If you want to enjoy heritage food and vibrant handcrafts, then the Bo-Kaap's Food and Craft Market is the place to be located at the Schotschekloof Civic Centre in Upper Wale Street. Free entrance to the public. Organisers say this monthly market day is an opportunity to mingle with the residents of this historic urban precinct for an enriching cultural experience. Traditional crafts, and the signature Cape Malay dishes are amongst the offerings to be had here.

"View Aunty Galija's photo collection of Bo-Kaap, then and now” and unique handmade jewelery and lots more on sale. Sit down and enjoy coffee with traditional cakes, samoosas and koesisters, and homemade jams. Whilst exploring the handcraft stalls at leisure, orders can be placed for tasty traditional foodfare.

The event is hosted regularly by the Bo-Kaap Cultural and Heritage Gateway, a women empowerment group who aims to up-lift the community through self-help skills development and job creation, using local talent. This historic urban enclave with its vibrant, colourful Bo-Kaap residents remains one of Cape Town’s premier cultural gems on the slopes of Signal Hill where overseas visitors and locals collectively can experience the sights, sounds and tastes of this slave descendant community rooted in Indonesia, India, Madagascar and East Africa.

This self-help project is the dream of a dynamic group of women to create a platform for self-employment through home industries, village markets, traditional food experiences and cultural events in the Bo-Kaap, thereby empowering in particular women and unemployed youth. A monthly Food and Craft Market , working with the FNB Community Outreach Programme, ABSA Small Business Development to facilitate learnerships and entry level youth employment with the local private business sector, is proof that this project is a serious commitment to the community of Bo-Kaap.
