This market unfortunately appears to have been cancelled.
I’m looking forward to checking out a new market very recently launched at the Montebello Design Centre in Newlands. The Mooi Makers Market will showcase handmade products by and for designers, makers and craft producers from South and Southern Africa. Market organisers are “striving for quality products, design and sustainable and ethical production and fair trade”. They had a couple of markets in December, and from the photos it looks fantastic. And what an awesome venue for a market like this. I love Montebello (and it’s close to me) so I can already picture wandering from stall to stall, dotted about the centre’s leafy grounds… can’t wait! Plus (and I’ve very excited about this), this goods market will soon be joined on Fridays by a new outdoor food market, run by an already very successful market organiser. Best of both worlds, in my opinion… More details as soon as I have them!
