Refresh. Revive. Revisit…the Century City Natural Goods Market
The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.
The arrival of spring heralds the re-opening of Cape Town’s premier outdoor natural goods fair, the Century City Natural Goods Market, on 30 September. And with the new season of markets comes a refreshing new take on giving visitors some extra entertainment.
“We’re sticking to our successful formula of providing Capetonians with a source of fabulous homegrown food, drinks and crafts, but have added to it a live music component, and something extra to entertain children,” said conveners, Shonah and Heather.
To kick off the season, the NGM have invited that exuberant band, Time Flies, who described themselves as a ‘five piece conglomeration that pedals superior Afro-country-skunk-funk’.
And while Halloween is still a month away, children (and grown ups) will be enthralled by an interactive and educational snake and reptile show, by Minni Mo starting at 11h30 for an hour.
Best of all there will be free train rides every 30 minutes on the Ratanga Junction train.
While there’s an entertaining menu for visitors, the market gives shoppers time to celebrate the bright side of life with a glass of organic bubbly while browsing around the great selection of quality products and delicious food, kept cool and safe under stretch Bedouin tents created by Touareg.
We’re renowned for our food stalls, and there’s something new at this market: we have a fantastic fish braai that includes tuna burgers on that wonderfully tasty Afrikaans break, asbrood. There’s also prego on asbrood for those who prefer traditional steak on the braai.
As always, there are healthy gourmet meals, curries, salads, samoosas, smoked fish, fishcakes, biltong, pies, vegetarian, cheeses, beer, wine, specialty coffees, tea, cakes, cookies, preserves, olives, freshly baked farm breads, confectionary, jams, 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.
