Open Farm Community (OFC) brings back its popular Social Market in July, with a special foodie-friendly edition curated around Singaporeans’ favourite national pastimes—eating and shopping. Held across the weekend of 22 and 23 July 2017, the tenth edition of OFC Social Market will take place later in the day from 3.00pm to 8.00pm, instead of its usual daytime format, making it the first sunset market of the series.
Taking its cue from local foodie culture, the two-day market will bring together some of the island’s best artisanal bakers, gourmet grocers, small-batch producers, and modern-day hawkers—in a strong showing of homegrown Singaporean eats.
Market-goers can feast their way through a plethora of fresh food options by local vendors; from Bao Maker’s Asian-inspired buns to salted egg yolk cookies fresh from the ovens of Chefy Bakehouse. Dig into a toss up of Rojak Line’s flavourful vegan rojak, make your own raclette cheese sandwich with perennial crowd pleaser The Raclette Movement, and bring home a slice of savoury quinoa cake from QUIRC.
More than just a day of feasting, the market grounds will also play host to communal activities for all ages. Shake up a storm at a cocktail masterclass hosted by Bacardi Legacy 2017 finalist Jonathan Lee of Tippling Club, make your own flower crown at a nifty Gathered+Styled workshop, or simply take a leisurely stroll through OFC’s flourishing outdoor farm.
