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.
Please note there is no guarantee that Sprout director Callum Hann will take the class personally.

The sample items range from cheese, yoghurt, a piece of seasonal fruit and sweet treat. You can’t beat the Market trail for value these school holidays at only $7 plus booking fee, or $9 on the day). It is recommended that you book your place in advance as tickets are limited, however, when available, bookings will be accepted on the day (in Gouger St dining area).
