Held from 25 - 27 May and 1 - 3 June at the Bayfront Event Space, this highly Insta-worthy container market is themed ‘Oasis’ this year and boasts a wide range of local and regional vendors.

Breathing fresh air into the variety of bazaars that have sprung up in the month of Ramadan, Artbox has plenty of halal food options to offer for your iftar too! So here’s our pick of the top 8 stalls that’ll make you want to visit Artbox ?

1. NaughtyBoyz

Ever craved for the mac ‘n cheese you see in your favourite American TV shows? Well, these 'boyz' got you covered. NaughtyBoyz is a home-based mac ‘n cheese delivery that puts a twist to this comfort food with their own special sauce!

Takoyaki’s almost like the quintessential market food, and these ones are undoubtedly saiko (the best)! Serving up Japanese street food realness, their takoyakis are served in sizeable portions with full bite-sized octopus – much like the ones you’ll find in Osaka! So be sure to save a date for Artbox if you’re ready to get ‘Saiko’?
