PLAYING LIVE: BLACK SOUTH EASTER
ENTERTAINMENT: BIRDS OF AFRICA SHOW

It’s time once more for the popular Century City Natural Goods Market to give visitors the chance to eat good, do good, listen good and shop good at its popular summer fair.

Cape Town’s ‘bird man’ and his feathered friends are attending the Century City Natural Goods Market at the end of the hot month of February. Martin Odd, accompanied by Christina the Macaw Parrot and Hector the African White Backed Vulture have been pressed into service at the market to entertain and educate young and old with the Birds of Africa Show (from 11h00 - 12h00) (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Birds-of-Africa/104282906284550)

Visitors to Cape Town’s premier natural goods market will also be blown away by the sounds of Black South Easter (http://www.blacksoutheaster.com). Playing from 10h00 - 11h00 and  from12h00 - 13h00, the band takes their name from the powerful wind that sweeps through the Peninsula every so often. They deliver a soulful sound that combines folk, reggae, dance and funk, great foot-stomping stuff that will accompany shoppers in their quest to find the treasure housed under a cool Bedouin-style tent . 

While there’s an entertaining menu for visitors as well as children with free train rides every 30 minutes on the Ratanga Junction train until 1.30pm, the market gives shoppers time to celebrate the festive side of life with a glass of organic bubbly while browsing around the great selection of quality products and delicious food, kept cool and protected from the elements under Bedouin style stretch tents created by Touareg.

We’re renowned for our food stalls so as always, there are healthy gourmet meals, curries, salads, samoosas, smoked fish, fishcakes, biltong, pies, vegetarian, cheeses, beer, champagne, wine, specialty coffees, tea, cakes, cookies, preserves, olives, freshly baked farm breads, confectionary, freshly squeezed juice and smoothies – we’ve got it all!

If you are looking for original gifts, there will be stalls selling crafts and clothing at reasonable prices, or you can spoil yourself with fabulous natural body care products and jewelry.

The on-site clubhouse has seating facilities, and offers coffee, tea and a bar. Visitors can also enjoy boat trips from Intaka Island to Canal Walk.

Once again, the local Century City Rotary will be on hand to tell people about the community service projects they support, particularly the Sinenjongo High School in Joe Slovo Park in Milnerton (which is very near its Century City base).
 

For the mutt lovers, African Tails will be hosting an adoption day with the cutest brakkies and puppies. Their stunning calendar is also on sale, and makes a wonderful gift.
