Membership –>{FORM}<– 2016


The Durbanville Cultural Society (DCS) leases the Rust-en-Vrede property from the City of Cape Town.

DCS is a vibrant society operating in the arts and culture environment and is currently looking at ways to renew and invigorate awareness in the arts.

DCS is launching an open application process to let the grounds and front paved area to a market organiser for the purposes of hosting a market that will encompass the values of DCS for the benefit of both parties.



We do not want to be too prescriptive in our requirements, rather let the market operator be creative but within the following boundaries:

  1. All stalls and “events” to fall within the City of Cape Town’s (CCT) by-laws etc. (The land is owned by CCT).
  2. A cohesive market with careful attention to aesthetics.
  3. The market must support or compliment the arts and culture (including crafting, hand-made or organically produced ware etc).
  4. A sustainable market that will attract visitors on a continuous basis.
  5. The market can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly – but be aware that other markets may be interspersed, though we will not mix themes e.g. if we elect to  hold an organic produce market monthly, then any other markets will be different e.g. arts and crafts.
  6. The market operator will be required to enter into a written agreement to be negotiated.

Applications close on 31 July 2016

It is the intention of the Rust-en-Vrede committee to select the market submissions that best meet their aims and objectives and then enter into direct negotiations with the chosen market operators.   It is at this stage that finer details of the operators proposed market will be discussed and commercial particulars set down.    The process is expected to take one month and the market operators can start soonest thereafter.

The decision of the Rust-en-Vrede committee will be final and binding on all submissions.

All queries are to be addressed via email to or call 021-976 4691
