The Linden Market

The Linden Market is an authentic pop up market taking place on the 3rd of December 2016 in the heart of Linden, Johannesburg. It began as a small Christmas market in 2015 as an alternative to traditional flea markets, with a strong focus on providing a platform for #supportlocal artisans and food vendors to showcase and sell their unique handcrafted products.

Join them on 4th  avenue where we will be closing off the street for a festive market day that everyone can enjoy. There will be loads of #madelocal food and products as well as fun activities to keep the kids entertained. Our goal is to encourage people to #swapmallsformarkets and come enjoy a beautiful day of music, wine and design out in the sun while #bringingitbacktothesuburbs & creative #diyideas.

The Linde Market aim to provide an environment for people of the same community to interact with one another and experience an authentic  #streetfestival together.

At The Linden Market, we believe in the true #Ubuntu spirit and are so excited to be able to #giveback to our community and provide a platform where others can actively participate in uplifting their community. Our corporate social investment is directed at job creation, supporting local NPOs and local entrepreneurs. NPOs are offered discounted rates with at least one NPO per market qualifying for a free stand, while local workers are employed throughout our entire process, from pre-market admin to support staff, car guards and clean-up crews on the day.  Our partnership with Hoerskool Linden has also provided us with the opportunity to support and help this local school by means of fundraising. Preference is given to vendors that employ local workers and use local materials.

The Linden Market application process is very thorough to ensure that there is something for everyone to enjoy. Marketgoers can expect a wide range of unique #madelocal products featuring everything from clothing, jewellery, furniture, ceramics and décor to 100% natural skincare products and much more. There will also be plenty of delicious edibles on sale including French cuisine, craft beer, food trucks, and many other tasty treats to tantalise your taste buds. Visit champagne lane where you will be spoilt for choice with our collection of Stellenbosch vineyard wines, bubbly and Arniston Bay Infusions.
