Adelaide’s cosmopolitan market
The multicultural character of South Australia comes into sharp focus at the Adelaide Central Market, whose stallholders — all independent vendors — represent heritages from diverse countries in Asia as well as Eastern and Western Europe. Mark Gleeson, who recently sold his 120-seat beachside restaurant to concentrate on his gourmet retail outlet and his food tourism business, leads guided tours of the market. Open just four days per week, it is said to attract somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.4 million visitors a month. Of the market today, Gleeson says, "the atmosphere is incredible, like being in someone’s giant house with everybody busy preparing for a huge meal ... all ages, all cultural communities, all cuisines ... the smell of roasting coffee ... wafts of bacon crisping on a grill ... the sweet tropical aroma of mangoes ... peaches ... apricots ... fresh basil and fresh mint straight from the market garden." As Australia eases into fall, while the Northern hemisphere awaits spring, Gleeson looks forward to the season’s first apples, which usually arrive at the market within two to three days of being picked.
