Big Market Adventures for Little Foodies | School Holidays at the Adelaide Central Market

School Holiday FUN with Big Market Adventures for Little Foodies.

Big Market Adventures for Little Foodies is back at the Adelaide Central Market during the April school holidays!

All school holiday activities are free or low cost and include the ever popular Market Trail and Little Market Chefs.  Activities are held over both weeks of the school holidays and it is recommended that you book your place in advance as tickets are limited, however (when available) bookings will be accepted on the day.

Little Market Chefs (6-12 year olds)

$20 per child (bookings essential)

At the Adelaide Central Market they 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 their 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).

Market Trail (all ages)

$16 per child (bookings recommended)

The Market 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!.

The Market Trail is self-guided any time between 9am – 12pm or 2pm – 4pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays during the school holidays.  Please note the Market Trail is not a suitable activity for organised groups of more than 10 children or Vacation Care groups.

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 Stall (next to the new Haighs on Gouger Street).

Please note some sample items may contain nuts and it is the parent or carer’s responsibility to check all items offered by stalls.

*Limited tickets available to purchase on the day
