Think you know food?
Prove your culinary know-how in the Adelaide Central Market Challenge and cement your place in gastronomic history!
We’ll be testing not just your food knowledge, but your palate, food prep skills, creativity, teamwork and sense of direction in this high-intensity sensory skirmish. Expect blind tastings, food preparations, and a cryptic treasure hunt around the city’s world-famous market – while racing against the clock and other teams. Designed for both the young… and the wise, but BYO running shows!
Since launching at the 2014 Adelaide Fringe Festival, the Market Challenge has seen hundreds of competitors challenge the table across many public and private events. Contact us for booking enquiries.
