FAMILY MARKET NEWS


THE FRUITS OF LIFE
Expect some delicious food combinations with your favourite Spring fruits such as strawberries, apples and pears to name a few.

AN EXTRA MARKET DAY!
Another reason for being excited about September is that it is a month with five Sunday's. This means an extra Sunday that you can spend with your family and friends at the market.
LIVE MUSIC!
We have an exciting music line up planned for this month in order to chase the winter blues away. We kicked off the start of spring with market regular, Zenn, on Sunday. Ricky Nass will be entertaining you on the 8th with his take on some favourite hits.

Bring your tango shoes along on the 15th as Tren Latino lends a spanish feel to the market. Arguably one of the smoothest musicians to perform at the market, Newton will be back on the 22nd.
We have a special treat for you all the way from Hermanus on the 29th. Musical duo, Goodness Gracious' genre of music includes much-loved standards, evergreens, and romantic melodies, as well as some toe-tapping swing, cosmopolitan and Latin numbers.

DOGGY WALK
Remember the Vineyard Doggy Walk in aid of Helderberg Animal Welfare Society on the 15th of September. Come support an amazing charity and spend some quality time with your furry friend at the market.
BE KEPT UP TO DATE WITH OUR LATEST MARKET NEWS
