Landscape Architect and Horticulturist, Greg Straw developed the Fourways Farmers Market in 2013. His vision was to create a space where artisans and crafters could sell to the public. Set within a beautiful outdoor garden, this was to be an intimate market experience. However, as the market made its debut at the Fourways Farmstead, it became increasingly popular. Drawing in hundreds of visitors to their weekly Sunday market, the Fourways Farmers Market is undoubtedly one of the most popular weekend craft and food events in the city.
With over 107 vendor stalls, selling an array of cheese, sweets, gourmet meals and drinks, the market is a hive of activity. Patrons are welcome to take a seat under the Jacarandas, or on the famous hay bales. Surrounded by plant life, under the glorious Joburg sun, the market is an idyllic retreat from busy city life. However, space has become limited, often causing frustration among visitors. With limited parking available onsite and a cramped market space, the Fourways Farmers Market was in need of a new home.

On Friday, 22 November 2019, the Fourways Farmers Market announced the location of their new home!

Businesswoman befits her well, as she sits at the helm of Era by DJ Zinhle - a jewellery and watch brand taking the country by storm. The online store features a range of must-have watches, bracelets and African-inspired accessories. Offering shoppers the latest fashion trends, Era by DJ Zinhle is a local gem.
Fans of the brand have long been calling for a new pop-up store in Joburg. With one store already situated at The Workshop in Newtown, Era by DJ Zinhle was in need of a new temporary home. Located between Joburg and Pretoria, The Mall of Africa makes the perfect spot for a pop-up store. Africa's largest mall sees thousands of visitors each month, many of whom are sure to stop by the Era by DJ Zinhle pop-up shop. Launched on Friday, 27 September 2019, the store will be opened for exactly one month. So, hurry on over before your dream watch sells out!
The pop-up store has already seen a number of visitors. Their best seller so far is the ladies Rose Glam-Up Watch. Part of the Glam-Up edition, this wrist watch features gorgeous rose gold details and an intricate rose design at the centre of the piece. Celebrating the strength of African women, this watch is a classic timepiece. Visit the store to get your hands on one.
According to the fashion gurus, jewellery stacking is bang on trend right now. To help you keep up with the times, the pop-up store allows you to create your own custom layered combinations. Design your very own stacked watch and bracelet set which reflects your personality. Whether you pick a classic watch or an African-inspired design, there are beautiful bracelet accompaniments to all watch pieces. Both men and ladies can create their own custom designs.
If you need a little help choosing your combo pieces, check out the Era by DJ Zinhle online store. DJ Zinhle's team have selected a few custom combo pieces of their own which are available to order. Our top pick for the ladies is the Pink Afro Edition Combo. The Pink Afro Edition watch with unique face front design is perfect paired with the Silver Beat music note bracelet and Silver Precious bracelet. At only *R 1,478.00 for the whole set, this is an investment well worth making.
For the guys, we like the Boss Black Watch Combo. The seriousness of the Black Eraholic Bracelet and Black Buckle Bracelet are offset by the playfulness of the centre watch design. Fun but professional, this watch should definitely be on your Christmas wish list!
Visit the Era by DJ Zinhle pop-up store at the Mall of Africa, Life Court, Entrance 23. The store will be open until Sunday, 27 October 2019.

The ever-popular kitchen and homeware retailer, Yuppiechef, will be opening two new stores in Johannesburg later this month - on the same day! You can expect them to open their doors to both stores in Sandton City and Mall of Africa on Friday, 28 June 2019.
The two brand-new Yuppiechef stores will offer shoppers a selection of the products available on yuppiechef.com. But if an item is not available in the store, customers can order it while visiting and have it delivered to their preferred address.
The Johannesburg stores' interior will follow the design principles of the other four Yuppiechef stores - an industrial feel along with premium features including their iconic wooden paneling and engineered quartz counter-tops. Another highlight Joburg shoppers can enjoy is the stores' “no queue” point-of-sale system, which allows customers to pay for their basket of items anywhere in the store, aided by a store assistant.
In case you missed it, the two Yuppichef Joburg stores will be opening their doors on the following date:

The Waterfall Market will be set up at Waterfall Park on Sunday, 17 February 2019. The park is just opposite the Mall of Africa in Midrand. This expansive picnic ground plays host to many outdoor family-friendly events, including holiday-themed night markets. In November 2018, the organisers of the Fourways Farmers Market hosted a summer night market at the venue. Now, the park will be transformed into an artisans wonderland. Featuring the best crafters, artists, bakers and musicians the city has to offer. The venue is child-friendly and is the perfect spot to go for a Sunday afternoon picnic.
There will be a plethora of exciting food stalls on show at the Waterfall Market. From gourmet street food trucks to home-baked breads and cakes. Organic food fundies should also have their spoils, as Joburg's finest fresh produce stalls will line the Waterfall Plaza.
Drink enthusiasts, your needs have not been forgotten. The usual gin, craft beer and cider stalls should be expected at the event, as well as wine and champagne tasting expositions. Visitors can enjoy their food goodies and ice cold drinks at communal tables set up around the park. Alternatively, bring along a picnic blanket and make up your own little feast spot in the park.
Pretoria-based singer-songwriter duo, Bad Peter, will be headlining the Waterfall Market stage. PG Badenhorst and Alwyn Bekker (a.k.a Bad Peter) have released two EP's since their inception in 2014. They released their last musical output, titled 'Need to Hear', independently in 2017. Their music is distinctly South African, as it blends various styles and genres into one smooth sound. 'We don’t like to limit ourselves to a specific genre. Being singer-songwriters gives us that freedom. You’ll hear folk, blues, african, pop and latin influences in our songs', Bad Peter says of their style.
Listen to a sample of Bad Peter's music here.

For the first time in Africa, Nestlé KitKat will be launching their deliciously divine KitKat Chocolatory, a unique pop-up store that gives chocoholics the opportunity to create personalised, handcrafted KitKats. From 24 November 2018 for four weeks, Nestlé KitKat will be setting up shop at the Mall of Africa. Who's excited? Because we are!
The KitKat Chocolatory allows you to explore your creative side by conceptualising your own unique KitKat using the interesting and exclusive flavour combinations available. This exciting concept has been successful for Nestlé KitKat around the globe, including in Japan, Australia, Canada, Malaysia and many others.
To create your own KitKat 'break' at the pop-up store, follow these four easy steps:
1. Which type of chocolate?
First, select your favourite Nestlé KitKat — white or dark?
2. Choose your toppings
Then add up to THREE delicious toppings to your bar from their selection of 14 toppings. Included are zesty lemon pieces, caramelised hazelnut crocant, mint chips, strawberry pearls, caramel fudge, coconut, mixed berry fruit pieces, honeycomb, shortbread, tutti frutti, and more. There's something for everyone!
3. Personalise it!
Now you need to select a personalised pack and message. You even get to include a name. The pack selection offers five different designs with stunning photography of iconic South African landmarks and African animals. Take your pick from the Johannesburg skyline, the Orlando Towers, Table Mountain, our Big Five or a gifting option. Also, there are 16 different messages to choose from.
4. Take it home
The final step is to pay. Since your own personalised bar is handcrafted, there's about a 20-minute wait for it to be made. An SMS notification will tell you when it's ready for collection. Your creation will be handed to you in a gift bag with a gift card.
As if all of this wasn't awesome enough, Nestlé KitKat has three Special Edition chocolates that have been inspired by desserts, available at the pop-up store only. There's Milk Tart, Trifle and Black Forest. A limited number will be available each day.
The KitKat Chocolatory pop-up store will be open for business from Saturday, 24 November 2018 to Saturday, 22 December 2018.
You can find this pop-up chocolatory store at the Food Court in the Mall of Africa. Address is as follows:
