The OFC Sunset Social Market is back with a delectable state of mind! The tenth edition of the two-day market is taking its cue from the local foodie culture, zooming in on some of the city’s finest modern-day hawkers, gourmet grocers, artisanal bakers and small-batch producers, all of whom will be showcasing some truly Singaporean flavours. Once you’ve had your fill, try your hand out on shaking up a world class cocktail, make your own flower crown, or discover more about organic farming and take an Instagram-worthy shot amid OFC’s flourishing outdoor farm.
