27 Boxes is undoubtedly one of Joburg’s most innovative retail and restaurant precincts. Fashioned from recycled shipping containers, this ultimate shopping destination houses fashion boutiques galore. Visitors can also enjoy the outdoor children’s park, an open air amphitheatre and the rooftop nursery. At just a short distance from the ever bustling 7th Street, 27 Boxes is usually a hive of activity over weekends.
Of course, over the past few months activity at the precinct has been halted due to COVID-19 restrictions. However since the implementation of level 4 lockdown, 27 Boxes has been up and running, welcoming in visitors with a number of health and safety regulations in place. Now the precinct will be hosting its first weekend market in months. The Green Market Melville will be held at the Boxes every Saturday for the month of July. Here’s what you can expect to find and how to prepare for your visit to 27 Boxes:

The Green Market
It’s been quite a while since we’ve been to a local market. If you’ve been sincerely missing the market vibe and are just itching to get out of the house, check out the Green Market Melville at 27 Boxes. This market is dedicated to a fervent love of all things ‘green’, including CBD oil, hemp products and much more. As Joburg’s first cannabis market, it sets the standard for responsible and quality trading of these types of products. The market will be hosted at 27 Boxes every Saturday in July. A limited number of traders will be set up around the precinct to allow for social distancing. So put on your face masks, pack up your hand sanitiser and let’s head out to the best ‘green’ market in the city.
