The Smelly Cheese Shop remains open during this time, operating within our own and the Adelaide Central Market's Covid Safe Plan. Click and collect orders as well as delivery via our online shop and the Market's online shop are also available. 

The Smelly Cheese Shop was founded in the Adelaide Central Market, South Australia, in 2001 with the vision to source cheeses that the Public may never have had access to before. Our Director Valerie Henbest was born in Normandy, France and brought with her a love for traditional and artisanal cheeses when she moved to Australia over 20 years ago. By developing and cultivating long standing business relationships with small to medium producers from Australia and all over the world, Valerie has ensured The Smelly Cheese Shop boasts cheeses that are fairly unique in Australia or anywhere else in the world. 

The shop has become synonymous with cheese culture in Adelaide. A visit to the Market without stopping by the Smelly Cheese Shop is just not complete. Our store is open five days a week, from Tuesday to Saturday. For the full list of opening hours and click and collect options please see below. Online orders are available to be placed 24 hours a day, seven days a week with an estimated 48 hour delivery window. Visit the store on a Friday or Saturday to taste a selection of cheeses, and keep an eye on our Social Media to know what events the store has upcoming. 

Visit the Shop to discuss your cheese needs and our small but knowledgeable and dedicated staff will be pleased to lead you to the cheeses you have dreamed of, but also cheeses that will become your new favourites. The selection of small batch crackers, pastes and accompaniments are carefully curated to add to your cheese experience. No need to pre-order, just pop in and see how we can help you to enjoy your cheeses to their most!
