The day includes:
Street Market: 30-plus traders with stalls ranging from vintage clothing to books, vinyl, jewellery, handcrafts, handmade kids toys, accessories and clothes, natural body products, handmade plant boxes and hangers and plenty of food, including Indian style street food and traditional Malay koesisters.
Live Music: Lonely Dave Ferguson (FB: @davefergusonofficial) will perform a solo harmonica bluesy looping set, while gypsy jazz maestro Daniel Zachariah Franks (FB: @danielfranksmusic) will bring some swing to the street, while resident vinyl DJ Sam will be spinning records in-between.
Shops: Resident Palmer Road shops will be open, offering streetwear, pottery, jewellery, meditation chairs, handcrafts and more, while JOON restaurant – voted as one of the Top 15 Pizza Places in Cape Town (by locals in Cape Town Magazine) will have their pizza oven firing all day.
