Despite unfavourable weather conditions at NAMPO Park, Grain SA was still able to host a very successful OFM NAMPO Park Christmas Market this year, from 24 – 27 November, with more than 2 000 visitors over the four days.
A record number of 125 exhibitors participated in the OFM NAMPO Park Christmas Market this year. Exhibitions were of high quality and the organisers attempted to place a wide and diverse range of exhibitions within the COVID-19 regulations.
Positive feedback was mostly received from exhibitors and food stall owners, indicating good business was done despite the weather not playing along every day.
Grain SA & OFM joined hands this year and OFM has been appointed as the official media partner of the OFM NAMPO Park Christmas Market. This partnership resulted in the Christmas market being advertised and presented on a larger and more professional platform this year.
The organizers further decided to expand the men's section of the market with exhibitors of outdoor and camping equipment, braais, car & motorcycle exhibits. This resulted in a more families visiting the Christmas market this year.
The Oja Dis Soja! Ladies Morning was presented on Thursday and Friday and hosts Jannie & Riëtte elaborated on the incredible health benefits of human soy consumption whilst selling some of their soy products.
"Our goal is not to go bigger but better, and to offer the experience to visitors on an ongoing basis to such an extent that they want to come back the next year," Toit Wessels, Ass Manager of NAMPO Park said.
The date for next year's OFM NAMPO Park Christmas Market is set for 23 - 26 November 2022.
