Little Market Chefs is back these school holidays! Here at the Adelaide Central Market we are passionate about starting from ground level and teaching the next generation how to prepare healthy, easy and tasty meals together with nutritional advice. Why? Because good health starts in the kitchen! All of the produce will be fresh from our stalls and the team from Sprout will ensure the classes are not only fun and interactive but have an educational focus too. Each class will include a small take away meal of the dish they prepare.

Please arrive 5 minutes prior to the class, located in Gouger St Dining area (next to Zuma Caffe).

The Market Trail is back due to popular demand!  The trail has been specially formulated for little foodies to learn more about the local and imported produce that the market has on offer.  Each little foodie will receive a market bag and map and visit each of the ten pit-stops to receive a sample item at each stop. The sample items range from cheese, yoghurt, a piece of seasonal fruit and sweet treat.  You can’t beat the Market trail for value and fun these school holidays!

It is recommended that you book your place in advance as tickets are limited, however (when available) bookings will be accepted on the day, just head to the Market Trail desk in the Gouger St dining area.  Please note some sample items may contain nuts and it is the parent or carer’s responsibility to check all items offered by stalls.
