As a follow up of the usual First Thursdays, Keyes Art Mile in Rosebank will be launching a new monthly artisanal food market.
The Pantry Market at Keyes will take place one Saturday every month and will offer small-batch, artisanal products; from olive oil and honey to fresh produce, charcuterie, confectionery, sourdough bread, and cut flowers.
Here’s what to expect:
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 first talk, on 24 March at 10h30, will be by Brad Meiring, owner of Munching Mongoose organic box scheme, who will discuss how we have become disconnected from our food, and how the dinner table is the perfect platform for us and our kids to learn about what we eat, and respect the value food plays in our lives.
Breakfast and lunch are available from the several Keyes Art Mile restaurants, including BGR, MESH Club, Milk Bar and Marble, while SMAC Gallery and the building’s exciting retail offerings are open for browsing and shopping.
The Pantry Market takes place monthly in The Atrium of the Trumpet Building on Keyes – 21 Keyes Avenue, Rosebank, Johannesburg.
The first edition of The Pantry Market is on Saturday 24 March, from 9:00 – 14:00.
Exhibitors will include: Botanicus (fresh flowers); Create Deli (olives and preserves); Darling Sweet (honey, salt and toffee); Dolci Café (Italian pastries and fresh pasta); Esposito Natural Foods (charcuterie); Gudgu (cordials); Kula Organics (fresh, organic produce); Lorian’s Cheeses (artisan local cheeses); Ono Eatery (Poke bowls); The Chocolatiers (chocolate); Treviso Café (sourdough bread); Yococo (vegan ice-cream); The Munching Mongoose (Fresh Produce).
