On the 23rd of January, 1869, a small group of market gardeners set up shop between Gouger Street and Grote Street, protesting the awful trading standards of the East End produce markets. They must have done well for themselves that day, because they still stand there, as the Adelaide Central Markets.
This coming Saturday the 28th, the ACM will be celebrating a milestone like no other, a birthday in celebration of 148 years of business excellence. Proprietors and stalls have come and gone, but the ACM has always stood as a direct connection to local Adelaide farmers. ACM invites you to share in that connection and join them for a big birthday bash! There will be FREE activities galore, such as face painting, games, live music and a cooking demo by Jessie Spiby, everyone's favourite local Masterchef contestant.
Local trader Dough have come through with the goods and set us up with a gigantic cake just for the celebrations. Once Deputy Lord Mayor Megan Hender has sliced it all up for us, chuck a coin in the tin for a slice of your own. Every slice you buy directly benefits OzHarvest, a local charity delivering meals to the less fortunate, so go nuts. Be sure to rustle a few more coins together and join the many competitions open throughout the market, there's an absolute ton of prizes waiting for you to win.
An old-hat market gardener who goes every weekend to suss the great deals? A first timer who wants to see what all the fuss is about? This Saturday will be the perfect time to check it all out. Get yourselves in early, the crowds are gonna be gnarly!
