Little Foodies Central Market trail

    Recommended Posts

    Its running again over this current school holiday and there are still days left for the kids to do the Central Market trail :biggrin:

    We've done it before and enjoyed it. Kids ate the haul for their lunch over on Victoria Square and played in the water there after. Its of course not a day filler on its own but if you did do it you could combine it with a wander down to North Terrace and amble the Adelaide museum, state library and if it appeals the art gallery. Then a short walk down to the Botanic Gardens and let the kids play there (some great big trees to play amongst and lots of space to run) and then find the cafe and have an ice cream can be a lovely day out.

     

    Some other things going on are listed below also.

    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.

    The Market Trail is back due to popular demand! The trail has been specially formulated for little foodies to learn about the local and imported produce that the market has on offer. With ten pit-stops, each little foodie will receive a market bag, map and will visit the selected stalls to receive a sample item. 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). Please note some sample items may contain nuts and it is the parent or carer’s responsibility to check all items offered by stalls.

    Or after the market trail head the other way to South Terrace and go to Princess Elizabeth playpark. We love it there, fab park for the kids after its revamp. Also big green space for kids to run. Toilets, tables, BBQ etc all there too. Its about a 20 minute walk to the playpark from the market. Or hop on the tram a couple of stops and its about a 10 minute walk along South Tce or across the parklands. Be aware that the playpark is not fully fenced (least it wasn't when we were there last) so you do need to keep an eye on smaller kids and toddlers especially.

    About:

    We paid a visit to the newly upgraded Princess Elizabeth playground on South Terrace when it first reopened after its upgrade in 2014.

    We chose a perfect day, and even though it was still Winter, we managed to have a little picnic while we were there.

    We stayed a good 2 hours but a family could easily stay here for longer without anyone saying they are bored. My children didn't want to leave after 2 hours!!

    The only down side is the playground isn't fully fenced. I was talking to one of the council workers and he wasn't sure if there were plans to finish the fencing or not so that's one consideration you may want to think about with really little ones.

    I think this one may well be in the running for one of our Top 5 family playgrounds!

    Thank you for sharing this.

    The playground is a part of the city that I wouldn't normally think of. I do pass quite frequently though. I often have the grandchildren with me and reckon the issue could be trying to extract them from the playground once play time is over (for me!).:smile:

    Heh, yes, we have the same problem. Ours never wants to leave and would happily bounce along the in ground trampolines all day if we let him :cute: Its a fab playpark and although its right on South Tce, the road side is fenced in. Plus we love the open space the other side for kids to run. Last time we went we took a packed lunch and just hung out till son was ready to head off.
