The Adelaide Central Market is a popular destination for school aged children to learn about fresh produce, multi-cultural cuisine and finance. Schools are welcome to visit the Market on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during open hours, for a self/school guided visit (all schools must complete the school visit form).
There are a number of great activities for your school to do as part of your visit to the Adelaide Central Market such as:
• Use worksheets from our Adelaide Central Market’s Brain Food program (see below) to assist with your visit, please view the ‘School Education Pack’ tab.
• Provide an allocated budget for each student to purchase a selected item from within the Market for a shared lunch. Victoria Square is within walking distance and provides a large space for you class to enjoy a shared lunch outside.
• Purchase fresh fruit and vegetables from within the Market to take back to school to recreate a yummy recipe from our website.
Please note school visits are limited to 120 students per group

Adelaide Central Market’s Brain Food
The Adelaide Central Market’s Brain Food program was designed to communicate to school aged children the importance of food, culture, sustainability and how this relates to the community in which they live. The Education Pack worksheets have been designed to complement the national curriculum and can be used as a teachers aid and includes education themes including Food Hygiene & Safety and Business Studies.
The documents are available to teachers in both ‘word’ and as PDF’s so that the content may be changed to suit their subject matter.
