Marketplace At The Square Umhlanga, KZN


On 27 September 2013, The Market place 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 place, I acquired to expertise initial hand the wonderful vibe and the potential this market place has to be successful.



The Market Co was began earlier in 2013 by Kim Walsh, graphic designer and fellow blogger of Ruby+Swallow. The idea of a night marketplace showcasing some of KZN’s greatest home-grown talents blossomed into the higher Durban area’s trendiest new gathering just 9 months later on.



If you can picture an open-air setting festively illuminated by a canopy of fairy lights and the buzz of happy people and chilled out dwell music setting the mood, you can nearly picture you are there. Nevertheless best check out the night market on the last Friday of each and every month to knowledge it for oneself and make sure you do not miss out on some specialized retail purchasing.


The Marketplace Co. crew wished to create an “arty Durban layout atmosphere”. Buyers are encouraged to amble through the stalls that offer vintage clothes, handmade jewelry and gorgeous hand-crafted home décor. If it’s not the artisan wares that you’re right after but rather an possibility to unwind right after a prolonged week, the shared seating location and a drink from the Craft Beer bar, need to assist the result in. Dinner from one particular of the delicious specialty foods stalls should set the tone for an wonderful night out.



The subsequent industry is scheduled for the 29th of November (6-10pm). They promise it’s going to be, “bigger (and better!)”
