Tastes of Adelaide

Even Australians diss Adelaide, but in fact this little city of about 1 million boasts a chic food-and-wine scene.

The center of it all: The century-plus old Adelaide Central Market, where 1.4 million come each month to buy organic foods, fresh produce, specialty sauces, seafood, dozens of types of coffees and teas, juicy meats...About 90 percent of it comes from farms within 100 miles, says Mark Gleeson, who offers a terrific market tour.

Word to the wise: Don't plan a big dinner after the tour. You'll be full.
