Rundle Mall (btw. King William and Pulteney sts.) is Adelaide's main shopping street. This pedestrian-only thoroughfare is home to the big names in fashion, but you'll also find stores along King William Road at Hyde Park; Glen Osmond Road at Eastwood is the place to go for designer seconds and clearance shops.

Adelaide's Central Markets (tel. 08/8203 7203), behind the Adelaide Hilton Hotel between Gouger and Grote streets, make up the largest produce market in the Southern Hemisphere. They're a good place to shop for vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, and the like, although the markets are worth popping into even if you're not looking for picnic fixings. Held in a warehouselike structure, they are open Tuesday from 7am to 5:30pm, Thursday from 9am to 5:30pm, Friday from 7am to 9pm, and Saturday from 7am to 3pm. Some stalls open on Wednesdays.

The renowned Jam Factory Craft and Design Centre, 19 Morphett St. (tel. 08/8410 0727), sells an excellent range of locally made ceramics, jewelry, glass, furniture, and metal items. You can also watch the craftspeople at work here.
