  • It is, of course, my opinion that the ACM is the best, as we have been going there each week for 30 years. There is a wide variety of fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, small goods, great pasta, breads...  more »

  • Great place to spend a couple of hours wandering up and down the aisles. Try some gin from Kangaroo Island Stall. There are plenty of fresh fruit and veg stalls, cheese stalls, bakeries, meats and drinks and pretty much everything else you can think of. Would say it's slightly better than Melbourne's Victoria Market, everyone seems more friendly and there's a more relaxed atmosphere.
  • Had a great time at the markets! There is so much gourmet food at reasonable prices. I went in the afternoon and there was not a big crowd. Was great I can't wait to come back!
  • One of my favourite places in South Australia, and my favourite fresh produce market in the country. I love to shop here, and I frequently stroll through for the atmosphere and buzz. There hasn’t been an ingredient I haven’t been able to find here. Well worth speaking to the friendly vendors for their advice and suggestions - there is a wealth of knowledge under this roof.
  • This Market is absolutely my favorite place in Adelaide, when you enter you have immediately a good feeling. You can see smell taste the quality of the products. Definitely worth the visit if you are in town.
  • What a blast this place is! We had been told so much about it but that did not prepare us for the onslaught of sights and smells that we experienced . No matter what you are looking for in way of food you will find it here. The best blends of coffee beans, all types of cheese, every fruit and veg that you have ever heard of you will find here. Best of all though are all the exotic fruits and vegetables that you have NEVER heard of. They are bewildering in their variety. The best thing that we found was a stall with lots of indigenous foods. Just delicious!
