Empowering the Nation
The People’s Market (formerly Mandela Market) is a cash-market operated by more than 100 informal traders who sell both fruits and vegetables. They sell in smaller quantities, so you can buy loose fruit and vegetables. They close trading slightly later than the JM trading Halls so a customer can catch those purchases around mid-day towards lunch time (Monday – Saturday).
The JM is currently constructing bigger and better facilities which the People’s Market informal traders will move into in the coming months. They will also have cold-storage facilities, cooking and eatery facilities with modern seating structures. These improvements made by the Joburg Market will bring dignity to the informal trade.
Everybody is welcome to buy at the People’s Market. They sell in cash. You do not need a buying card to buy from them.
