Open Farm Community is bringing 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 pm to 8 pm, instead of its usual daytime format, making it the first #sunsetsocial 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.
OFC will also be setting up its own booth at the market, offering a freshly made selection of fruit juices, almond milk, and cold brews; along with an outdoor barbecue where farm-fresh festival grub is served hot off the grill.
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.
