The popular Quays Market will celebrate spring on the edge of the canal in the Point Development area on November 3.

The Whole Food Market takes place in the huge function room, outdoor picnic area and mezzanine sun-downer deck at The Quays which is part of the new Point Road development project. This proactive initiative continues the vision of Glenwood Community Forum member and market convenor Darryl Hofmann to offer a series of inspired gourmet-events in interesting places.

With the onset of spring, Hoffman wanted a venue from which to enjoy the beautiful change in season – somewhere with a view and a breeze. The Quays is situated on the island surrounded by the canal which boasts gondola rides and pedal boats.

There is ample space for food vendors, crafters as well as picnic spaces and an elegant sun-downer deck.

Hofmann has carefully chosen stall holders which will create a deli-vibe – allowing visitors to purchase produce from the stalls, and assemble a meal, indoor picnic style. Again, there will be plenty to taste, as well as boutique wines, cocktails, salon beers and beer from micro-breweries. Sundowner specials are on offer from 17h00 to 18h00.

Live music will add ambiance to the evening.

The Quays Market takes place from 17h00 to 22h00 on November 3. There is ample parking – alongside the Quays, at the Durban Underwater Club and nearby uShaka, and there will be additional security personnel on duty.

To find The Quays – take the second left after uShaka at Wodka, and go over the canal bridge as though going to Durban Underwater Club. Night Market will be on your right. More information from Yossis on 031 201 0090 or Tracey on 072 552 8152.
