Here’s what you’re doing this weekend: The #HalaalGoodsMarket is on!

So yeah, my timeline has been a food trap recently – y’all know I love to eat and a whole lot more of that’s about to go down!

First off let me say that if halaal (which fyi translated, literally means permissable) isn’t something you’ve ever observed then you’ll never fully appreciate that sinking feeling of going to a restaurant and being relegated to a third of the menu (i.e. vegetarian and seafood options) or sitting in a meeting where lunch was ordered for everyone and you don’t really feel like being difficult and explaining for the umpteenth time that you’re not really into carbonara pasta. Yup, you’re sure. And nope, you don’t want a bite just to try it (but thank you).

So to say I’m giddy (and hungry!) in anticipation of a market where I can eat e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g and a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g  is an understatement! There are close to 70 vendors planned from all around SA. In the words of Fehmz, the brains behind the event

“we’ve scoured the home industries, pop ups, and small businessesto curate the best connoisseurs in the halaal industry”

Here’s a liiiiiitle taster 🙂

fusion sushi – I’m not sure what that is, but Imma find out from the folks at OneBigSushiRoll

 

I first had Sugarlicious at friend’s wedding a few years ago. If you don’t know them, here’s the short version: ice cream sandwiched in a macaron. ‘Nuff said…

 

Maverick and Jane have been all over insta but I’m yet to try some…

 

I just clicked through to La DolceVita and um, yeah they’ll be seeing me (I hope they’re bringing that peppermint aero waffle cake I spy on their page!)

 

I really could go on and on with the food pics but lemme stop to also say it’s not just food. The Halaal Goods Market describes itself as an “Artisan Food and Design Market”…

I’ll be looking our for CT  based designer 5threads (I actually want to try on this skirt!)


 thegentlemansbeardclub needs no introduction…

 

the kids are not forgotten, there’ll be canvas/fabric painting and various workshops throughout the day by artycraftyfingers

 

From the looks of things every possible payment option will be available. So if you prefer cash, credit/debit cards, Snapscan, Yoco, Zapper or Absa Payment Pebble – its all good.

Entry is free & to state the obvious, EVERYONE is welcome. I’ll be there as soon as the doors open on Saturday – do come say hi!

Here’s to the inaugural Halaal Goods Market – I really hope we’ll be seeing this as a regular feature soon.
