The Linden Market of 2019 is set to kick off. The Autumn Edition market will take place at The Botanical Gardens in Emmarentia.

For the first time ever TLM will be a salsa-ish affair - the day will kick off with Yoga in the park at 9:00am. Bring the family and for some Salsa under the Autumn Sun with Estilo Cubano. Not only will the adults be entertained, but the little ones can join and get their happy feet moving to the Cuban rhythms of Afro-Cuban Salsa. 

The market will only be taking place on these dates: Saturday, 18 May, 13 July, 28 September. There will also be a Christmas Market on 30 November and 1 December.   

Expect 150 of the most creative, talented local vendors. There is something for everyone from handmade kids toys and jewellery to plants and proudly South African decor. The incredible products from the market are now also available online - click here.

Back by popular demand, Georgetown Band will be playing their folky tunes, as you enjoy delicious food and drinks under a comfortable shaded area. Earlier in the day you will be entertained by the music of Nariska and Steve Umcolo. 

With plenty to do for the kids, you can enjoy the shopping and music while they play their hearts out on the jumping castle or get their faces painted. The older kids can bring the 60's back and get creative with Tie Dye, or design and paint their own ceramics with Pick and Paint Ceramics. 

The Linden Market is proud to support local charities. This year is no different. Old-favourite Date-a-Dog will be there with their furry bundles of love, which you can take for a walk around the park and perhaps adopt, should it be love at first sight. Remember that you can also bring your own puppy to spend the day as TLM is the dog-friendliest market around.

  • Dates: Saturday, 18 May, 3 July, 28 September and our Christmas Market on 30 November and 1 December
  • Tickets are available at the gate - R30 or online. Pensioners - R15
