After a long night on the Barossa reds you may feel 150 years old. But make the effort. This Adelaide institution has been around just as long and blasts away morning-after malaise better than a Berocca and a lie-in. Shouty vendors will sell you a glowing tangerine or a fancy banana from more than 70 stalls with the freshest fruit and veges. Nibble unctuous Brie, sweet balsamic figs or a stick of spicy cabana while you stock up on fresh kataifi from the Providore. Embrace the laminex aesthetic at Asian Gourmet for the alpha and omega of laksas and watch the world forage. Grab a seat at Lucia’s or Zuma or Big Table for exceptional coffee and a gourmet fry-up. Walk and wonder with Sunmi’s spring onion pancakes, or half a dozen fresh local oysters from Angelakis. Open every Tuesday through to Saturday, Adelaide Central Market is an earlybird feast for every sense. They even do a two-hour Breakfast Tour that'll show you all the good stuff.
