The bohemian flair of this beachside suburb in Cape Town is captured in this characterful market which, true to Muizenberg’s quirky nature, is situated in an old postal plane hangar. Artisans, artists, bakers and brewers gather every Friday for a vibrant night market that brings to mind New York’s buzzy East Village.
The unique venue gives the market an urban edge, while the laid-back vibe makes it perfect for a family outing. Even dogs are welcome (please keep them on a lead), and children will have plenty to keep them occupied, with their own play area (that includes a jungle gym), as well as various activities, such as face-painting, glitter and sand art.
But That’s Not All…
Some of the fabulous stuff you can expect:
- Bunga Bunga for lip-smacking flame-grilled steaks
- Grub’s Gourmet Burgers
- Babycakes Chocolates for handmade chocolate bars
- Craft beer on tap
- Local wines
- Aeroplane Jane Vintage for vintage clothing
- SBC Ceramics and Nelipot Creations for customised jewellery
- Aether Apothecary and Herbalist
So, leave the worries of your week behind, and join in the festive revelry at the Blue Bird Garage Market on Friday evening.
Good to know Bluebird Garage Market now happens on the first Sunday of the month as well, so you can enjoy a laid-back Sunday morning in Muizenberg.
