The FoodWineDesign Fair was launched in 2010 by Artlogic and Sanlam Investments. The first of its kind in South Africa, it’s described as a “boutique outdoor market” and features the best local furniture crafters, artisan products, top wine labels, micro breweries and speciality foods.
If it’s important to you to eat the best local foods, taste South African boutique wines and decorating your home with the works of South African designers and artists. – then this is the place for you. The Chefs in the City project will see David Higgs, Michael Holenstein and Thom Hughes each take the stand for one day to treat visitors to their creations.
This year’s event will take place from 7-9 November on the rooftop of the Hyde Park Corner shopping centre. I’ve been told that they’ve gone to every effort to turn it into a magical setting with tented areas, theatre lighting, inspired dining and retailing areas, and larger than life landscaping.
With the Fair being the first event of its kind to combine elements from food, wine and design industries, Sanlam believes that the positive change and shift in direction will result in the growth of even more proudly South African entrepreneurs.
As “local” and “well-made” are an integral part of the Fair, and much like the exhibitors are experts in their chosen field, Sanlam is the expert in investments and understands the importance of being able to offer a superior product. Sanlam also has a huge respect for the extraordinary amount of time, planning and sheer determination it takes to turn a dream into a sustainable business despite economic business challenges.
