In partnership with Gamuda Gardens, BURO is proud to #SupportLocal at our festive bazaar happening this weekend at the Glitter & Glee Festive Market. Here are six local brands and small businesses at the bazaar to check out and shop from in time for Christmas:
Oh Cha Matcha
Matcha fans, where have you been if you haven’t tried Oh Cha Matcha? The leading homegrown matcha brand specialises in premium quality matcha straight from Uji, Kyoto in Japan with no added sugar or preservatives. Besides your go-to matcha latte, the brand will also be offering an array of signature drinks and its limited edition Christmas Collection at our festive market, including Christmas Gift Boxes, Gingerbread House DIY Kit, and Chocolate Advent Calendar.
The Oil Rituels
Essential oils have been widely used in traditional medicine and scented preparations since Ancient Egyptian times, but modern advances have overshadowed their unique properties and benefits. The Oil Rituels hopes to bring back these ancient traditions into modern rituals for those seeking to find physical, mental, and spiritual bliss through the natural world. Whether you’re looking to improve sleep, calm nerves, or aid the respiratory system, the brand has an extensive range of essential oils to enhance your well-being. Shop them alongside special Christmas bundles at our market!
If you’ve been looking around for new hygge-style tableware to host your Christmas and new year home parties, check out Nom Studio’s collections. Founded by two best friends amidst the pandemic, the tableware and ceramics brand offers an assortment of kitchen and table essentials with minimal yet thoughtful designs that are pleasing to the eyes—and your Instagram feed.
Sundays with Violet
What started out as a Sunday arts and crafts activity for the founder of Sundays with Violet eventually developed into a business opportunity in December 2019. Today, she has expanded her product range from colourful bath bombs to include body scrubs that look like pretty gemstones, sanitiser sprays, candles, moisturising lotions, and more. Everything is carefully handmade and designed to inject fun and creativity, while offering a range of benefits for the skin.
Rain or shine, there’s nothing like a cold ginger beer to quench a parched throat. What’s more, ginger beer is known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties to boost the immune system. While you’ll usually have to pre-order Zangabir’s naturally carbonated, locally sourced homemade ginger beer ahead of time, you can try them fresh from the booth at our market. Flavours include Kick in the Ginger Nuts, Lemony Ginger Punch, Pandan Grass (pandan and lemongrass), and Flower Power (hibiscus).
For those who enjoy collecting succulents and home decor, you’ll want to stop by Artsology Clubs’ booth. Started amidst the pandemic, the home-based business offers a stunning array of pastel succulent pots, trays, coasters, and trinket dishes—artistically handmade from terazzo. You can also find curated gift boxes adorned with a bed of roses and decorative ornaments to house your gifts for this season of gifting.

Besides supporting local, your purchases will help Make A Difference as 10 per cent of all of the above vendors’ proceeds will go to Eats, Shoots & Root’s Sayur in the City programme in harmony with Gamuda Garden’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives and sustainability ethos.
The programme aims to equip primary school teachers with the knowledge and tools on how to guide their students in setting up an edible school garden according to their individual capacity. Each teacher will then nominate five students whom they will guide through the process with the help of Eats, Shoots & Roots. All students and teachers will receive a Grow Kit each month to try their hand at growing different types of vegetables, whilst learning their nutritional value as well as the ins and outs of planting!
The BURO X Gamuda Gardens Glitter and Glee Festive Market will be held from 2pm to 10pm on 18 and 19 December 2021.
Address: Gamuda Gardens Experience Gallery, Persiaran Gamuda Gardens 1, Bandar Gamuda Gardens, Kuang, 48050 Rawang, Selangor
