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.

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 Spring Edition – 29 September

THE LINDEN MARKET SPRING EDITION 

The Linden Market Spring edition took place on Saturday the 29th of September in the beautiful Botanical Gardens of Emmarentia. With rain forecasted for the day, we held our breaths and were very lucky to get best of both with rain on Friday night and a beautiful sunny day on market day! For those of you who missed it, here are some snapshots and a brief recap of the 2018 TLM Spring edition. A big shout out to Robyn Davie Photography for capturing our spring edition in such a beautiful way! Check out her website here Robyn Davie Photography.

As you entered the market, you were met with the most vibrant and colourful displays of flowers and plants. Walking along the entrance passage through the myriad of greenery, Simonsig Wines were waiting to serve visitors with a glass of delicious bubbly. This eased our shoppers into the rest of the market where they could indulge in the finest local shopping.

We were  joined by some of our reputable regulars, as well as a fine selection of newcomers in almost every vendor category The Linden Market has to offer. Ranging from food, beverages, décor & design, art, fashion, accessories and lifestyle products. New to the market, displayed under the old oak tree was Andre’s Vintage Bicycles & Finlays hand crafted shoes. Crowning Glory spoiled ladies with funky braids and a nail bar, whilst Kroon added a touch of spring with their beautiful flower crowns… This was a big hit!

We were so overwhelmed by the support we got from our visitors and local community at the CLAW (Community Led Animal Welfare) Adopt-A-Dog Initiative. Five out of the six doggies that were up for adoption at the market got forever homes. CLAW also received R5000 in cash donations and lots of sponsored collars for township dogs. We are beyond grateful and would like to thank each and everyone for the incredible support. A big thank you to CLAW for doing great work making such an impact in the community. We cannot wait to have you at the Christmas Edition market!

Say hello to the Linden Market’s Online Store

Say hello to the Linden Market’s Online Store

The Linden Market team worked for months to find new ways of collaborating with vendors to give them the opportunity to sustain a career in craft and showcase their incredible products on an online platform. This meant giving each vendor the opportunity to sell products more than four times a year, as well as to give market goers the opportunity to get their favourite products if they missed it by having too much fun with friend in Emmarentia Botanical Gardens.

 

 

 

 

 

The Linden Market, voted as one of South Africa’s best markets, took the initiative and created a local online platform to support what they believe in. The official launch of the TLM Online Store was held at Three on Third in Linden. The night kicked-off with a slight drizzle, but two of our regular vendors from the market Kitchen Kid and Yield coffee kept us warm and full during the evening. The rain was soon forgotten and guests could raise a glass of Simonsig MCC, wine, or Bullcook Craft Beer to the occasion.

The Linden Co-op, Cart and InJuly was the perfect location for the event as they too support local talent. Guests had the opportunity to stroll through all three shops during the evening to get a taste of what South Africa has to offer. After the speeches, Jacqueline Tolken and Peter Hoven, stepped in behind the mics and with their velvet voices they set the atmosphere of a perfect launch.
You can now find your favourite local product or perfect gift, online.

SPOIL YOUR MOM WITH A CREATIVE MORNING & BUBBLY BRUNCH

SPOIL YOUR MOM WITH A CREATIVE MORNING & BUBBLY BRUNCH

We might have outgrown their laps but we will never outgrow their hearts. Come and celebrate your mom with a creative day of bonding, silkscreen printing and a bubbly brunch.

The Linden Market is ecstatic to present you with our first ever workshop – a silkscreen printing day for you and your mom. The day is especially designed for the two of you to gain another skill while you enjoy brunch and sip on a glass of bubbly served by the famous Linden Market Bubbly Beetle. With our busy schedules nowadays, this is the perfect way to spend a little quality time together. In collaboration with Nostalgie Textiles, the workshop will give both you and your mom the opportunity to learn more about the techniques of silkscreen printing. Letitia du Tiot, the talented woman behind Nostalgie Textiles, will be your mentor for the day introducing you to the art and guiding you in your own creative process. Each group will have the chance to choose between 3 different screen designs that they will then use on the provided material. Each guest can choose from a wide variety of colours to personalise their design while the other guests get a crafty introduction to POP Paint to add a pop of brilliance to almost any surface or piece of furniture.

 

 

 

We have decided to host the workshop over two days, giving you a choice between gifting your mother on the Saturday or Sunday. There is only space for 40 guests per day, so if you want to join in on this creative experience, book your tickets now. 

Ps. No prior experience needed, you can just bring your mother.

When:  Saturday 12 May or Sunday 13 May

Where: Nostalgie Textiles Studio, 132 Golf Ave, Clubview, Centurion

How much: R500/pp

Included: All materials needed on the day, your personalised, handprinted tote bag, a jar of POP Paint to take home, brunch and a glass of Simonsig bubbly.
