central Market is now open on Sundays, with a range of traders open 8 am to 3 pm, giving us more time to celebrate the riches of South Australian produce.

We’ve taken the list of stalls who’ve chosen to open and broken it down into bite sized pieces. Plan your perfect Sunday with these seven essential stops in the city’s cornucopia.

Begin with a brew

Arabica-dabra. There is undeniable magic in a well-made cup of coffee. Pop by and grab an expertly make cup from one of the stellar cafes to get your bearings before exploring.

    Sunday brew stops:
    • The Coffee Bean Shop
    • Teaser
    • Zuma Caffe

    Sort your staples

    Bread, milk and cheese is far from being a bland base when you shop local. It’s hard not to be excited when choosing from the array of rich cheeses, creamy milks and crusty loaves. You can’t go wrong and a little goes a long way when your staples are delicious just on their own.

    Sunday staple stops:
    • The Smelly Cheese Shop
    • The Market Bread Bar
    • Fleurieu Milk Co.

    Grab your greens

    Fill your market basket with the treasures of South Australia’s best farms. Transform your week’s meals into occasions to anticipate with crisp apples, lush lettuce and vibrant root vegetables.

    Sunday produce stops:
    • House of Organics
    • Rommy’s Market Garden
    • Fred McMahon’s
    • Seven Brothers
    • M&M’s Fruit Mart

    Relax over lunch

    Refuel and recalculate over a well-deserved lunch. Never shop when hungry unless you’re prepared to accidentally purchase 300 packets of chips. 

    Sunday meal stops:
    • Real Falafel
    • Le Souk
    • Simply Sarj
    • Cumbia Bar Kitchen

    Pick proteins and specialty items

    From pasta to pickles to prosciutto, we’re fortunate that the best specialty items from across the world can be found mere metres from one another. For those partial to a meal of fish or steak, you can pick up ingredients that are locally sourced and ethically fished and farmed.

    Sunday smallgoods and specialty stops:
    • Marino Meat and Food Store
    • Barossa Fine Foods
    • Con’s Fine Foods
    • Standom Smallgoods
    • Samtass Seafood Bros

    Select something to savour

    There’s always a point after a big shopping sesh that you need a me-moment. Plan ahead and pick yourself up something nice to pat yourself on the back. Chocolate peanuts? Gin? A new camera? Never hurts to have another hobby.

    Sunday special stops:
    • Photoco Camera House
    • Charlesworth Nuts
    • The Kangaroo Island Stall

    End with a sweet treat

    You may have just treated yourself but it’s actually against the rules to leave the market without eating something sweet. The toughest decision of your day must be made now… or avoid decision altogether and stock up your 3pm sugar rush rations.

    Sunday sweet stops:
    • The Old Lolly Shop
    • Les Deux Coqs
    • The Turkish Delight Mediterranean Sweetery

    Each stall has unique offerings and may even fit across many of the 'stops' we've listed here so be sure to check each of them out.
