The market aims to be a family-focused event targeting anybody and everyone, from young families to teenagers and adults. Market-goers can choose whether to attend on Friday evening and dine under the Sandton skyline or grab brunch at the Saturday morning trade. There will be a line-up of eight of Jozi’s most loved food trucks, live DJs, kiddies activities, E-scooter tours, a craft bar, and a secret rooftop experience. 

The stellar line-up of food trucks will have you drooling and spoilt for choice, with street food by Paul’s Homemade Ice Cream, Tjips Co, Killer Coffee, Napz Autentica Pizza Napoletana, The Wing Republic, Lumamonate, and Wine Tap in attendance.

On the music front, there will be a curated line-up of local selectors such as Diddy Q, Bon Bon Vie and Housecatz to name a few. 

Guests can also make use of the E-scooter tour experience with a discount on all scooter rides purchased on the market days, thanks to the Honest Travel Experience. 

Tickets are available via Quicket and can be purchased at the entrance on Fredman Drive, Sandton at R30 per adult, while admission for kids under 12 years old is free.

  2. Pauls Homemade Ice Cream
