Market Update: COVID-19
As at Wednesday 18 March

In light of recent developments, we have suspended cooking classes in The Neff Market Kitchen for the next four weeks.

The hospitality industry has been hit particularly hard by COVID-19, and our chefs have already spent time preparing the class content and writing recipes, so we are trying where possible to support instructors by rescheduling any suspended classes rather than cancelling them.

We will continue to monitor the situation on a day-by-day basis and extend the suspension period if required, keeping ticket holders and our website up to date.

We thank you all for your patience and understanding while we work through this. For any enquires regarding events and activities at the Market, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via our website.



The Neff Market Kitchen

The Neff Market Kitchen is home to the Market’s hugely successful and extremely popular cooking school. Offering a range of classes at differing levels of skill and price point, The Neff Market Kitchen brings together some of Melbourne’s best chefs with people who are passionate about cooking, in an innovative new culinary space.

Classes are run by some of Melbourne’s most esteemed and admired chefs including Nicky Riemer (Bellota Wine Bar), Matteo Toffano (Grossi Florentino Upstairs), Luke Croston (The Press Club), Daniel Giraldo (Maha) and Alejandro Saravia (Pastuso). Intimate class sizes allow plenty of opportunity to converse with the chef and learn about their areas of specialisation.

Not only is The Neff Market Kitchen used for cooking classes, but it is regularly activated with demonstrations, workshops and private classes and hire. Private classes and hire come in many formats, ranging from birthday parties to private dinner parties, foodie social groups to not-for-profit gatherings.
