This Sunday 20th August, come visit the Tay Ho Artisan Bites Food Market at Emporium, featuring locally-made, organic (or close to organic) products!
The market’s mission is to provide a platform to support existing, up-and-coming businesses as they sell their homemade, or handmade foods within the local community.
It’s all all about community and we want to invite you to sample new products, give direct feedback and purchase your favorite artisan bites to enjoy at home.
Join us for the inaugural market on August 20th from 9am to 3pm in front of the Emporium at 172 Xuan Dieu Street.
Just in case you missed the “Africa Meets Asia” fashion show at the Intercon last week, here’s a few photos of the event – featuring designs by Herbarium & Emporium
Many, many thanks to Kate Lamteva (pictured below) for choreographing the fashion parade.
