Changes to the Taste at Simon’s Market


Taste at Simons Market will now be open only on Sundays from 11am – 7pm. The owners have opted to focus all their energy on making the one day truly spectacular rather than diluting the experience over the whole weekend. This was successfully launched last weekend and the feedback was great. Guests enjoyed the views whilst listening to our newly appointed saxophonist who played from 11am until 3pm. From 3pm we livened things up a bit with the “Jambo Africa Band”  and guests watched the sunset whilst dancing along to some familiar favorites. Don’t worry, the Deli will still be open Monday – Saturday and offers a variety of Charcuterie & cheese boards, light snacks, a raw bar and curios so please feel free to pop in if you in the area!

The other big news is that they have done away with the cashless system. The feedback from customers wasn’t great on this and they want to make sure the customer has a good experience from start to finish! You can now pay by cash, credit card, zapper or snapscan. Kindly note that the payment options available do differ from vendor to vendor and some do not accept credit cards, but vouchers are available to purchase in R100 booklets which can be purchased with credit cards and are accepted by ALL vendors.

By running the market exclusively on Sundays, the team can now focus on growing the number of authentic home grown stalls and adding various entertainment options including LIVE music every Sunday from 3pm – 6pm. The bands will alternate week to week to ensure guests get a full variety. As well as the band, they will also have Calendar , the saxophonist every Saturday and Sunday from 11am – 5pm.

The market will also run exclusive brand activations which is kicking off this Sunday with the “Peroni Sipping Sunday”. The Peroni Sipping Sunday will be focused only on the mezzanine level and will cost you R100 to get in. This will cover an ice cold Peroni draught to go with the tempting light snacks while you mix it up with with the friendly folk at one of Cape Town’s most picturesque settings. What better way could there be to spend a Sunday?
