Certainly not on the regular tourist circuit, this market is tucked away in the middle of no-where - though an industrial wasteland though only 30mins from Adelaide CBD. Its relative isolation means it is authentic, local and as such the place to go. A word of warning though – there are no stuffed kangaroos, cuddly koalas, gaudy boomerangs or other tacky tourist paraphernalia here (not that readers of VT would be seeking anything tacky!).
This local growers open air market, located on the banks of the Port River, is a combined fruit and vegetable market and fish market of around 40 stalls of the former and a half dozen of the latter though the volume of seafood on sale does vary with the season and the time of day. The seafood is sold on a small floating jetty where the fishing boats moor. You wont find fresher than this – even the pelicans waiting in the water by the jetty know this!
Nice fresh bread and other bakery produce, olives, oils and eggs are also available. While you can get a coffee – you drink it on the run – no seating area – though if it’s a nice day sit by the river.
Prices are very good here but quality does vary so pick your own and check carefully. You will notice great banter between the sellers and buyers - both of whom have been coming here for years.
Something different and worth the drive – a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday morning.
Opening hours: Sunday 6am to 1pm (Go earlier rather than later especially if you want to see the small seafood area in full swing).
No entrance fee.
Location note: Despite its name, the market is not actually on Torrens Island but has a view to the island (with its power station across the river. That said you do follow the signs for Torrens Island out of Port Adelaide and turn of to the left into Moorhouse Road before crossing onto the island. Around 5kms from Port Adelaide and 30 minutes from the Adelaide CBD.
(via The Grand Trunkway)
What to buy: Fresh Fruit and Veg and Seafood.

This is a souvenir that any young girl or even grown woman would like if she owned a "CHARM BRACELET."
If you are from overseas, why not buy a charm of one of our Aussie animals, a Boomerang, or one our sights, like the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
I know my daughter loved getting charms for her Bracelet!
It is something different, and something that will last until lost.
These can be bought at Jewellery stores, or at THE CHARM SHOP in the City Cross arcade , Rundle Mall.
They come in silver, 9ct, 14ct & 18ct gold. You can check them out on their website listed below.

We stopped in at the Cosmic Page one cold and rainy morning. It was still early and not many shops were yet open. We were escaping the weather more than we were shopping...at least at first.
Cosmic Page turned out to be one of those mind/body/spirit stores than just relaxes you. Everything is warm and welcoming, the incense is perfect, there's the sound of water gardens and such, little tinkling bells and mobiles... you get the idea. And, they had a huge selection of interesting books and titles, too. (....some of which I didn't want my 16 year old daughter examining TOO closely :)
I ::did:: see a nice "kama sutra" title that would be a perfect gift for the love of one's life. ; )
What to buy: There's an incredible selection of high quality incense for sale. Also, there's all sorts of little crystal and china items (what we Americans call knick-knacks) of interest.
And first and foremost, Cosmic Page is a bookstore, with a heavy emphasis on mind/body/spirit titles.
Among the things they list on their promotional bookmarks are:
SPIRITUAL TRADITIONS YOGA/MEDITATION HEALTH AND HEALING
PERSONAL GROWTH ASTROLOGY PSYCHOLOGY
ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS PHILOSOPHY SELF-REALIZATION
REINCARNATION COMPARATIVE RELIGIONS
Then, there's the "dream power seminars", the "astrological consultations" .... just about any touchy-feely thing you could imagine. For a moment, I thought I was in California.
What to pay: Oh, the prices vary widely of course. You'll find that all items are fairly and reasonably priced.

The Botanical shop in the Adelaide gardens is a small affair selling garden trinkets, cards, books, gifts and souvenirs. There is also an extensive array of books on gardening and plant books. Its a nice store to spend some time browsing in.

These marketsare unique as they are found in one of the historic warehouses along the wharf at Port Adelaide. These wharfs are still used during the week, and on the weekends it becomes alive with tourists and travellers looking for something different.
There are two levels holding 150 stalls, ranging from bizaare clothing to old vinyl LPs. If its tools that the men are after, then this is the place to find it.
There are many places to eat, including the many pubs that one would find at Port Adelaide.
While you are there, climb the Port Adelaide lighthouse, which is located right next to the market entrance.

I don't know much about the northern suburbs, but I can tell you three places I go - Jetty Road, in Glenelg, by the beach. Rundle Mall, a pedestrian street, in the city centre. Marion, aka Westfield Shopping Centre, an indoor mall building.
Of the three, Jetty Road is the least effective for serious shopping; it's mostly smaller stores, not so good for clothes shopping, and it's more popular because it's near the beach than because the shopping is sensational. Marion is popular as it also has a large movie theatre and a few other fun things (bowling, video games). Rundle Mall has the virtues of both - it's outside and fairly pleasant to walk down, like Jetty Road, and it has quite a lot of stores, including large department stores, like Marion.
What to buy: Are there any special items to be acquired in Adelaide? Adelaide's shopping isn't that great - I mean, the prices are reasonable but there's nothing you *must* buy in Adelaide that you can't get somewhere else for a similar price.
What to pay: It depends where you go. Even on just one street, like Rundle Mall, there's a lot of variety - you could pay AU$150 for a top in one store and AU$10 for a similar top in a nearby store. It all depends on what store it is, whether there are sales... I, personally, tend to pay between $3 and $40 for my items of clothing and shoes, but then I'm a cheapskate and would never dream of shopping in one of the pricey places. ^_^.
