You would have to have been living under a rock to not have heard the exciting news about a farmer’s market opening at The Grandstand (previous Turf City) in Bukit Timah. We were initially promised a March 2013 opening date for PasarBella, which has now been updated to an optimistic-sounding “Spring 2013” on their Facebook page. When we visited the actual site last week, some businesses are trading already, but the vast majority are still totally shrouded, and a nosy peek behind the scenes led us to believe that full opening isn’t exactly imminent (with some stalls looking like they haven’t even been started yet). So what do we know so far about what will be at PasarBella, and what’s open already? Here’s the full list of tenants!
Balloon Blasters – open now!
Bonheur Patisserie – open now!
Da Paolo Gastronomia
Dutch Colony Coffee – open now!
Oceans of Seafood
Poika & Tytar – open now!
Poppy Flora Studio
Rabbit Carrot Gun
SaladStop! Gardens at PasarBella
Seventh Heaven Artisanal Desserts
The 1872 Clipper Tea Company – open now!
The Cheese Ark
The Great Beer Experiment – open now!
The Organic Grocer
While there has been a bit of grumbling about the fact that there are some bigger name brands among the tenants, rather than just purely farmers and artisans like expected, we’re excited by the range on offer and are excited to get our shop on. We’ll bring you more news as we have it — fingers crossed it will be soon!
