We usually love the buzz of an outdoors market, think Camden Market in London, or Bangkok’s Chatuchak Market… except, it’s impossible to be happy about jostling with a crowd in this heat. Rather than have us sweat it out though, Orchard Central ensures all the merriment of a a shopping carnival — in cool, air-conditioned comfort.

As part of this year’s Great Singapore Sale, from 29 May to 9 July, the mall’s main atrium will be transformed into a shopper’s dream, with a fleet of 14 vintage Kombis and Beetles lined up as part of the OC Car Boot Carnival, all in a lush green setting. To further add to the atmosphere of the carnival, you can also enjoy live band performances by local artists during the music sessions, which will happen across all the four weekends in June.

The event is set to garner a spot in the Singapore’s Book of Records as the Largest Vintage Car Bazaar, and you can be right in the thick of it too. There’s everything, from food to fashion to lifestyle products; we’re looking at first-time vendors such as popular Japanese lifestyle brand TOKYU HANDS, bistro food chain Real Food, cold-pressed juice label HIC Juice, and local fashion brand Pleatation.

Regular favourites include Japanese confectionary ShiokJapan!, DEAN & DELUCA, quirky lifestyle products from TotallyHotStuff™, nut butters from The Hunters’ Kitchenette and more. Naturally, the rest of the in-store tenants will also be having enticing promotions, so it makes sense to check them out too.
