With the initial aim of becoming truly representative of the heart and culture of the Mother City, the Sunday and Wednesday Village Markets at the Cape Quarter have achieved exactly that in the past months.
These exciting markets offer locally sourced cheeses, artisan pastries, local gourmet foods, up and coming designers and jewellers and international favourites such as Thai food, Tapas and Fair Trade Coffee. There are face painters for the kids and massages are available for the adults.
The Village Market Events area has recently been renovated by incorporating raw, recycled and repurposed materials. It also includes a stylish new bar, The Market Bar.
The Market Bar, also known as The Boston Breweries Tasting Room and situated in the Cape Quarter, is now open and operates five days a week. It gives the general public a chance to taste all of Boston Breweries’ fine craft beers on tap: Naked Mexican, Van Hunks Pumpkin Ale, Whale Tale Ale, Boston Lager, Hazzard Ten Ale and Johnny Gold Weiss. Wines from different Wine Estates are also being showcased.
The venue is available for hire for private or corporate events. It can accommodate small or large party bookings. The Tasting Room offers craft beer evenings with informative talks with beer and food pairing events to interested groups and parties.
Official opening times for The Tasting Room are as follows:
Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am until 7pm
Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12pm until 7pm
* The Village Market Events area is situated on Level 0, the Square, 27 Somerset Road, Green Point. The Village Market operates on Sundays and Wednesdays from 10am to 3pm.
