The annual Slow Market Christmas Week returns to Willowbridge Lifestyle Centre from December 12 to 19 – this time adding an element of copper to the celebration.
The use of copper for kitchen accessories such as pots, pans and jelly moulds reflects the original Cape style kitchen dating back to the 1600s. What better way to celebrate Christmas than with our very own Cape heritage and the hearty, wholesome food for which Slow Market is renowned?
Set in a modern, easily accessible, popular shopping destination in Tyger Valley, prepare for a whole week of fusion between all that is traditional, authentic fresh goods market meandering and hip, trendy retail experiences as the build-up to Christmas 2015 continues.
Dangling copper décor promises to enchant visitors’ senses with a variety of specialty traders in local foods, fashion and craft – the ideal opportunity to get all your Christmas shopping in the bag. There will be a wide selection of authentic and artisanal items on offer during the entire trading week. Expect copper pots and spoons dishing up Christmas favourites.
Carols sung by live voices will float about in the air, complimented by Christmas atmospherics and exploding with colour. There will be live bands and entertainment for the whole family during the entire week, including Aston Wylie and The Cherry Vinyl Band. Expect quality acts that will get feet tapping with unplugged performances while you browse and ponder on what to buy for your loved ones this year.
