I say it so many times on the blog but I will say it again… Cape Town is the heartbeat of this blog. From the picturesque views, the multi cultural cuisines, the hustle and bustle of the city and just the overall vibe of the people – finding a new space in the heart of Sea point that encompass everything that I just explained is without a doubt a place that I want to hang out at. A few weeks ago I got invited to come and check out the new market that will be open 7 days a week from 9am to 9pm called the Mojo Market.The Mojo Market is situated on Regent Street Sea Point, between Church and Clarens Roads in the same building that houses the Mojo Hotel which is one of the hotels that I am dying to stay at next. I can already tell that the Mojo Market is going to be the destination of choice this winter with so many yummy eateries such as Manga Sushi, Kubu African Grill, The Mussel Monger, Argies Argentinian Grill, Te Awesome Tea, The Candy Shoppe, IYO Burger, Chilo and Hokey Poke to name a few.The Mojo Market can’t be described as a farmer’s market as it has the energy of a city. The plan for the retail and leisure space is to keep it alive at night too with fun events that will become an integral part of the Sea Point lifestyle. With over 80 stalls selling unique and interesting items, there is definitely something for everybody. At the market there will be an array of both international and locally produced items to give market goers a taste of both spectrums.
“The retail offering focuses largely on local and international producers who are creating fresh, contemporary wares from clothing to gifts, jewellery and homeware. Confirmed vendors include Dammit Janet clothing, Sexy Bum Bikinis, Shika Africa’s brightly-coloured and Shwe-Shwe inspired clothing and accessories, King Kong’s leather goods, Matsidiso handmade shoes, Just a Rumour beaded jewellery, King of Denim’s ethically created jeans, Vanilla Tree Indo-African clothing, Modern and Tribal’s Turkish-inspired decor, Kwaai Galleries handmade gifts and homewear and many more.”
To me what stands out about the market (besides everything that I just mentioned above) is the impressive time/hours that the market will be open. The market will be open 7 days a week, 364 days a year with the exception of Christmas day where the 25th will be optional for some traders.
If I haven’t convinced you then I don’t know what will! 😉 I am so keen on doing a Mojo weekend at the hotel and then exploring every 2000 square meters of the mojo market. Sounds amazing, right?!
