Market Birthday – Celebrating 149 Years of People & Produce | 3 Feb 2018

Adelaide Central Market Birthday – Celebrating 149 Years of People & Produce

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…

You’re invited to help the Adelaide Central Market celebrate 149 years of people and produce at their birthday party on Saturday 3 February 2018.  There will be free family activities including a cooking demonstration, live music, face painting and cupcake decorating.

And it’s a birthday, so there will be presents! Six lucky Market customers will win the opportunity to grab for Market and stall vouchers in their cash booth! Stay tuned on their Facebook page to hear how you can be one of their lucky winners.

It’s going to be a fun-filled day celebrating 149 years and it’s a chance to thank the loyal Market community.

Bring your friends.

Bring your family.

See you at the Market Birthday Party!
