On 27 September 2013, The Industry Co. hosted the initial Marketplace at the Square in the urban landscape of Umlanga’s Grenada Square. As a stall-holder at this hip new night market, I got to encounter very first hand the wonderful vibe and the prospective this market place has to succeed.
The Market place Co was began earlier in 2013 by Kim Walsh, graphic designer and fellow blogger of Ruby+Swallow. The concept of a night market showcasing some of KZN’s very best house-grown talents blossomed into the greater Durban area’s trendiest new gathering just 9 months later.
If you can picture an open-air setting festively illuminated by a canopy of fairy lights and the buzz of satisfied individuals and chilled out live music setting the mood, you can virtually envision you are there. Nonetheless greatest visit the night marketplace on the final Friday of every single month to encounter it for oneself and make certain you do not miss out on some specialized retail shopping.
The Marketplace Co. team wished to generate an “arty Durban style atmosphere”. Shoppers are encouraged to amble through the stalls that provide vintage clothing, handmade jewelry and stunning hand-crafted home décor. If it’s not the artisan wares that you’re right after but rather an chance to unwind following a lengthy week, the shared seating region and a drink from the Craft Beer bar, must aid the lead to. Dinner from a single of the delicious specialty food stalls need to set the tone for an great evening out.
The next industry is scheduled for the 29th of November (6-10pm). They promise it’s going to be, “bigger (and far better!)”
Where:Grenada Square Courtyard, 16 Chartwell Drive, Umhlanga
