Cultured Curation at Traders Market, Publika.

Weekends are usually for grocery runs so how about taking a detour to Boulevard at Publika for the Traders Market for a change? Here is the dirt on the deed!

This coming weekend, Publika is playing host to the first installment of Traders Market where you have an array of homegrown brands and entrepreneurs selling homemade and local goods to the wider public!

It is a perfect treat if you have any house party to attend this weekend because a cake is always a good idea for a party potluck.

ChacoPolish is also a unique sell at this market because it is actually an all-natural teeth whitener which has a rave online reviews already. This concentrated black paste is preservative-free and non-abrasive that is effective in removing stains on teeth caused by coffee, tea, wine, food colouring and tobacco without harming the enamel.

If you are hunting for jewelry, Sillynuts is also doing a pop-up here at the market where they offer handmade jewelry using hex nuts and genuine leather elements. At Sillynuts, every piece is unisex and unique, thus there is always something for everyone here.

Shopaholics will be thrilled as the market feature variety of lifestyle vendors. Paradeso Decor and Sambal Enak will be teaming up to showcase their collection on the artisanal Asian lifestyle.

CHIYO is another vendor you shouldn’t miss if you love purposeful fashion . Their Batik Series is their current bestseller, designed for our humid weather it is suitable for all ages. Speaking of all ages, we wish Kooshboo Kids come in adult sizes. Founder Natasha Navin created this trendy line out of frustration of difficulty in finding cute clothes for her children. Kooshboo is also available at Traders Market, so make sure you bring your young ones too for a little shopping spree.

Fashion aside, art and decoratives are a big thing at the market. If you’re a fan of Kuen Stephanie, you are in luck. Local artist Kuen Stephanie is known for richly detailed in vivid colours and her trademark – the figures have lines that define their eyebrows and noses, but nothing else.
