With a nice and early 8 am start, you’ll meet your friendly guide and fellow food lovers at the Down escalator – located in front of the ‘Say Cheese’ stall, in the central part of Adelaide's Central Market. Walking along to one of the iconic store holders – Lucia’s Café – you’ll indulge in a light but mouth-watering breakfast, which will whet your appetite for the joys to come.
Walking through this amazing market place, you’ll get to experience its lively and exciting atmosphere using all of your senses – hear the crowds as people haggle for the best bargain and chat to their fellow stallholders. See the bright colours of the produce. Feel the smooth baby skin-like softness of a ripe, organic peach or the slimy grip of an octopus’s tentacle. Smell the delicious aroma from a juicy mango or the divine, memory-inducing scent of a fresh loaf of bread. Taste… There’s so much to taste that your taste buds will be in a heady rapture of goodness at the amazing range of flavours you’ll experience!
Linger at the spectacular wares from locally loved café’s, including the famous Providore. Along the way, you’ll sample some of these amazing wares, tasting wholesome roasted nuts, aromatic coffee beans, unbelievably fresh fruits and vegetables, tangy yoghurts and meat products bursting with flavour. The best part is the sample sizes, which are extremely generous, allowing you to keep some to take home and indulge in later.
Just before the tour ends, you’ll also get to taste some of the absolute best chocolates in the whole of Adelaide! If by this stage of the tour, you don’t have a smile on your face, then there’s something very wrong with your taste buds!
