Fight those chocolate cravings and resist the call of fried chicken! The new season is the perfect time to pick up beautiful fresh produce - your body will thank you.
Adelaide Central Market is the best place to find an array of colourful foods, fresh from the farm. We’ve compiled a guide to some of our favourite stalls and shops in the market and Central Market Arcade to help you take a fresh approach to the kitchen.
Goodies & Grains
This golden oldie is the perfect place for all your wholefood needs. Goodies & Grains has been a beloved provider of healthy options in the market since the early 90s. They have over 5,000 products on offer, ranging from nuts and dried fruit, to kimchi and vegan cream cheese. Chat with the friendly chat with staff for some healthy recipes and pick up a tub of the most delicious peanut butter in town! Not only is it organic but you can also pour it yourself like a soft serve ice-cream machine. Neat right?
