Starting January 2013, Clarke Quay in collaboration with For Flea Sake, a flea market brand, presents a series of conceptual monthly bazaars titled Clarke Quay Traders’ Market, Every Third Weekend of the Month at Clarke Quay Central Fountain Square that aims to bring a whole new shopping experience to Singapore’s top bustling F&B and entertainment hot spot.
Clarke Quay’s Traders’ Market is a lifestyle event that
promises an experience beyond pure retail. Monthly highlights are planned with
the headlining theme in mind and aims to offer fun and variety to the otherwise
standard bazaars around town. From F&B kiosks to “Live” DJs, magic shows to
free manicures and live acoustic band, there is something different and fun to
look forward to each month while you shop. (For
full 2013 calendar listing of CQ Traders’ Market, please refer to Annex A).
From a retail perspective, shoppers will be enticed to the
unique fashion pop up stores offered and catered to the nightlife goers and
tourists. On a monthly basis, the pop up stores will be refreshed according to
the theme to pique shoppers’ curiosity and build anticipation. These pop
up stores will serve a refreshing urban retail experience at Clarke Quay. Shoppers
can look forward to being pampered with a memorable, fun and frivolous shopping
Shopaholics can indulge in a clothes buffet during our
upcoming January’s “Spring Blossom Traders’ Market”. A concept in which you pay a fixed price in accordance to
the size of bag which then allows you to grab as many clothes you can stuff in.
Other offers from popular blogshops such as Cherylelle, Miss:fi:t and Le
Flirtini will feature pretty dresses that are bound to impress this Chinese New
Year. In February, we invite the singles to get into the mood of love at our “Love Actually Traders’ Market”.
Singles will purchase a gift at the market and proceed to a gift exchange
session at Note Di Sicilia, a classy premium gelato kiosk at Clarke Quay. March
is all about “FashMade” as shoppers
can participate in art workshops and candy making demostration. Other thematic
Traders’ Markets includes Earth Hour, Accessolicious, Best of Blogshops,
