Madisons Market Cafe’

where 's meet... one lo ve Helloo East London... We are super excited to be part of the What's On East London, and proud to support small local business. I am Tarryn, the obsessive, compulsive, passionate, loud, friendly, breast cancer survivor and owner of Madisons Market Café, situated in Epsom Road, Stirling. We're the only permanent, indoor and proudly local Market in East London, with a lovely cosy Café. My Story: In November 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, had a double mastectomy, six red devil chemos, lost all

my hair, had 25 radiations, a port insert, phase two reconstruction, 18 herceptins and finally hit remission (or should I say healed) and had my port removed in April 2019 ... yes it was a long bumpy road, and the after effects are still a daily challenge, but it made me follow my dream and become who I am today and I wouldn't change a thing. I dreamed of having an indoor market where local vendors could be set up permanently without having to set up and down constantly, and their products could be readily available to customers ... well I'm proud to say in December

Our Vendors

INTERESTED IN BECOMING A LOCAL VENDOR? CONTACT TARRYN ON 082 442 8621

2017 my dream became a reality and this is exactly what Madisons is all about! Madisons gives local vendors the opportunity to exhibit their passion within a retail space, at a small monthly fee, and bonus is they don't have to be there so they can focus on their core "job" while still doing what they love as a sideline business. We are BIG on supporting local, and have the widest variety of products/goods/items in our exclusive Market, prices are affordable and suitable to everyone's budget. With over 35 local vendors, we cover a range of gifts, clothing, beach and active wear, home decor, shoes, jewellery, bags, succulents, baby accessories, personalised gifts, gift hampers, pottery, shweshwe clothing and even a white elephant stall. So, if you've never been to Madisons, best you do so soonest and come frequently,

because it changes all the time ... were exciting like that! Bring a friend for coffee & cake or take your family for breakfast, or even lunch and a milkshake. Grab a take away toastie or smoothie while your on the run. We have a variety of lovely meals, and our prices range from R25 to R85. We take pride in good service and serving quality meals, "without the fancy drizzle of balsamic," making you feel relaxed and 'at home'. Our rustic, shabby chic, Café area can also be hired for any small intimate baby shower, kitchen tea, birthday or business function, where we cater according to your needs. We are open from Tuesday to Friday; 9am to 4pm and Saturdays, 9am to 1pm. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful home and hope to see you soon.️

Sunday 13 March: Outdoor Raku Workshop Raku Workshop with Mandy Qomoyi, ceramicist and former arts lecturer Yellowwood Forest, Morgan Bay Arive 9.30 for 10, until 12.30/1pm Mandy will explain the Raku process, and bring pre-made pots to decorate and prepare for firing under the trees. We'll fire them using an outdoor kiln and smoking drum. Create your own design with wax, and then watch the magic as your pot is immersed in fire, smoke, and water, and finally cools in the air. The process causes cracks in the glaze which are blackened by smoke, creating beautiful and distinctive effects. R370pp includes one pot, and more are available at R60 each Coffee, Tea and Herb Infusions will be provided for refreshment Bring a snack to share Breakfast and Lunch are available from Yellowwood Forest restaurant: (pizzas, light meals, vegetarian options, Sunday Special)
