We are thrilled to announce that The Muffinz Music will grace Market @ the Sheds‘ stage as our main act this month!

Their music is new, yet so soulful, so accessible, so honest and so innocent, that it appeals to all age groups, races, classes and sexes. The Muffinz have unleashed their mysteriously beautiful world of eclectic soul to the South African public and they are set for world domination.

Market@theSheds is the Capital Collective’s monthly market-event, celebrating Art, Food, Design, Fashion and Music, aimed at showcasing the talent and initiative of people residing in Tshwane. One of the highlights of the day is the live bands that always get everyone on their feet.

The market merges the best of city markets with the flavours of South Africa’s Capital, with local entrepreneurs, designers, artists and musicians forming the bulk of the participants. It takes place every last Saturday of the month at 012central in the CBD, the trendy, multi-space precinct development by City Property – the place to be seen in the city.

The vibe of the market draws a diverse group of people from all walks of life: fashionistas, art lovers, foodies, musicians, shopaholics, tourists, explorers, trendsetters and socialites of all ages. Visitors like to hang out with friends and family and enjoy craft beer, fine wines, cocktails, gourmet food, jazzy music, design, fashion, art and interesting people.

Market lovers can also look forward to Busisiwe Mutlaka (MaryB Music) who is a young, passionate music lover and was also seen on South African hit show The Voice earlier this year.

The Festive Season in the capital just became more fun, with Market@theSheds going big at one of the city’s most beautiful locations, Freedom Park.

This year, shoppers who are looking for something different from the normal stocking filler, can explore local art, design and fashion gifts within a vibey atmosphere of music, food and drink.

Those who have been to Freedom Park, are in agreement that it is one of the most beautiful and underrated attractions in the city. The heritage site, set on 52 hectares on Salvokop Hill (between the Voortrekker Monument and Pretoria Station), overlooks the capital, offering visitors a panoramic view of Pretoria. The market will be held in the exquisite 2 000-seat amphitheatre.

With an array of more than 50 traders, music performances to indulge in, a wonderful crowd of people and tasty gourmet food, visitors won’t be disappointed.

In the spirit of the season of giving and in support of World Aids Day, market goers are encouraged to bring a gift for a child orphaned by Aids.

This original and atmospheric CBD market has been showcasing beautiful locations in the city since October 2014. Previous venues include 012Central, Pretoria Zoo, the old Fire Station, Pretoria Country Club and the old Moyo’s at Fountains Valley.

The event takes place on Saturday, 28th from 11h00 until 18h00. Entrance is R50 for adults with kids entering FREE.

The market is a project of the Capital Collective, an initiative driving public and private partnerships in aid of inner city rejuvenation.

Here’s to the end of Winter!

DSC_0411Don’t miss the Market@theSheds on 29 August. We plan to have a lot of fun in celebration of the end of the dreary season. With more than 40 stalls there won’t be a shortage of things to see, shop or taste and our line-up of musicians will be excellent, as always.

 

Despite the cold weather last month, we had a wonderful day at the Market@theSheds, showing once again that people love local and are keen to explore exciting “new” city treasures.

 

The old Fire Station is very dear to artists in- and advocates of our city. It is one of the most beautiful old buildings  in the CBD with a lot of history and tremendous potential.  Our focus on local art, design, food and music, combined with the city-wide rejuvenation drive, marks this spot as set to become a sought-after tourist attraction in the city. We will be making this our base for now, while still doing pop-up markets in between. (Watch this space!)

Come enjoy a celebration of the capital and its people with great local bands, craft beer, bubbly, wine, great food and a fine selection of artists, designers and traders.
