Day 7: Friday 24th February 2017
The school week ended with a visit to Adelaide’s Central Market with St Patrick’s food and hospitality learners. Adelaide Central Market was officially opened on the 22nd January 1870 and has continued to thrive since that day. The market is now home to over 70 food and produce stalls and is South Australia’s most visited tourist attraction.
Upon entering the market, the UK and Australian learners were given a presentation which described the history of the market and explained how it has developed over time. After the presentation was over, learners were then taken to a number of stalls where they were given the opportunity to taste some of the produce which was on offer.
