Dear Market customers

There has been a lot of media coverage regarding the banning of non-essential, organised public gatherings across Australia. This ban, will not impact usual Market trading at this stage and the Market will continue to trade as normal until such advice is issued.

We are liaising with relevant authorities and will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide regular updates to ensure we do all we reasonably can to protect the health and safety of our Market community. The Central Market Arcade is currently taking advice from the relevant authorities and City of Adelaide about the risks held for our Market community and the potential impact upon Market operations in the coming months.

The Central Market Arcade is implementing the following measures in response to COVID-19:

  • In addition to existing full-time on-site cleaners, the frequency and intensity of cleansing throughout the arcade have been increased, with a priority focus on common touchpoints. Cleansing processes include antibacterial, antimicrobial cleaning agents that reduce the risk of viruses. Additional handwashing and personal hygiene signage have been implemented in all bathrooms.

  • Securely installed hand sanitisers have been made available within the Arcade.

  • The installation of Federal Government developed signage promoting “Simple steps to stop the spread” across the Arcade and within traders’ stores.

  • Working with traders who utilise outdoor dining settings to implement ‘social distancing’ layouts, which will be regularly monitored by our onsite security.

  • Our website and Facebook page will be used to communicate updates or changes to our operations as promptly as possible with the Market Community.

To prioritise the health and safety of the Market Community, our weekly free activities and entertainment events have been postponed until further notice.

For further information on all COVID-19 matters, please visit the Federal Department of Health. Their comprehensive website provides the most up-to-date and relevant information available. Information regarding the Adelaide Central Markets response can be found on their website.


Given this unprecedented situation, we ask our supportive Market Community to continue to visit the Central Market Arcade and the Adelaide Central Markets to support our traders, their families and the suppliers who rely on your patronage.
