On 15 September I joined a group of Brazilian students from the Science Without Borders program to visit the Adelaide Central Market – one of the most important attractions of the city. This visit was organised by UniSA in collaboration with TAFE.
I am here in Adelaide as part of a group of Brazilian students to study English and after that, to study at UniSA.
The Adelaide Central Market was created in 1869 and has been an excellent point of food and culture for over 145 years. It is the best place to find products of fresh food, for example fruit and vegetables, seafood, cheeses and others that are impressive quality and size.
During the visit, we were received by the General Manager, Aaron Brumby, who was very attentive and told us about the history of market and gave us some tips. On Saturday, for example, the market has promotions at lunch time which is excellent for students looking for the best prices.
After that, we won fruits to taste and a beautiful market bag which is very useful to make purchases.
I used the visit to walk around the market and know the stores. With over 80 traders under one roof, all the people that work in the central markets have a good attendance as well as good prices and excellent products.
Every year the market has more than 8.5 million visitors. I made my choice, so if you need make purchases, choose the Central Market! It is a mecca for international students because it has products for multicultural cuisine and fresh produce with the best quality.
