Due for release in time for its 150th anniversary celebrations in 2019, Adelaide Central Market Stories, People & Recipes will tell the stories and share the memories of former traders and the familiar faces who make the Market the buzzing place it is today.
Readers will also be treated to 136 delicious seasonal recipes from the market’s passionate stallholders including Lucia’s iconic minestrone, Comida’s famous paella and Asian Gourmet’s laksa.
Written by Katie Spain and Fiona Roberts, the recipes in Adelaide Central Market Stories also feature family favourites from local and regional producers, along with market-inspired offerings from some of SA’s favourite chefs Maggie Beer, Adam Liaw and Simon Bryant, just to name a few.
