Live Music and Fine Food at City Bowl Market on Hope Street


Live music, tasty nibbles and good wine – the City Bowl Market on Hope is the ideal venue for a chilled Thursday evening.

If you haven’t yet been to the City Bowl Market on Hope, add it to your market meander. This weekly food fair happens on Thursday evenings and is a veritable fest of homemade grub, craft beer and good wine.

The Wine Market is what grabbed our attention… largely because wine-tasting in the city centre is always fun, plus the market’s two wine traders offer organic wines (read: no hangover!). For a small price, you can acquire a tasting glass with nine tastings from the participating vendors, after which you get a free glass of wine of your choice.

Other stand-out offerings include:

  • Uitsteakend steaks on a roll
  • Ramen Noodles, Hummus falafel, Delicious African dishes and Italian food
  • Empanadas mini pies
  • The Mixer Stand for mojitos, margaritas and pina coladas
  • La Petite Moo Brownies
  • Lisa’s Lush Salads
  • The Diner Hamburgers & Hotdogs
  • Durban’s Finest Curry
  • Something Special’s vegan food
  • Ragamuffin’s pulled-pork buns
  • The Biltong stand, selling various flavours, chilli beef and droe wors
  • Delicious fruit juices
  • Clothing, jeweller and leather handbags
  • The Soap Chef, selling special hand made soaps and body lotions


Thursdays, 4.30pm – 8.30pm
