Bo-Kaap Food and Craft Market

A new community food and craft market will be launching next Saturday in the Bo-Kaap.

Here’s what organisers say they have in store for visitors:

“Mingle with the residents of this historic area for a truly cultural experience. View Aunty Galija’s photo collection of Bo-Kaap then and now. Tasty traditional foods, biscuits, cakes, samoosas, crafts, gifts, pickles, smoked snoek, dried fruit, jewelery and lots more on sale. Sit down and enjoy coffee and koesisters or curry and roti. Place orders with the stall holders for dinner parties or Ramadaan.  Have a look at some of the interesting products on exhibition at our Market Days,  See you  there!”

I think it sounds quite fun, and I think the focus on traditional foods might just give it a unique character that other markets might not have.
