PANTRY MARKET (FREE EVENT)
The Keyes Pantry Market returns to Rosebank on Saturday 25 May. This month we’re placing the spotlight on gut health and fermentation.
It’s no secret that gut health is essential to overall health. The gastrointestinal tract is an essential system that converts food into absorbable nutrients, stored energy and waste. But did you know that its role extends beyond digestion? In recent years, scientists have discovered the GI system is linked to numerous aspects of health, from immunity to emotional stress and chronic illnesses, including cancer and Type 2 diabetes.
At this month’s free Pantry Talk, Ché Upton of Che Gourmet will share why gut health is so important, and how we can improve it by consuming fermented foods and drinks such as Kimchi, Kraut and Kombucha. Join Ché for a free talk followed by a Q&A at 10.30am in the Mesh Cinema.
To complement Che’s talk we will have an array of fermented goods on sale at the Keyes Pantry Market. Don’t miss the Drinking Vinegars from Sweet Tea and Chickadee. Owner Natasha Robson has just returned from living in the USA and has brought the latest craze in fermented drinks along with her. Caz Kombucha will be selling their three delicious flavours of Kombucha, while Ché Gourmet’s range of Kimchi and Kraut will be available for tastings and sales.
To take advantage of Joburg’s glorious winter sun, the Pantry Market has pushed its opening times forward by an hour. Join us between 10am and 3pm to sip, snack and mingle while enjoying our line-up of live music.

THE PANTRY MARKET
The Pantry Market at Keyes is, where possible, a plastic-free zone, and visitors can bring their own baskets to fill with everything and anything needed for a wholesome, healthy home pantry. Think fresh farm eggs, delicious cheeses, artisanal breads, olive oil-soaked artichokes and olives, Italian-style charcuterie, fresh organic produce, whole grains, decadent pastries and more. Whether you’re looking for a long, lazy harvest table lunch, a wholesome midweek bowl or a decadent treat, the Pantry Market at Keyes has you covered.
As always, there will be live music and kids activities. Chocolate, coffee and champagne will be served at Afrikoa Café, and breakfast and lunch will be available from the several Keyes Art Mile restaurants, including Momo Kuro, BGR, MIX at MESH Club and Marble.
True Design (Kartell, Moroso and Cassina), Okapi and Anatomy will be open for shopping as well as the four resident art galleries – SMAC, TMRW Gallery, Everard Read and CIRCA.
