To do

1. Sample and shop for local groceries and produce


Spend time outdoors, and meet, greet and get your share of local and fresh produce at the Social Market #3. Look forward to locally-based companies that produce jams and condiments using locally-grown fruits; sell fresh, pure and raw coconut shakes; offer handcrafted soaps; and sell neighbourhood bakes.

You can also grab some grub on the go, including fresh oysters, Romanian home delights and handcrafted healthy snacks. After that, work off some calories, with the on-site complimentary Yoga and Pilates classes at 9.00am and 10.00am respectively.
