The First Unknown Space Market will be held at the Gugulethu Sports Complex, on Saturday, 26 November.

The Unknown Space is a township market celebrating local talent and diversity.

Founder Ntando Bushwana says “The Unknown Space is a collective for creatives to showcase and present their brands to others like them.

A trendy space for people to walk and journey through a juxtaposition of varied creative industries which includes design, fashion, food and art.”

Being the first of its kind in Gugulethu, visitors will have the opportunity to experience limited production focused on community empowerment and supporting local entrepreneurs.

Celebrate culture and craftsmanship with locals, who will be showcasing and selling their best work at the market.

Incorporating a spectrum of young local creatives to popular food trucks and dj’s, the venture was started with the idea of empowering local entrepreneurs and to bring a different experience to the community of Gugulethu.

Among the creatives that will be showcasing will be Miss Anke, a hand-made accessory brand.

It includes studs, earrings, necklace, bracelets and over-wear. Zips are the Miss Anke brand’s signature and the collections feature various zip based designs.

LZ Designs will also be showcasing her vibrant collection. Liziwe is a young fashion designer who focuses on street style mix with an African print and a bit of traditional.

At this family friendly market, visitors can expect to find gourmet food from some of the best food trucks Cape Town has to offer as well as seasoned market food traders.

All the vendors are creative, passionate and committed and need the opportunity to show off the fruits of their labour

Visitors will enjoy live performances by a live band and dj’s while browsing through the displays.

“The Unknown Space headline innovative and original local talent. The market can simply not be missed.

There truly will be something for everyone,” Bushwana concluded.
