The Earth Fair Food Market is one of my favourites on the Cape Town scene. It’s fun, unpretentious, the vibe is friendly, and the food is fantastic. It started out in Tokai, then branched out to do an outdoor street market in the heart of the CBD (St George’s Mall) and now it’s also going to be setting up camp on the other side of the mountain, in Noordhoek.
Earth Fair at Noordhoek Farm Village will be held under a Bedouin tent in front of the Foodbarn and will host 20-25 of the top traders and artisans in Cape Town. Market goers can stock up on top quality fresh produce, farm cheeses and artisan breads. Once all the shopping is done, shoppers can grab a seat at the communal tables and enjoy a variety of craft beers, organic wines, stoneground flour crepes, tasty treats from the FoodBarn and sushi from De Noordhoek Hotel. Stokkiesdraai will be there with their famous biltong, there will be freshly made Crepes by Lemon Moon, Bratwursts by Top Nosh etc.
Earth Fair is really looking forward to being a part of the Noordhoek Farm Village and to bringing a first of its kind of market to the Beautiful South. The aim of the market is to supply locals with good quality fresh produce and speciality goods and to provide a family orientated community meeting point.
As you’ll know if you’ve been to any of the markets, the Earth Fair Market is all about supporting small, local producers and providing ethically farmed and produced food. Market owner Jacqui Simpson is passionate about local producers and really excited about the possibility of sourcing additional fresh produce from the area – and there’s certainly plenty of that in Noordhoek and surrounds.
I can’t wait to see what the new market has in store for us. So, save the date – I’ll see y’all there!
