Locally Yours Market welcomes spring with extended trading hours

Port Elizabeth - Spring symbolizes new growth alongside change and the Locally Yours Market has introduced a fresh change with a Friday night prelude to the existing Saturday event to cater for a wider audience.

The next Locally Yours Market is scheduled to take place on Friday evening, 6th September and Saturday morning, 7th September at the Tramways Building, Nelson Mandela Bay.

“Positive feedback from marketgoers sharing our passion for locally handmade products has motivated Locally Yours Market to introduce the Friday night session that will accommodate patrons looking for a space to relax after a long work week, students in search of a casual atmosphere to socialise or those who otherwise cannot attend on a Saturday,” advised Market Director Ms Annelize Botha.

Locally Yours Market is excited to launch a two-day spring celebration of handmade local crafts, food and music. Friday night market-goers can expect the same display as the usual Saturday event that includes delicious food treats from Vossie’s Deli, Mook’s, Ammina’s Fusion and @Karoo to name a few alongside beverages supplied by Da Roca Pink Gin and Tonic and Groundfloor Café coffee.

There are an array of new vendors joining the spring edition of the Locally Yours Market that provides a melting pot of handmade items ranging from jewellery, clothes, art, fresh produce, décor and more. New additions include Abenna Naturals, Kefir Life, Lushi’s Designs, Mmmdelicious, Perfect Smoothie, Wendleberry Kids and Windgat Stencils.

Abenna Naturals body products differentiate themselves by combining organic shea butter and essential oils in small batch productions ensuring they are able to produce quality for clients, while Kefir Life have been inspired by nature to supply water, tea, milk and cheese kefir that could be accompanied by stoneground herb crackers, all of which provide health benefits.

If an indulgent sweet treat is the choice of the day, Mmmdelicious will be on hand to offer chocolate mousse cake, lemon meringue, ginger snaps, koeksisters, carrot cake and vegan cupcakes. As an alternative, The Perfect Smoothie offers a range of value for money smoothie’s to entice your taste buds to a healthier lifestyle.

Lushi’s Designs share their passion for beautiful interior spaces with hand crafted cushions while Wendleberry Kids are inspired by the creative and endless possibilities of designing unique children’s clothing with custom printed fabrics.

Windgat Stencils are encouraged by the happy crafters to whom they supply durable laser cut stencils to decorate all types of surfaces from walls, floors, furniture as well as small craft items. It definitely would not be a spring market without beautiful fresh flowers that will be on sale from Petals Florist.

Market Director Ms Annelize Botha requests, “The ongoing support by citizens to embrace a local creative event that sustains entrepreneurs has been phenomenal and we encourage anyone who has not yet visited to the market to step out this spring and share our passion.”

The Locally Yours Market continues to waive their entrance fee and have instead opted to ask for donations towards the Animal Anti-Cruelty League. Visit the market, enjoy the creative offerings and enter a variety of competitions while supporting a good cause.

The next Locally Yours Market can be enjoyed on Friday, 6th September from 4-9pm and Saturday the 7th September between 9am-3pm at the Tramways Building, Lower Valley Road, port Elizabeth.
