Adelaide Central Market

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

All holiday activities are free or low cost and include the ever popular Market Trail, Little Market Chefs plus FREE art and craft workshops on Friday mornings (1 & 8 October). Be sure to try the Market Trail, where each little foodie will receive a market bag and map to guide them to 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 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.

If you have a little chef in the house you may wish to try Little Market Chefs, cooking classes by Sprout for kids aged between 6 and 12 years. All of the produce will be fresh from Market stalls and the classes will be fun, interactive and each class will include a small take away meal of the dish they prepare. Bookings essential.
