In good news for foodies who always leave their produce shopping to a Sunday, Adelaide Central Market will begin trading on Sunday, starting this weekend.

The move is not in repsonse to the COVID-19 pandemic and its related food demand surges, but is part of a long-planned trial.

At this stage, trading on Sunday is only voluntary, although over 20 stallholders had confirmed that they will be opening up during the trial.

The market will be opening at 8am for the super keen and closing at 3pm, giving you a chance to get your food prep done on Sunday without too much forethought.

In line with social distancing protocols, Adelaide Central Market have removed common area seating, ramped up cleaning and installed several hand sanitisers stations.

The market is not subject to the Federal Government’s ban on non-essential gatherings of over 100 people as it is classified as an essential service.

Meanwhile, South Australian family-owned food distributor Galipo Foods has announced that they will begin a home delivery service for householders.


The new service called Galipo At Home will give people the chance to stock up on bulk food items without having to grapple with a supermarket.
