Welcome to a Winter Wonderland by the River

 

This weekend , Sunday 29 July from 10am-4pm, sees the “Winter Wonderland” launch of the new River Club Boutique Market to add to the wonderful ensemble of markets that Cape Town has to offer and I am certain the new kid on the block warrants and will receive the typical enthusiastic Capetownian support.

They promise something a little different and with a themed indoor/outdoor layout boasting a range of bespoke, handcrafted and artisan products one can only imagine that they are certain to deliver on that promise.

It appears they have everything from craft beer and organic wines to speciality teas, from sushi to fresh produce and heart-warming soups, and chocolates and ice-cream and Belgian waffles.

By this point you should be sold, no? ok, playing hard to get then, well there is also home-made lemonade; olives and preserves and then there's the designer, repurposed and vintage couture creations; as well as antiques and collectibles, lifestyle therapists, life readers, beauty treatments and natural body care products, the list truly goes on and on.

As with every quality market, and life in general, it wouldn’t be complete without a sound track and this time it comes in the form of accomplished local artist Matt Roux who will be knocking out some atmospheric acoustic/pop tunes between 12-2pm.

The cost is a mere R20 for adults and R10 for pensioners/students  * children U12 are free * with a percentage of proceeds going towards Mamelani.

So folks this is what one would call a no brainer, so I will see you there. I will be the guy propping up the craft brewery stand or the ice cream stand or the Belgium waffle stand, um…..
