We began the day on The Morning Cruise by talking with Mbalentle, Odwa, and Zano who are hosting an event called Market Day this Sunday 30 July, where locals can sell their wares. The aim of Market Day is to enable local vendors to network with each other in order to develop township brands. In addition to all the stalls where locals will be selling their wares, Market Day will have food for customers as well as screens where vendors and customers alike can watch the soccer match also happening on Sunday.
The first Market Day showcased 24 stalls and was quite a success. Mbalentle’s vision is that future Market Days will grow in size and that more and more local vendors will flock to the market in Philippi rather than travel further to the City Center to advertise and sell their goods. She encourages anyone who is young and creative to come to Market Day.
Listen to the whole interview below for a deeper look at Market Day and check out their flyer for the event details.
