January Market – Hello 2016!

Thank you once again for supporting our little market! We pride ourselves in supporting local traders from all over the West Coast, the Northern Suburbs and even the rest of Cape Town. Thank you to everyone who supported us from September 2015, our debut was an interestingly fun start and you guys have been there every step of the way. A market is not much without incredible traders, so thank you!

We were also very surprised and very excited about our January market being featured by the Getaway Magazine Blog “16 of the best markets in Cape Town” with the “rare find” going to SteamsUp (hat pictured below).

Held once a month during summer, this is the only market where you are likely to spot a surfer strolling past a food truck, board in hand. It takes place right on the promenade at the Big Bay Surf Lifesaving Club so after browsing through all the goodies for sale indoors, you can grab a drink from the bar, a bite to eat and watch the sunset from one of the tables outside. There’s also seating out the back under fairy lights which adds to the feel-good summer vibe. The four food trucks aside, you’ll find bratwursts, hotdogs, cheese grillers, schwarmas, burgers, bitterballen, calamari and tacos. Take plenty of cash along as there’s a lot of lovely handcrafted items for sale including jewellery, cushions, clothing, pictures, ceramics and arty airplants.

What a win!!
