Exhibit and sell your goods at the craft market

The Witzands Aquifer Nature Reserve (Atlantis Dunes) Craft Market is open for all to participate in and attend.

The City calls on all crafters, especially those from the Atlantis, Pella and Mamre communities surrounding the nature reserve to participate in the upcoming market, on Saturday 29 February and Sunday 1 March.

The City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Marian Nieuwoudt, says: “We especially want to encourage local residents to participate in the upcoming market and use the opportunity to showcase their products and interact with visitors.”

The first market was hosted in December last year, and according to Nieuwoudt the response was very encouraging, and organisers believe it will grow as the community realises the opportunity and potential it offers.

“Our staff at the Witzands Aquifer Nature Reserve are passionate and committed to this craft market, as we believe the local communities have much to offer in terms of locally produced and home-made goods.”

Visitors will receive free entry to the craft market, which will be open from 08:00 to 16:00 on both days.

Handsewn clothing, knitting, toys, décor, arts and craft, jewellery, deli products, preserves, fruit and vegetables are welcome. Crafters are reminded that all fresh and baked products they plan to sell on the day must have a label stating an expiry date, the ingredients and information about allergies.

The City will only allow pre-approved products to be sold at the market, and no articles that offend by word or form will be permitted.

“We hope an opportunity such as this will encourage unemployed residents in the surrounding communities to channel some creativity and entrepreneurial spirit,” said Nieuwoudt, “and to use this platform to gain access to potential customers they might not have been able to reach otherwise.”

All interested vendors are welcome to apply to be a part of this exciting new local market:. applications must be submitted by Thursday, 20 February 2020. all applications must include photos and a complete product description, and those without will not be considered. applicants who have not received a response from the City by 24 February 2020 must note that their application for this market day was unsuccessful. preference will be given to crafters living or working in the Atlantis, Mamre and Pella area, and who produce locally hand and art-crafted products that show creativity and originality. send applications and trading enquiries to GailAnthea.Hoffmeester@capetown.gov.za and MellinaJoAnn.DeKock@capetown.gov.za.
