The Pantry Market takes place on the last Saturday of every month in The Atrium of The Trumpet on Keyes building from 9:00 – 14:00.
Rosebank’s art and design district, Keyes Art Mile, has become home to a new monthly food market – The Pantry Market at Keyes. Taking place on the last Saturday morning of every month, the market specialises in small-batch, artisanal food products for you to take home and stock your pantry with. It brings to the district everything from olive oil and honey to fresh produce, charcuterie, confectionery, sourdough bread and whole grains. The next Pantry Market will take place on 28 April 2018.
The inaugural edition in March was a resounding success, with visitors flocking through the doors, and exhibitors experiencing a powerful new platform from which to sell their produce & products and share their stories.
“We have been overwhelmed by the positive response to the market, from both visitors and exhibitors,” says curator Roberta Thatcher. “This confirms what we already suspected – that people are increasingly passionate about their food and where it comes from. In light of this, The Pantry Market aims to bridge the gap between farm and fork and allow visitors to get to know the people behind the brands.”
One of the highlights of The Pantry Market is the talks programme. Each month visitors can attend a free food-related talk by an industry expert. Topics include ethical eating, reducing your plastic-use, plant-based diets, and more. The upcoming talk, on 28 April at 10h30, will be by Karen Dunn, owner of Urban Apiary, who will discuss everything from the questions you should be asking about supermarket honey, to why every city needs healthy bees, and gardening tips to promote bees.
The market is a plastic-free zone, and visitors can shop top-quality, ethically produced products in a relaxed, curated space, in which they meet the makers, sip, sample, snack and enjoy live music. They can even bring their own glass jars to fill with milk and honey. To complete the experience, breakfast and lunch are available from the several Keyes Art Mile restaurants, including BGR, MESH Club, Milk Bar and Marble. While SMAC and the TMRW gallery offer additional visual stimulus to the morning, True Design (Kartell, Moroso and Cassina), Okapi, Shelflife and Anatomy will be open for browsing and shopping.
A selection of confirmed producers include:
- Bakgat Nartjies: Nova naartjies and Eureka lemons farmed in the North West for export.
