One of South Africa's most popular markets, The Linden Market, is back at the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens in Emmarentia on Sat, Sep 2 and Sun, Sep 3, and bigger than ever. The latest addition to The Linden Market is the new 'Pre-Loved is Re-Loved Block', a partnership with Goethe-Institut dedicated exclusively to pre-loved items.Usually taking place every three months, The Linden Market is all about "swapping malls for markets" and is geared as a platform for makers, designers, musicians and entrepreneurs. With the addition of the Pre-Loved section, the market is looking to deepen its commitment to promoting sustainable shopping and conscious living. Expect many incredible finds – from furniture to fashion, books and accessories – that can be picked up second-hand. We're excited about this section, designed to make thrift shopping even more fun.
Celebrating artisanal traditions, local talent, creativity, craft food and drinks, and ethical shopping, The Linden Market is always a lively and sociable event held in one of Joburg's premier green spaces, with crafting workshops, live music and loads of stalls providing entertainment to keep you busy all day. The addition of the Upcycle & Repair Express Pop-Up for the spring will make the market the ideal place to find pre-loved clothing and give your older items a new look. Find out more about the upcoming market and what you can expect here.
