Only On A Sunday Market

Zula Sound Bar Market Only on A Sunday Market

Long Street is usually bustling with people, activity and non-stop entertainment - except on a Sunday. Although it may loose that chaotic-crazy energy it transforms into something very different and yet lovely in it’s own right. Laura Ronchi noticed this void and launched at the opportunity to create Cape Town’s newest, freshest and vibrant indoor Sunday market. Only On A Sunday… Located in the stunning Zula, Sound Bar building on Long Street the interior possesses that old–worldly charm dating back to the 1800’s. As you weave your way through the different floors and levels expect a delectable variety of art, live entertainment and eclectic stalls offering an abundance of goods ranging from A to Z, retro to modern, collectibles

And although The World Cup hype is deliciously palpable, sometimes we need to step out of the red-robot-green-robot regiment that's currently on show and remember the slow, sultry offerings that lie outside of our mini metropolis. Take some time to slow down. This weekend the Stellenbosch Slow Food Fair exhibits South Africa's eclectic food culture. Over forty food stands will feature Indian, German, British, European and Chinese cuisines in a heated marquee - what better resistance to Winter than warm bellies inside and out.  For hot Gossip Girl XOXO - type convo and a good dose of estrogen in the air (which has been admittedly

Good Food and Wine Show Cape Town

The Good Food and Wine show swings into Cape Town today. Sleeves rolled up, salt and pepper at the ready, Cape Town's kitchen-groupies are twitching as excitably as sugared kids at Christmas.  The Good Food and Wine Show brings culinary theater, big-name book signings and workshops by world-class chefs. The Chefs In Action Theater brings us the BBC's best chefs in live rapport with local celebs, recreating their most innovative and favourite recipes. For the green-thumbed, prime organic produce is on sale, and the slow food market shows us exactly why slow food is so worth the wait. And with a children's cooking workshop distracting the rugrats, why not let loose a little. It's cocktail o'clock all day
