Double the fun – that’s what luxury kitchen appliances brand APS Lifestyle and high-end furniture retailer DREAM clearly believe in. The two have joined forces to put together a sprawling spread in the comfort of both their air-conditioned spaces, with shuttle services to provide transport to-and-fro each market.
Here’s 3 reasons to check out The Market Hop when it happens next weekend, 4 Jun to 5 Jun:
1) Curation is key
Who would have thought our city’s tepid waters could be suitable to breed oysters? Sea Farmers @ Ubin proves it can be done. (Related: Read our story on shell-stamped oysters to find out more)
Besides Sea Farmers, the market will also have over 50 vendors selected by APS Lifestyle and Dream together with The Peak Selections: Gourmet & Travel. Sneak peek at who (or what) to expect: Korean-Mexican tacaos from Seoul import Vatos Urban Tacos, slow-smoked meats from Red Eye Smokehouse (Related: Low-and-slow is a rising trend in Singapore), and fun tunes by Vinylicious Records.
2) Go for a spin
Possibly the only market where you get to take a car for a test-drive and stand to win prizes – good ones at that. The brands have collaborated with British automotive marque MINI so market-hoppers get to rev up the MINI Countryman or the newer MINI Clubman and stand to win a SMEG toaster, courtesy of APS Lifestyle.
3) Skip the warehouses
Most markets aim to fill your belly. This one’s looking to fill your home. DREAM is showing off exclusive pieces from brands like Cassina, Cappellini, Sancal, Matthew Hilton, Autoban and Mineheart – this is your chance to snap them up.
Date and time: 4 Jun to 5 Jun, 11am – 7pm.
Where: APS Lifestyle Gallery, 9 Muthuraman Chetty Road & DREAM Showroom, 456 River Valley Road.
