Celebrating 150 Years of the Adelaide Central Market
Help the Adelaide Central Market celebrate 150 years of stories, people and recipes at their birthday party on Saturday 2 February 2019.
On Saturday 23 January 1869 at 3.15am a group of Market gardeners, unhappy with trading conditions at the East End, paraded through city streets to the site between Gouger and Grote Street to sell their produce. Over 500 customers attended and all stock was sold out by 6am.
And the rest, as they say is history…
On Saturday 2 February 2019 there will be free family activities including a cooking demonstration, live music, face painting and cupcake decorating. You can also purchase a copy of their new book Adelaide Central Market: Stories, People & Recipes and get it signed by authors Katie Spain and Fiona Roberts.
And it’s a birthday, so there will be cake and presents! 5 lucky Market customers will be given the opportunity to win Market vouchers and prizes in the cash grabber. Stay tuned on the Market’s Facebook page for your chance grab.
The giant birthday cake will be served at 10am for a gold coin donation with proceeds going to OzHarvest.
It’s going to be a fun-filled day celebrating our 150 years, and it’s the Market’s chance to thank their loyal Market community. Bring your friends. Bring your family.
