The River Club Boutique Market is a new market about to hit the Cape Town scene, this time at the River Club in Observatory.
The market, which will be held every two months, is set to be part goods, part food market, with an appealing emphasis on hand-picked, hand-crafted, artisan food and goods.
SELECT BESPOKE, HANDCRAFTED, COLLECTIBLE & ARTISAN
food, gifts, collectibles, fashion, décor, design, lifestyle, family
plus live music & performances, art-house films and more…
Set against the picturesque backdrop of the River Club, this one-of-a-kind, indoor/outdoor themed bespoke, handcrafted and artisan market features the best-handpicked local exhibitors. Visitors can sample the offerings of some of the Peninsula’s finest designer, handcrafted and lifestyle vendors.
Think craft beer and speciality teas; oysters and sushi; organic wines, chocolates and fresh produce; heart-warming soups; artisan ice-cream; charcuterie delicacies; Belgian waffles; home-made lemonade; fabulous olives and preserves and so much more. Then there’s the designer, repurposed and vintage couture creations (décor, jewellery and fashion clothing); as well as antiques and collectibles, lifestyle therapists, life readers, beauty treatments and natural body care products.
As well as all the goodies for sale, visitors can enjoy live music and displays by popular local performers; art-house films; plus a sheltered, supervised kids’ activity area (including extras like a petting zoo and loads of additional outdoor activities in summer).
It certainly sounds very promising, and I’ll be heading that way this Sunday to see what organisers have managed to put together!
