Adelaide Shopping

Adelaide Brickwork Markets

The Brickwork Markets as they are now, opened in 1983 on the site of the old Hallett Brickworks. The markets are centred around the historic Hoffman Kiln which was built in 1912 and named after its German designer. The Hallett Company built the Hoffman Down Draught or "Bee Hive" Kiln, and it was the first of its kind in South Australia.

Set on a sprawling 6 hectare site with over 130 stalls, the Brickwork Markets are a must see on your trip to Adelaide and surrounding regions. The main building is air conditioned and has a huge variety of goods for sale. Clothing, shoes, hardware, home wares, leather goods, bric-a-brac, souvenirs, pictures, carpets, arts and crafts, are just a small selection of what is available.

The main building also has a food hall with a large array of food and beverages on sale. The area around the old kiln itself has a great selection of coins and collectables, books, memorabilia and more on display and for sale. The area outside and around the main building is called the Plaza and has a variety of casual day traders offering more food stalls, bakery, pet shop, clothing, picture frames and their famous lollipop shop with a huge selection of sweets, lollies and treats to tempt you!

Entertainment is provided for the kids and adults alike from live music, buskers, pony rides and more. A great day out to find that something special and to learn a little bit about one of South Australia’s most famous pieces of early industrial history.
