What you'll do

My 45 Minute Market orientation tour is a walk through the 80 stalls of the indoor Adelaide Central Market, giving you my shortcut 'A' list to the Central Market and beyond.
My tour takes you on a Central Market Snapshot gourmet experience, visiting my favourite stalls to try delicious tastings that represent the best foods grown and produced in South Australia.
The Market is a multicultural culinary hotspot that takes years to learn properly, so if time is short and you are planning to cook a meal or just find some delicious appetisers, gifts or eat me now treats, this is the tour for you.
From artisan cheeses, quirky Australian native foods, smallgoods, fresh seasonal fruits, nuts, and dairy - there really is something for everything, our tastings change every day based on what is in season. For fellow foodies with special dietary requirements, we've got you covered.
It is a great shopping opportunity to learn from a local, and I will give you my tips on new and famous restaurants to visit, trendy bars and fun things to do round town.
Shop where the chefs shop, and fastback yourself to become a local!
Other things to note

Hi, my name is Cheryl, your host through the Adelaide Central Market. I'm a Mum of two older kids and have shopped in the market for more than 30 years. It's my second home and I'm still learning the secrets of the Central Market. I read, I cook, I eat at restaurants (too much) and I love having family and friends over to dinner to test my culinary skills. The shopkeepers and local chefs in the market are now my friends. I love discovering their new and latest products and that usually involves tasting and giving feedback to them. I love people, food, family, small business and great wine.

If you really want to discover the Adelaide's foodie scene, do this tour. Cheryl has not only very deep knowledge about the Central Market but also a lot of suggestions about Restaurants in Adelaide.

I had an amazing time with Cheryl. She was friendly and knowledgeable. She started her tour with a brief explanation of the Market including history of Adelaide, which helped me understand the background of the Market. She brought me over 10 shops and gave me detail information of the shops. She spoke to every shop staff like a friend so I felt easy during the whole tour. I could taste some food at some shops and I happily got full. I highly recommend this tour! Thank you, Cheryl.
