  • Crates & Containers: Palm Hills’ Avant-Garde Pop-Up Market!


    This Friday, Palm Hills Development is welcoming one and all to its very first pop-up market, Crates and Containers, serving up a host of Egypt’s top names across food, fresh produce, fashion and more, as well as a special Kids’ Zone and an eclectic line-up of entertainment – more on the latter later.

    Egypt, of course, has a long, storied history with markets – it’s just how we’ve always rolled. There’s a charm about it and browsing, shopping and interacting within the confines of a mall just isn’t the same.

    This is something that lies at the heart of Crates & Containers; Palm Hills has always ventured to engage with communities in Cairo though innovative, and fun, projects and events and this is one market that is shaping up to be a genuinely engaging day out.

    Choosing only the best exhibitors for the all-day market, attendees can expect to be swallowed into a world of food, fashion, music and good ol’ wholesome fun. Kicking off at 11AM – and going on throughout the day till 10PM – Crates & Containers is set to welcome the over fifty exhibitors with names such as Gringos Burritos, TBS, Mori Sushi, Lettuceat, Kazouza, Potte De Crème, Foool Tank – well the list goes on.

    Is Friday your designated shopping day? No need to worry, because there’s plenty to satisfy your insatiable shopping appetite, with the likes of VNTG, Pop-Up Shop and Okhtein set to be there, amongst many more, including El Sastre, Teela and J’s Design.

    Healthy, sustainable living is one of the foundations of Palm Hills Development and that ethos is reflected through a number of exhibitors that Palm Hills are referring to as grocers and growers – think everything from Gourmet Egypt, Desert Lake Farms and El Kohdary, to Bustan, Formula Wonderful and Nature Selection.


    Beyond being a market, Crates & Containers’ entertainment line-up is looking pretty tasty. Among the performers is Egyptian singer/songwriter/superwoman, Rula Zaki, as well Buena Vista Social Club-aficionados and all-round cool cats, Los Compadres, and seductively soulful acoustic musician, Hassan Ramzy.

    In addition, Crates & Containers will also host special shows by award-winning illusionist and possible real-life wizard, Moustapha Berjaoui, as well as record-holding hoola-hooping celebrity, Marawa, who many may recognise from appearances on Britain’s Got Talent, Australia’s Got Talent and Arabs Got Talent.
