Sample the Bush Tukka

Central Market Food Tour


It’s known as the best food market in the country, a one-stop destination to sample and procure the freshest South Australian cuisine. Although the Adelaide Central Market is not so big as to be unmanageable, a friendly and knowledgeable local guide can quickly leads you to its many highlights, with opportunities to taste world-class cheeses, ice-cream, produce, seafood, meats, and best of all, local indigenous bush tukka. Bring a bag to stock up on treats.

Note from Robin :
Since we're obsessed with unique experiences, don't miss Something Wild, Australia’s first national indigenous native greens and game wholesaler. In the display case are cuts of fresh kangaroo, camel, crocodile, emu, open range boar, magpie goose and venison. Heck, there’s even a sampler kebab for sale, with duck thrown in for good measure. You can ask for a sampler plate, and taste the wild flavours of the green ants.
