PANTRY MARKET (FREE EVENT)
Spring into Summer at the Keyes Pantry Market
Jozi is positively blooming at the moment, which is why there’s no better way to spend your Saturday than shopping fresh, artisanal produce and enjoying live music in the sun at the Keyes Pantry Market this Saturday 28 September.
Local band Beukes & Delaney will entertain you while you fill your basket with everything from oven-fresh bread to seasonal veg, charcuterie, cheeses, sustainably harvested honey and more.
On the topic of sustainability, chef James Diack, owner of Coobs, Il Contadino, La Stalla and Douglas + Hale, will give a free talk on one of the topics he feels most passionate about – provenance and sustainability. James is committed to providing a world-class experience in all his restaurants from nose-to-tail, root-to-leaf, beginning-to-end, that hopes to inspire others to live more conscious and sustainable lives. Come and meet the chef as he shares tips on how you can lead a more sustainable life – without sacrificing on taste.
The talk will take place at MESH Club at 11am on Saturday 28 September and is free to the public.
THE PANTRY MARKET AT KEYES
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 locally harvested honey, delicious cheeses, artisanal breads, Italian-style charcuterie, seasonal organic produce, Arabic pies, whole grains, decadent pastries, fresh-cut flowers and more.
As usual, visitors will be able to drop off their eco-bricks at the market, as well as empty 2-litre bottles for other visitors to fill. The bricks will be collected by ADVA, an NGO that uses eco-bricks to build benches for schools in disadvantaged areas.
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. Don’t miss out on a gelato from Mini Kuro while enjoying live music and Jozi sun at the market.
True Design (Kartell, Moroso and Cassina) and Okapi will be open for shopping as well as the four resident art galleries – SMAC, TMRW Gallery, Everard Read and CIRCA. And if you are in need of some pampering, new to the Keyes Art Mile family is TenFold nail salon, where, in keeping with the Precinct’s ethos, all products are natural and non-toxic.
