city of Johannesburg Joburg Market is affiliated to the following organisations below: The Produce Marketing Association The south african union of food markets The Perishable Products Export Control Board The South African National Accreditation System


The market provides 24-hour security control. The market agents are responsible for receiving and dispatching fresh produce on their allocated floor space in the sales halls, and also control their own sales. 

Consignment control begins at the main gate where all delivery vehicles have to produce a delivery note. The receipt of the delivery note is validated with a stamp indicating the date and is allocated a tracking number. This stamp neither indicates nor serves as proof that the consignment was checked or received. Receipt of the consignment, therefore, remains the responsibility of the market agent. 

Joburg Market is a member of World Union of Wholesale Markets (WUWM)
