For the month of May, the Artcaffé Market invites Nairobians to discover the flavours and flair of Italian culture and cuisine exclusively at Rhapta Square.
The Artcaffé Market and Market Cellar have been transformed into a wonderland filled with scenes, products, and experiences from Italy. Shoppers will be able to discover, taste, and take home authentic and traditional Italian items, from pasta and prosecco to gelato and pizza, cheese and wine, and more.
Each week in May will showcase different tasting experiences and events to bring to life the diverse nature of Italian cuisine, including Italian street food, pizza and beer, the art of Apertivo, and many more. (View our calendar for the complete schedule.)
To mark the start of this delightful month, the Artcaffé Market hosted Deputy Head of Mission – Italian Embassy to Kenya Mrs. Gambacorta, and other notable guests for an afternoon of ‘la dolce vita’ on Friday 6th May.
Sagi Vaknin, CEO of the Artcaffé Group also noted “Italian food has the ability to bring people together. By curating the best experiences and providing the most authentic products, Nairobi residents will be able to recreate the spirit of la dolce vita at home, in true Artcaffé style.”
He further highlighted “this marks the first of many cultural experiences planned for the Artcaffé Market. Rhapta Square will become an essential destination for food enthusiasts to discover and delight in the many cuisines from around the world.”
The Month of Italy runs from 1st May to 31st May 2022 exclusively at the Artcaffé Market, Rhapta Square. Open seven days a week from 6.30 am-midnight.
