Adelaide’s Giant Father Christmas | Adelaide Central Market | Nov-Dec 2018

 Giant Father Christmas is back

Father Christmas is back in 2018 at Adelaide Central Market

The Market Tower on Grote Street is proud to be home to Australia’s largest Father Christmas for a fourth year in 2018.

Adelaide’s iconic giant Father Christmas, which had always graced the David Jones building in Rundle Mall, (and previously the old John Martins store) is back at the Adelaide Central Market for the 2018 festive season.  He was missing in 2014 and the Mall was sadly not quite the same without him.  The Market welcomed him in 2015 and Adelaide’s smiling, waving giant jolly Father Christmas has returned to the Adelaide Central Market family this month, located on their historic market tower.

While we know the Santa statue is more than 40 years old and was previously located in Rundle Mall, not much else is known about its origins.

Adelaide Central Market Authority Chair Nick Begakis is calling out for locals to share any details they may have by writing to or visiting the Market Office on Level 1, 44-60 Gouger St, Adelaide.

We are so glad to see him back on display for everyone to see as they drive through the city.  Be sure to check him out when you’re travelling along Grote Street or next time you shop at the Adelaide Central Market.
