What Is It?
The first collaboration was in September 2018. Market on Main was invited to bring a piece of their downtown home to the prestigious Design Quarter in Fourways. A selection of their favourite stallholders were scattered throughout the centre, activating the space with heart.
This time, they will be temporarily occupying a dedicated retail space at Design Quarter, giving them the opportunity to provide their vendors with an immense space to trade during retail’s busiest three weekends of the year. Each weekend will start with a night market on Friday night, and continue on Saturday and Sunday from noon until 17:00.
Wondering what to expect at these markets? Well, a few highlights will include a Kids Jolly Xmas Workshop, showing children how to make paper art for tree décor and cookie decorating, and a Traditional Wreathe Workshop with celebrated florist, Franz Grabe. Get all the details below:

An important focus will be a push to support small businesses and local makers when shopping during the gifting season this year. Many of their vendors used the lockdown to rethink and rebrand their products, so the offering will be new, fresh, innovative, and most importantly, local.
