Our Winter Night Market rocks!  Most definitely one of the most popular events currently in Cape Town, the Winter Night Market on Intaka Island returned with a big bang as over a thousand visitors joined us on Friday evening, 27 May. Food and beverages for every taste were served, with heaters ensuring that the evening stayed warm and cozy.


“We received amazing feedback that old and young thoroughly enjoyed the evening, so much so that our guests did not want to leave!” says Rentia Morcom, Intaka Island Eco-Centre Manager. “At 21:00 the crowd was asking for more music from the incredible musicians, Empire Alight.”


As a result of the first night’s record attendance, the market was extended for the June event, with additional food vendors added.   Delicious deli items such as smoked meat and cheese by Begk’s and a large selection of breads by The Bread Baker Extraordinaire was for sale.  A variety of cooked meals ensured that patrons could try and test from foods around the world.  Taiwanese delicacies from Lin Family Eats, Chinese favourites were served by S&J Dim Sum and Saffron Eatery delighted with samosas, curries and other yummy, spicy meals.  Wonderful aromas of pizzas, burritos, NYC style hot dogs, burgers, seafood and more filled the buzzing air as friends and families enjoyed the winter’s evening.  To wash it all down, patrons enjoyed from wine to beers and bubbly, as well as coffees, soft drinks and smoothies.


Live music by Nick Turner and Jamie Jupiter made sure that the ambience was happy and spirited, keeping the crowd bobbing and fully entertained.


There are two more Winter Night Markets to go this season.  Join us on 29 July and 26 August from 16:00 to 21:00 at Intaka Island.  Don’t miss out!
