How time flies… the blossoms have made space for bright green leaves and The Linden Market Spring edition has come and gone. But what a way to celebrate spring and welcome in the summer.
The Linden Market Spring edition on 2 September at the Botanical gardens was our best market yet. With over 5000 visitors throughout the day and 130 vendors, it truly was a carnival of taste, colour, talent and fun. The selection of vendors were out of this world and we are sure that anyone who was there will testify to the remarkable creativity and products that were on display.
The awesome line up of musicians added to the celebratory atmosphere and with performances by Nick May, Suzzi Swanepoel, Jacqueline Tolken & Peter Hoven market goers were truly entertained, as Georgetown band ended off the beautiful day on a high. The Linden Market is not only a fun day out for family and friends, but we also support and give a platform to local charities. The local initiative 67 Blankets for Mandela, once again sold their wonderful blankets at #Marketinthepark, empowering and giving back to those in need. The best news of the day is that love was definitely in the air as 7 of the rescue dogs from Date-a-Dog with CLAW found new homes.
If The Linden Market Spring Edition is anything to go by, you will surely not want to miss the X-mas edition on 2 December.
In 2015 the first Linden Market took place as a small Christmas market in the Linden-garden of Gerbri Swartz or Bibi, as most of you know her. The market quickly grew and moved to Linden Highschool and has most recently moved to it’s new home, The Emmarentia Botanical gardens.
It is with well wishes that we say goodbye to the original organizer of the Linden market, Bibi and with excitement that we announce Nieuwnation Brand Consultancy has taken over the reins. Even though the market has changed ownership, moved venues and grown exponentially, we are still all about bringing a unique offering to the local community and aimed at creating a platform for local makers, designers, shop owners and food vendors.
Thank you for your ongoing support. The Linden Market wouldn’t be the same without you.
