Alley Market, an exciting new street food venture, is set to open on 5 December at the Village Square in Hermanus.
Designed to offer visitors and residents an “on-the-go” eating opportunity in the heart of the Central Business District (CBD) from 07:30 to 19:00 every day, Alley Market will have 16 stalls offering a range of dishes and alcoholic drinks.
“I think that Alley Market is going to be an added attraction for tourists and the CBD in general. We need to push forward in terms of broadening what Hermanus offers. There is so much potential in Hermanus Old Town and the Village Square is the heartbeat of the area. We are very excited to have the new attraction up and running,’ says Kijl Resandt, the Marketing Manager of Village Square.
The Brewery at the Hemel-en-Aarde Village has teamed up with Woodstock Breweries in Cape Town to offer craft beers, a gin bar and pizzas. Fusion Restaurant, already present at Village Square, will be doing burgers while Ghanaian, Jojo Banson, will bring the exotic tastes of West Africa with a selection of dishes such as Red Red, Kelewele, Waakye, Yam Croquettes and Jollof Rice.
“He is going to be a very colourful character and he is going to do very well,” remarks Kijl who adds that sushi, coffee, waffles, fish and chips, ice cream and curries will also be on offer.
But Kijl sees Alley Market as an opportunity to set an example. “We are going green. We need fresh thinking going forward. With us being a whale-watching destination, by the sea, we should set an example and be the benchmark for going green,” he says.
