The Mojo Market opened its doors on 27 April 2017 on Sea Point’s iconic Regent Road. And since then, this hybrid urban street market has been sending excited ripples through the city’s foodie circles. Here’s why…
Sea Point scene
This vibrant space – which boasts around 45 food, home and clothing stalls in a 2 000-square metre area – is a welcome addition, not just to the Cape’s ever-growing market ranks, but also to the Mother City scene, and particularly Sea Point, where the Promenade and popular eateries such as Scheckter’s Raw, My Sugar, Sundoo and Three Wise Monkeys, are a mere stone’s throw away.
Offering expansive floor-to-ceiling views, plentiful seating and a wealth of exciting stalls, this industrial-chic market, designed by Indigo Fusion and Jade & Ginja, combines Art Deco elements with metallics and wood, which add a softer element.
Mother City Mojo
Owners Graeme Robinson and Robbie Lessem, who also own the Mojo Hotel, established the market with the aim of enhancing their hotel guests’ experience – and they also wanted to offer Sea Point residents an interesting, diverse and fresh retail and leisure space. Which is exactly what this market is!
What a lot it’s got
Visitors can look forward to amazing food and drink offerings. What got us really excited is The Mojo Coffee Collective, which showcases Cape Town’s best artisan coffee roasters.
Other great offerings include:
- The Mussel Monger for the freshest mussels and oysters
- Vagabond Kitchens for delicious steak wraps, flatbreads, burgers and seared tuna
- Tortilla Modern Mexican
- The Strong One for African-print clothing
So, if you haven’t yet visited, set aside a day or night this week to delve into the delightful depths of this new hub.
Good to know
