A market with a difference

The colourful Swakopmund Night Market, All Day Market is a win-win event for all involved
Who doesn’t love a beach day or a night of shopping under the stars without having to cover great distances to find everything you need or to satisfy your foodie indulgences?

Coastal residents and holidaymakers can look forward to another exciting edition of the Swakopmund All Day Market taking place at Tiger Reef on 21 December 2022. This event hosted on the beach by Swakopmund Night Market is an all-day event and usually takes place as a once-off, one-day event a few times a year. “It is a great opportunity for anyone attending the event to network and gets your name out there. It is also a great place to make new contacts or just catch up with friends and spend time with family in a fun, open-air and safe environment,” says Danien van Niekerk, owner and event organiser.

Registered charity organisations are welcome to join the event free of charge to raise funds or spread awareness about their objectives and product offerings. There are a certain amount of stalls sponsored to charities that wish to connect with the community. “For added value and with proper planning and preparation, we also offer our online platform for additional advertising. The stage at the event is also available (free of charge) for any charity-related performances, raffles or talks,” Van Niekerk added.

The Swakopmund All-Day Market also provides exciting entertainment coupled with an interesting and colourful market with longer operating hours, which translates to more fun in the sun. “This December we look forward to a stunt bike demonstration by Move Activity Hub. We also have more space which means that there will be more stalls – 60 to 70 to be exact. We are excited that applications come from all over Namibia, but especially from Swakop, Walvis, Henties, Omaruru and Windhoek,” Van Niekerk said.

Positive impact

The All-Day Market is especially appreciated by small business owners and musicians. “We receive a lot of gratitude from the artistic community and small businesses. The market supported and pulled them through quiet months or helped get their brands going. The community also finds value in the event which has become something that Swakopmunders, tourists and residents from other towns in Namibia, enjoy and look forward to. “How wonderful to think that you are directly and positively impacting the lives of your community by doing so and enjoying this event! At the same time, it's also a great opportunity for corporates to connect to the community and support local businesses.”
