With our first week of Foodie Holiday Market happening next weekend, we’re getting the jitters! Although this is our fourth Foodie Market, this is our very first holiday version in partnership with Fashion Walk, ‘cause we know how important it is to get novel gifts for your loved ones this season.
Now prep your wallets and get ready to stock up on pressies for the upcoming gift exchanges. Trust us, it’s always good to start early. Check out the various vendors participating next weekend!
What’s in store next weekend: 18 & 19 November 2017
A Belgian Beer importer and distributor, Bel-Boy Express is the result of a group of beer lovers wanting to introduce and serve their favourite beers to others but also to take it one step further by importing the brews all the way from Belgium to Hong Kong for local beer lovers.
Cedele designs real food for its customers, handcrafting honest, wholesome items that nourish the body and satisfy the soul. Their ethos “Eat Well. Be Well” translates into everything they do, from sourcing fresh, quality ingredients to creating delicious and nutritious food, slow-cooked and handmade from scratch daily for your enjoyment.
In partnership with Foodie, their restaurant space is hosting our Foodie Hub and also all the workshops from participating vendors. Be sure to check out their booth near their restaurant at Food Street for their assorted Christmas cookies box, assorted marble shortbread cookies box, classic aged fruit cake and more seasonal treats! And we can’t forget Cedele’s homemade mulled wine and awesome coffee cart too.
Start off the first market weekend with some java from Coco Espresso. A coffee expert specialising in bringing in premium-grade beans, grab some of their signature nitro coffee and lemon tea and sip on some cold brew and drip coffee. Purchase their house blends and range of coffee beans to gift to your caffeine-addict friends.
Go absolutely coconuts with Coco Paradise. From improving heart health, to beautifying, to increasing immunity and even aiding with weight loss, the coconut is definitely a superfood. Coco Paradise specialises in creating coconut recipes that eliminate the junk without compromising on flavour. Crunch on snacks such as coconut cashew bites, coconut-matcha bars, coconut-sesame bars, smoky coconut chips and even drinks such as a dairy-free coconut-matcha latte!
Craftissimo crafts happiness through their craft beer creations. A pure passion for quality and taste, an admiration for independent businesses and a reluctance to follow the mass led them to opening Hong Kong’s first and very own dedicated beer shop(s). Try interesting flavours such as Birra del Borgo Duchessa, a floral and peppery beer brewed with spelt malt from Duchessa Regional Park in Italy. Or experience the complex quantity of hops used in the Birra del Borgo ReAle Extra. With T IPA, you can experience a range of aromas and tastes, with unpredictable flavours of citrus, pine resin and tropical fruits. Refresh yourself with some Maley Cider, offering the clean taste of green apple that blends in pleasingly with notes of citrus.
Those into organic food will definitely want to stock up on your organic goods from Everything Organic. With exclusive distribution rights across Asia-Pacific for CityFarm and Be Organic food products, which are all ECO certified, they offer a wide range of competitively priced, high-quality and consistent organic products – we’re talking about juices, extra-virgin olive oil, tomato paste, pasta, dried fruits and nuts, soap, body lotion and lip balm. They are also taking orders for organic Christmas hampers.
