The Blue Bird Garage Food & Goods Market in Muizenberg takes place on Thursday and Friday nights in an old postal plane hangar. The market is filled with local artisans such as cooks, bakers, designers and producers under one roof. It is a cornerstone of the town’s urban community. Guests can find local and international foods at the many food stalls as well as beautiful handmade ceramics, clothing, jewellery, body products and much more.
Handpicked South Africa wines and craft beers are sold by bars in the market. One of its key features is the Bicycle Bar which offers local beers on tap, as well as soft drinks, kombucha, wine and shooters. The market’s newest addition, the Secret Gin Bar, sells unique local gins and gin cocktails. Blue Bird has a creative play area for kids that features face painting and sand art, as well as a jungle gym. Vintage goods can also be found in some of the speciality stalls.
Dinner and dessert are served in the market with food ranging from steaks to falafels as well as brownies and donuts. Some stalls sell fruit and vegetables, as well as free-range eggs, smokes sausages, cheeses and homemade jams and pickles. Dogs are welcome to join the market festivities as long as they are on a leash.
