The Market Reopens
The Bryanston Organic & Natural Market closed in mid-March in accordance with lockdown regulations. This not only impacted their loyal patrons, but the hard-working artisans and traders who rely on the market to make ends meet. Thankfully, the market has now been allowed to reopen to sell essential goods, takeaways and clothing under level 3 lockdown.
On Thursday, 02 July 2020, the market officially reopened for full trade, welcoming back as many traders as possible to bring quality organic food and household products to their customers. You can purchase food items (including takeaways and hot drinks), winter clothing and bedding, trinkets and medical items at the market.
The market’s restaurant traders are also back in full swing. Take a seat under the beautiful trees in the tea garden to enjoy a sit down meal. Take your pick from pizza prepared by La Cuisine du Jardin, Empanadas from Churrie Kings, banting options from The Keto Kitchen, vegan food from Leafy Greens, Indian street food from Meera’s or a delicious piece of cake or quiche from Bettina’s Cafe. It’s the perfect feast to welcome you back to your favourite organic market in the city!
You can now visit the Bryanston Organic & Natural Market on Thursdays between 09:30 – 13:00 or on Saturdays between 09:00 – 15:00 to get your hands on all your organic goodies.
In accordance with lockdown regulations, the Bryanston Organic & Natural Market reopened under special conditions. These have been put in place to not only protect their traders, but you as well. These are just some of the precautions now in place at the market:
- The market will only have one entry and exit point.
- As is now the norm in supermarkets, they may only admit 50 customers at a time. Entrance remains free.
- All customers, market staff and traders must wear masks or visors at all times. They may not admit anyone not wearing a mask.
- All customers, market staff and traders will have their temperature checked when entering the market.
- They kindly ask that you sanitise your hands on entry and throughout the day. Soap for hand-washing will be available in the restrooms for your convenience.
- The Bryanston Organic & Natural Market is well-known as a highly social space, but in these very trying times they request that you complete your shopping timeously in order to allow the next line of shoppers to enter the market. Please limit your shopping party to a maximum of two people. No pets will be allowed at this time.
- The market will enforce that you maintain a safe distance from your fellow shoppers while shopping and if queuing.
- Their preferred method of payment at this time is a credit or debit card or SnapScan. Their vendors will sanitise their card machines after each transaction.
