May 7 Adelaide (Day223)

This morning’s stop is Adelaide and we had a choice of 3 OTE’s – Off Train Experiences. Our choice is the Central Market in downtown Adelaide, perusing the food stalls and enjoying a continental breakfast.

We were bussed to the Market and given a short history of it’s beginnings. Then we walked through the hustle and bustle of workers stocking the produce, cooks preparing meals, butchers, bakers, (no candle-stick makers), and shoppers.

Great sights and smells, and tastes! We had nibbles at several stalls; Turkish delight candies, fresh roasted nuts, wild foraged herbs, and honey, interspersed around a light breakfast and delicious coffee!

We had free time to wander around, pick up a few snack items and meander outside for a few minutes.

The Market is in a beautiful old building which is being expanded with a huge complex being built next to it.

Inside, we found a Lego model of the Market, complete with little Lego workers and shoppers!

We returned to the train for a wonderful lunch and exciting entertainment in the lounge car!

Drag Bingo! A great performance!
