Urban Art at Adelaide Central Market

Adelaide’s Central Market has long been a centre for the bustle of life in the city. Five days a week, the Market is flooded with people darting from stall to stall to stock their trolleys and baskets with South Australia’s beautiful fruits and vegetables, cheeses, nuts, breads, pastries, dips, olives, sweets, meat and fish. Traders call out their specials, their voices booming over the bubble of chatter and bargaining of customers. On weekdays, the city’s workers descend upon the Market’s cafés, enlivening a day at the office with the fragrances, sounds and tumbling fresh colours of the place that has earned its spot at the heart of South Australia’s famous world of gastronomy.

It is appropriate then that the market, as an epicentre for urban activity, has recently become a focus for Adelaide’s burgeoning urban art scene. The market’s internal brick walls have turned canvas, providing a platform for street artists to add a vibrant layer of contemporary colour to the building, which has been home to the markets since 1900.
