The Tokai Forest Market formerly known as the Porter Estate Produce market, is an outdoor market located on the lower edges of Tokai Forest.
After a close call with the recent wildfires, the Tokai Forest Market is back on this Saturday 14 March 2015 from 09:00 – 14:00.
What you’ll find there:
Fresh produce (much of it organic), artisan breads, delectable honeys, free range lamb, vinegars, jams and pickles. Hand-crafted goods and clothes. Sit down and indulge in farm-style breakfasts, smoothies, moer-koffie and there are plenty of activities to keep kids busy.
Do your bit for charity this Mandela Day and join the Full Sus and Tokai MTB Club team at Trail & Tar in Tokai for a mountain bike ride in Tokai Forest. We’ll be riding for 67 minutes on Friday afternoon and all you need to do is knock off work early (who works on a Friday afternoon in Cape Town anyway), donate R67 to Qhubeka, bring your SANParks Activity Card or R30 for entry into Tokai and meet us at Trail & Tar at 14:00.
Qhubeka are looking to purchase 67 bicycles to change the lives of 67 school children this Mandela Day and Full Sus is offering you the chance to help and do something you love while you’re at it. Click here for the full story behind 67 bicycles and click here to donate R67 via Qhubeka’s Give and Gain project.
The 67 minute ride will be a social one from Trail & Tar to the Tokai parking area, after that it’s up to you. Trundle along and enjoy a chat or activate Strava for an outlaw enduro, it’s up to you.
If you can’t make it to Trail & Tar to join us for the ride on Friday the 18th of July but decide to do a 67 minute ride and donate R67 anyway you can still stay involved by tweeting a photo of yourself with the hashtag #67minutes67bicycles to @FullSussa and @Qhubeka.
Where: Trail & Tar Unit 3, Forest Glade House, Tokai Road, Tokai, 7945.
The Tokai Arboretum is a park-like area on the slopes of Constantiaberg near Silvermine Nature Reserve. An Arboretum is a botanical garden filled with a collection of trees intended for scientific study. Established in 1885, Joseph Storr Lister started Tokai Arboretum as a research project, with the rationale to test which trees from other parts of the world would grow well in that location. Tokai Forest is the ideal hiking spot with a 6km trail leading to Elephant’s Eye Cave and back. There is a tea room available where you can buy refreshments or enjoy a light breakfast.
This one of kind braai spot is located in the most beautiful setting in Cape Town. Braaiing is not allowed in summer months as it is a fire hazard, so take advantage of warm winter days to enjoy this spot.
Price: R20 for adults, R10 per child.
Open: Monday – Sunday
Location: found on the Constantiaberg side of Ou Kaapseweg
