The Linden Market Christmas Edition – What to look forward to

Enjoy your Christmas shopping in the Botanical Gardens and SHOP LOCAL at TLM

 

Christmas… Sleigh bells ringing, snowflakes falling, nativity scenes, ice sculptures. Not quite! But at The Linden Market Christmas Edition we celebrate our summer Christmas, the sunshine and holiday season in a truly South African way!

TLM Christmas edition will delight with an array of original gift ideas and other novelties; quality local handmade crafts, jewelry, clothing, accessories, stocking fillers, mouthwatering food and delicious drinks, to quench your summer thirst. Assorted items in the yellow dot sale range will have a 20% discount. You can also buy your discounted two-day pass, so why not skip the busy malls and bring the family to enjoy your Christmas shopping experience.

 

The Linden Market Christmas Edition Dates

 

The Linden Market will celebrate the season with Christmas Carols in the Garden during 12:00-14:00 every day on 30 November and 1 December at the home of TLM, The Botanical Gardens, Emmarentia. Take a break from your shopping in the heat of the day and come and join in the festive sounds of Christmas Carols, situated in the shaded area by Date-a-Dog. There you can enjoy crisp, cold bubbly and gin as well as tasty delicacies, or relax at the mobile spa.

In the spirit of the festivities, there will be a cookie making workshop. Spend some quality time with the kids and make your own creative Christmas cookies to enjoy, or perhaps give away as personalised gifts.

The TLM Lineup promises to kick the holiday season off with a bang. You can look forward to the likes of Rubber Duc, Georgetown band, Jack and June and Brother Brother, all the way from Cape Town.

Benji & Moon, Date-a-Dog with CLAW will once again bring their gorgeous dogs to spend the day at TLM… take a homeless puppy for a walk through the gardens, to raise awareness around the “adopt don’t shop” mentality, especially during the festive season.

While Mom shops and Dad enjoys a cold one, the kids will be entertained by Father Christmas on stilts, a jumping castle, slime-making (eeuw, but they love it), canvas painting and face painting.

Bring your family, friends, acquaintances or even your colleagues for a year-end celebration and enjoy the truly magical atmosphere, making for unforgettable shared moments.

What’s new at The Linden Market Spring Edition

New partnerships, new ventures and new memories at TLM Spring!

Spring is in the air and the Linden Market is around the corner on Saturday the 28th of September. Come celebrate the new season as the home of TLM, the Botanical Gardens in Emmarentia, come to life. We have so many exciting new endeavours for the upcoming market that we would love to share with you.

 

CLASSICS IN THE GARDEN WITH CLASSIC 1027

In line with celebrating the new season, The Linden Market is also celebrating two very exciting new partnerships. We are thrilled to announce Classic1027 as our media partner. Classic 1027 has recently rebranded and is all about making the great Classical music genre more accessible. Introducing a more chilled out space in the gardens to the market, Classic1027 is bringing a 6-piece orchestra who will be playing the classics and some popular music that you might recognise. Classics in the Garden will take place between 12:00-14:00 on the day – and will be a tranquil beautiful space, where you can drink some gins or bubbly, have some cheese and wine, admire some art or perhaps even a massage at our mobile spa.

PLANET OR PLASTIC WITH NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

With TLM going green at the Winter Edition, we are looking forward to hosting National Geographic’s Planet or Plastic initiative at the Spring Edition and hope to educate people on how to change behaviour, reduce and ultimately eliminate single use plastic, as well as increase awareness around the plastic crisis. Come make your pledge at the Planet or Plastic pledge desk and receive a free Consol water bottle, if you produce proof of a ‘plastic-free alternative’ purchase on the day.

At 8:00 on market day, National Geographic and Consol together with TLM will be hosting a clean-up of the gardens. will be hosting a clean-up of the Botanical Gardens and surrounding area. All volunteers will receive free entry to the market, as well as a free Consol water bottle. Rubbish bags will be provided. All you need to do is bring your own gloves and meet at the ticketing gate, to become a TLM Clean Up Ambassador and make a difference in your community.

 

YOGA IN THE PARK

Also starting at 8:00 is Yoga in the Park. Bring your yoga mat and come breath in the fresh Spring air before you enjoy a delicious coffee and breakfast when the market opens at 9:00.

 

DATE-A-DOG

 The old TLM favourite Date-a-Dog initiative brought to you by CLAW and Benji and Moon, will be moving to Classics in the Garden so that the pups can enjoy the classics and the art in a quieter, less stressful environment. As TLM is passionate about supporting local charities, this time around The Santa Shoebox Project will also be taking part in the market. It doesn’t have to be Christmas to make a difference in a child’s life.  The Santa Shoebox Project is a charity organisation supporting less fortunate children across our country, with teams throughout the whole of SA. 

SHOP LOCAL AT OVER 150 STALLS

With over 150 incredibly talented vendors (some old favourites and some exciting new ones), there definitely is something for everyone from incredible handmade jewellery to swimwear and sarongs, the cutest one-of-a-kind baby-grows, to authentic leather accessories and shoes. With spring in the air, we will also have beautiful flowers and plants, deliciously crisp and cold wine, bubbly and beer, as well as a range of delicious food that will make your mouth water.

 SPRING ENTERTAINMENT LINEUP

The Linden Market is a place for friends and families to spend a day in the gardens, reconnect and have a good time. As always the lineup promises to entertain, showcasing some of the greatest talent in the South African Music scene. Jack & June will get you in the mood with their sweet melodies and the happy tunes of Bad Peter will surely get your feet moving. One of our absolute favorites and we are sure yours too – Georgetown will end the day off with a bang. While parents enjoy the entertainment, TLM always has some fun things to do for the kids like arts and crafts, face painting, jumping castle, bungee trampoline and much more.

National Geographic and Consol making a difference at The Linden Market Spring Edition

DO YOU CHOOSE PLANET OR PLASTIC?

Planet or Plastic? is National Geographic’s multiyear effort to raise awareness about the global plastic trash crisis. Come to The Linden Market on 28 September to learn more, find out what you can do to reduce your own single-use plastics and take your pledge.

 The Linden Market is truly thrilled to be partnering with National Geographic and Consol. In 2019 TLM started the process of going green and reducing our carbon footprint to create a more sustainable event. We are excited about the challenge to cultivate a culture at TLM, to completely eliminate the use of single-use plastics at the market, but we also understand that this is a journey to truly make a difference and not a once-off marketing exercise.

 That is why this partnership with National Geographic is so important to us, working together for a bigger purpose and creating awareness about the state of our planet. During this activation at TLM, National Geographic hopes to make people aware of the global plastic crisis, how to change behaviour, reduce and ultimately eliminate single use plastic. Come make your pledge at the Planet or Plastic pledge desk, take selfie in front of the iconic yellow NatGeo border and receive a free Consol drinking bottle, if you produce proof of a ‘plastic-free alternative’ purchase on the day.

 

Planet or Plastic pledge

In an article in the National Geographic Magazine in June 2018, Planet or Plastic, written by Laura Parker and Elizabeth Royte with photography by Randy Olsen, you get a world-wide perspective on the history of everyday plastics and the implications of today’s explosion of throw-away plastics (really good reading). Some interesting and scary facts in the same article, really brings home the damage that plastic causes and drives this need of making changes to our daily lives even more:

  • Since our plastic world began, we have produced about 9.2 billion tons of plastic, of which nearly 6.9 billion tons are now waste and of that, 6.3 billion tons has never been recycled.
  • “Virtually half the plastic ever manufactured has been made in the past 15 years.”
  • A plastic grocery bag is used for an average of 15 minutes but may live in the environment for hundreds of years. And there are very few recycling plants that will accept plastic produce bags. 

To learn more about this initiative and the work that is being done around the plastic crisis, go the website 

 Photographer Joel Sartore says: “I want people to take care, to fall in love, and to take action.” TLM and National Geographic has taken action and is giving you the chance to do the same, on Saturday the 28th of September with a clean-up drive. National Geographic, together with Consol and TLM will be hosting a clean-up of the Botanical Gardens. The clean-up will take place at 8:00am before the market starts ,till 9:00am and all volunteers will receive free entry to the market, as well as a free Consol water bottle. Rubbish bags will be provided. All you need to do is bring your own gloves and pitch, to become a TLM Clean Up Ambassador and make a difference in your community.

 As you have probably seen on billboards around the country, Consol is not only passionate about glass, but also about making a difference. Watch this incredibly clever and moving video produced by National Geographic for the Planet or Plastic campaign in partnership with Consol.

 Consol will also be The Linden Market Spring Edition’s official water vendor, selling icy cold water in their beautiful Consol glass bottles. As they say: the best things come in glass.

 Bring the whole family to the Botanical Gardens Emmarentia, to enjoy this beautiful country of ours, not only to have fun, but making a difference as we do so.

Classics in the Gardens at The Linden Market Spring Edition, brought to you by Classic1027

THE LINDEN MARKET and Classic1027 bring Classical music to the people
The Linden Market Classics in the Garden

The end of winter’s chill is in sight and the return of warm sunshine, budding blossoms and singing birds are around the corner… so is The Linden Market on the 28th of September.

Celebrating the new season, TLM is delighted to announce  Classic1027 as our media partner. Not only will Classic1027 bring a new, fresh element to TLM, but we are also introducing a new space to the market (which we will tell you more about in a bit).

Classic 1072 has recently launched the re-branding of South Africa’s only commercial Classical Music Radio Station and their main aim is to make Classical Music accessible to all South Africans. As huge classical music fans ourselves we believe that the platform TLM provides, combined with Classic1027’s vision, that The Linden Market Spring Edition is the perfect place to breathe new life into this incredible genre. Classic1027 CEO, Lyndon Johnstone says that Classical Music might be old, but it definitely need not be old-fashioned. And we wholeheartedly agree.

As TLM has grown from strength to strength over the past few years with market-goers streaming in and chilling under the shaded area, enjoying the food and entertainment, we wanted to create another space in the beautiful Botanical Gardens of Emmarentia. This new space is to your right as you enter the market, where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the main market area and enjoy the beautiful sounds of a six piece symphony.

Classics in the Garden, brought to you by Classic1027 between 12:00-14:00 on Saturday the 28th of September. This six piece orchestra will entertain with everything from modern classics to much-loved favourites by the classical masters.

One of the biggest attractions of TLM, Date-A-Dog and CLAW, will be moving to the new space, as classical music is just as stimulating and relaxing for pups, as it is for people…

YoYo Ma, Chinese-American cellist and child prodigy, performing and playing the cello from the age of four and a half said: “Classical music is one of the best things that ever happened to mankind. If you get introduced to it in the right way, becomes your friend for life.” This is why we are so excited about partnering with Classic1027, as we truly want to bring “one of the best things that ever happened to mankind” to TLM.

So bring your kids, grandma, uncle and your furry friends to enjoy this great gift, under the trees of the gardens, while you enjoy your lunch or a sparkling glass of bubbly.

REMEMBER!

Flashbacks to The Linden Market Winter Edition

A trip down TLM Winter Edition memory lane

 

The TLM Winter Edition has come and gone and what an incredible day it was. TLM would like to thank each and every person who came out and supported the market – you made the day what it was.

Incredibly beautiful and creative products by our amazing vendors

It was a chilly morning for everybody involved behind the scenes setting up in the dark, but once the sun came out it almost felt like spring day. Once again it was our awesome TLM vendors who stole the show with their incredible creative products whether it was food, drinks, clothing, shoes, decor items, jewellery or some delicious deli products – it all looked beautiful and of the highest quality.

More topclass products by our incredible vendors

The Kidpreneur initiative, sponsored by Everblock was a roaring success. Our first ever Kidpreneurs started trading at 11:00 and blew us away with their creativity and entrepreneurship and of course their cuteness. Should your child be interested in being a Kidpreneur at the Spring Edition on 28 September please fill out an online application.

Everblock built the stalls for our first Kidpreneurs

For the kids who were just there to have some fun there was loads to do between the bungi-trampolene, face-painting-stiltmen, crafts, jumping castle, train and tyre toys.

Old TLM favourite Date-a-Dog with Benji + Moon was there and even though no puppies were adopted, R7405,40 were raised in donations for CLAW. Thank you TLM-goers for your generosity. Date-a-Dog and CLAW will be back at our Spring Edition – so if in the meantime you are looking for a furry addition to your family – please adopt, don’t shop and contact CLAW.

TLM is dog friendly

In the entertainment lineup, there was some TLM first-timers who kept the crowds entertained. Electronic duo Luca and Tim all the way from Cape Town first took to the stage and was the perfect start to a sunny winters day. Following the duo was Marimba band Coal Train who got the crowd up and dancing. The day ended off on a high note by 6-piece band Sea of Green, who captivated the crowd till closing time.

Wonderful lineup of artists who entertained the crowd

Our going-green initiative took off with flying colours (thank you to everybody buying into our initiative) and everybody loved the TLM-branded SWIG cups. We won’t stop here, but will continue to make the market greener and more environmentally friendly – with your help of course.

The TLM golfcarts was a hit so if you missed out on your free ride, remember to park in the safe parking at Rooseveldt High, walk the short distance to the Botanical gardens gate and grab a lift with our awesome TLM-cart-drivers in future (remember to take a selfie!).

It truly was a jam packed day and we have so much more in stall for our Spring Edition on 28 September 2019 so watch this space…

THE LINDEN MARKET PARTNERS WITH EverBlock®

#TLM Kidpreneur initiative brought to you by EverBlock®

TLM is passionate about supporting young (actually any) entrepreneurs and small business enterprizes and so TLM introduced the first ever Kidpreneur initiative at the Winter Edition.

EverBlock® jumped on board to make this initiative look beautiful, memorable and exciting. EverBlock® is a Life-Sized Modular Building Block (oversized plastic blocks), That Allows You To Build Nearly Anything, which in this case will be the stalls for our Kidpreneurs. No tools are required for installation or removal and best of all, when building walls, props, or displays there is none of the dirt and debris associated with traditional construction.

Mockup Image of Everblock stalls

 

Anything you’ve built can be taken apart and re-assembled again, and the pieces can be re-used to construct other objects, making EverBlock® a unique green building method which is great, as this also supports TLM going green this winter. EverBlock®  also offer rentals and sales as well as design and installation services.  They consult on large scale or complex projects and provide customized solutions to meet your needs.

Come support our first, brave little Kidpreneurs on Saturday 13 July at The Botanical Gardens, Emmarentia and check out the impressive stall structures by EverBlock®. Get your online tickets here to skip the queues. Gates open at 9:00 and Kidpreneurs start trading at 11:00. See you there!

 

 

THE LINDEN MARKET IS GOING GREEN

Calling all vendors and customers to “reduce, reuse and recycle”as #TLM is going green.

The Linden Market is going green this winter and we are really excited about this new challenge to reduce our carbon footprint even further to create a more sustainable event. Straws became the first taboo at #TLM a couple of seasons ago, but now we want to take it to the next level. We call on all our stall holders and customers to support this initiative so that we can make an impact together.

YourDictionary defines going green as making more environmentally friendly decisions such as to “reduce, reuse and recycle.” There are simple steps we can take and eco-friendly alternatives available, to drastically reduce the negative impact our market has on the environment. To quote a #consciouslivingsouthafrica post “we don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly; we need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”

Our first order of duty for the upcoming market was to get rid of plastic cups and partner with SWIG CUPS. SWIG CUPS is a company that makes earth-friendly, reusable cups. There will be different stations around the market that sell these cups to market-goers for R10. Customers have the option to either return the cups at the end of the day and get their R10 deposit back, or they can keep the TLM-branded cup as a keep-sake. Customers will then visit stalls with their cups and have their drinks poured into them. There will also be promoters and stations where customers can get their cups rinsed.

The Linden Market Recycling Cup

Paper, cans and glass are welcome as we will have recycling bins readily available at TLM Winter Edition. We ask everybody to please be conscientious and use these bins mindfully.

In terms of our vendors, we know that at first, going green with packaging might be a costly exercise, but in the end it will be an investment in our future. As we at TLM also had to do some research, we came across some cool blogs that gave us insights and ideas and we would love to share these packaging ideas with you.

According to the blog LoveToKnow corn starch is ideal for all types of food packaging and has no negative impact on the environment. Cardboard and paper are biodegradable, recyclable, and reusable. Biodegradable plastic when exposed to sunlight decomposes and bubble wrap made out of recycled polyethylene is fully degradable

JohnsByrne suggests rethinking your packaging. Although it isn’t possible with all items, many brands have found creative ways to reduce the size or alter the shape of their products, to curb or eliminate the need for packaging. If you don’t want to go that route why not source and brand your own reusable bag?

Think Step also has a few ideas for sustainable packaging trends such as one of the basics, replacing plastics with paper bags. We are really excited to get to see your out-of-the-box ideas in terms of packaging and how to make The Linden Market more sustainable. We cannot do this alone, but together we can make a huge difference.

We look forward to having each and every one of you at TLM Winter Edition on 13 July 2019 at The Botanical Gardens, Emmarentia. Get your “paperless” tickets here to avoid the queues.

 

CALLING ALL KIDPRENEURS TO THE LINDEN MARKET WINTER EDITION!!!!

 

Smart kids with smart ideas at #TLM

 

Kids are so creative and come up with the coolest ideas. We at The Linden Market are so passionate about supporting entrepreneurs and small business enterprises, that involving the kids just came as the natural, next step.

We believe that encouraging the next generation to make their business ideas a reality, has far reaching benefits beyond just making money. There are critical life skills (problem solving the most prevalent) to be learnt when children are encouraged and supported, to start their own business.

President Cyril Ramaphosa (an entrepreneur himself) recently called for entrepreneurship to be included in the school curriculum at the Global Entrepreneurship Congress at the Sandton Convention Centre. He said “there is much more we can do. Entrepreneurship must be part of the school curriculum, so that young people must from an early age be encouraged to be problem solvers.”

Why wait for schools to introduce entrepreneurship? Let’s start now! Think big, think out of the box, think creatively, find a gap and hone in on that. Pair this with your child’s interests, hobbies and strengths and assist them in bringing their business concepts to life.

On 13 July 2019 at The Linden Market Winter Edition our Kidpreneur initiative will be launched. There are 15 spots open for the Kidpreneurs to come and trade with their own mobile business. A stall space cost R50, payable once chosen. Click on the Kidpreneur application link, fill out the application and we will get back to you soon to let you know if you have a spot…

The Linden Market, Winter Edition, Calling all Kidpreneurs

We hope all the Kidpreneurs out there are as excited as we are!

Make sure you support the kids at The Linden Market Winter Edition on Saturday 13 July at Botanical Gardens Emmarentia, 45 Thomas Bowler street. Gates open 9:00 – 16:00. General Tickets cost R30, pensioners pay R15, Kids under 12 (and your puppies) enter free. To avoid the queues get your tickets here. Please don’t park your car along the street. Remember that we provide SAFE parking at Roosevelt High across the road for R20. Proceeds go to the school. See you there!

 

 

A throwback to The Linden Market Autumn Edition ’19

What a beautiful Autumn day it was in true TLM STYLE…

After the original date was postponed due to the rain, the 18th of May finally arrived for TLM Autumn edition and what a beautiful autumn day it was. With market goers streaming in throughout the day to enjoy the Joburg sunshine – it truly was a great family event.

The Linden Market, Autumn crowdAt 9:00 all our amazing vendors were ready to trade, their stalls beautifully set up and their products of the highest quality, delighting as always.

Nariska was first up on stage – her soothing voice paving the way for the energetic Steve Umculo. Old Linden Market favorites, Georgetown then took the stage and ended the day of with a blast.

In-between our incredible talent on stage, we had salsa interludes, presented by more talented people of a different kind… Estilo Cubano taught us some salsa moves and even the little ones joined (so cute, our hearts melted).

Benji + Moon’s Date-a-dog was a hit with so many puppies giving joy to marketgoers and 7 pups finding new homes. Thanks again to Pedigree who sponsored a month’s worth of dog food to CLAW, a charity organization who gives shelter to homeless dogs, and is also involved with so many other good initiatives. We would also like to take the time to thank our TLM-goers who raised R4714 for this organisation.

We had a biiiig (or shall we rather say tall) surprise for the Linden market kids. Our stilt man was a hit as he entertained and gave out balloon animals to the amazed kids. He will definitely be back and bring some of his tall friends along next time.

We also had face painting, tie-dye and ceramic painting to keep the kids occupied, while the moms and dads could relax with a glass of delicious Simonsig Bubbly or a cold Beerbike draft.

With shopping bags in hand, tastebuds satisfied, feet tired from all the dancing, everyone was reluctant to leave when Georgetown played their final chords. Not to worry Jozi, if you have missed out on this one, our next one is around the corner.
