The Adelaide Central Market has become a favourite weekend activity for many of our international students. They can meet their friends, enjoy their favourite food from home and pick up treats for the week. Where the market is also an ideal place for students to learn about the food culture in Australia, it is also an excellent for students to go shopping with their homestays to buy ingredients to cook their favourite meal from their home country together.
