Hello Joburgers, everyone’s looking to drink seasonally right now. While you can sip a margarita…
We love shopping and we love a good market, and are really excited to head through to The Pantry Market this Saturday to get our shopping on! The Pantry Market will take place at the Keyes Art Mile in Rosebank and will be happening once a month – with the very first iteration taking place this weekend on Saturday 24th March.
The market will be specialising in all sorts of yummy goodies such as small-batch, artisanal products, and will bring to the district everything from olive oil and honey to fresh produce, charcuterie, confectionery, sourdough
bread and cut flowers. Yummy!
These are our Top 5 Reasons for heading through to the Pantry Market this weekend…
Locally sourced produce
All produce sold at the market is locally sourced, meaning that that you get to meet the farmers that have grown your veg, or the baker that has made your bread – how awesome is that?
The team at the Pantry Market want to shorten the supply chain and ensure that you know where your food is from, what conditions it was grown in or made under, all the while getting to know the producers of the delicious goods you take home! Cool.
Every month there will be a different and free food-related talk by an industry expert. Topics will include things like ethical eating, how to reduce your plastic usage, eating more plant-based diets, and loads more…
This Saturday’s talk will be by Brad Meiring, owner of Munching Mongoose organic box scheme, who will discuss how we have become disconnected from our food, and how the dinner table is the perfect platform for us and our kids to learn about what we eat, and respect the value food plays in our lives.
You doesn’t want to learn a epic new skill that they can use? If you are keen to join in the workshops and learn everything from bread-making to fermenting your own foods – then this is the place for you, Hello Joburgers.
A ‘Moveable Feast”
A Moveable Feast, is a stand that will feature top local chefs who will be creating a unique product which will be sold exclusively at the market.
“The idea is that visitors can purchase an item from a favourite chef to take home and enjoy,” says organiser Roberta Thatcher. “Think pantry goods from Andrea Burgener of The Leopard, a selection of marmalades from Jacques Erasmus of Hemelhuijs’s personal citrus garden, and loads more.”
Delicious foodie treats
Some, and we mean, some (so theres loads more) of the cool folk that will be selling include: Botanicus (fresh flowers), Create Deli (olives and preserves), Darling Sweet (honey, salt and toffee), Esposito Natural Foods (charcuterie), Kula Organics (fresh, organic produce); Lorian’s Cheeses (artisan local cheeses), Yococo (vegan ice-cream) and a whole heap more. We are totally skipping dinner on Friday night in preparation for Saturday!
