In a different world, for an hour or two

On Saturday we visited Market @ the Sheds in midtown Pretoria. What a lovely experience! It is so cosmopolitan - not like you imagine Pretoria to be. I have shared many markets in and around Pretoria and even Cape Town before but this one has to be the new "must visit " one around.

Entrance to the Market from Helen Joseph street
As always with markets - pictures speak louder than words - take a look and visit - the next market is on 24 September. There is always live music, and array of wonderful food to choose from, great places to sit and have a craft beer/ smoothie/ cocktail and something to eat. And it has to be the cleanest and neatest market I have ever seen.
Wonderful space of the main shed with the market.
Tables and seats facing the band inside the shed

Yummy mommy has fantastic cakes on offer as well as sweets for the kiddos.
These are so beautiful

Tasty deconstructed cakes
Thise Brownies at the back - best ever!

I would love one of these stunning well made leather bags

You have to go and see this! Absolute brilliance.

L had to buy some biltong - tasters provided

Huge range of risoles

Venison "burgers" and chips

This looked interesting - may try it next time
Feeling Mexican?

A wide variety of cocktails - and there is wine by the glass including good Cape Classique bubbles and my favorite Graham Beck Gorgeous wine

Great coddee at the Urban Barrista

Neat as a pin ablutions
There is a small kiddies area with child minders close to some seating for parents of the tiny ones
This was our favorite space- a stunning courtyard with seating close to the main shed - you can hear the music but have a conversation - just perfect, while you are enjoying the eats and drinks

I was contemplating buying the red one for the next Capital singers ...

A bought a set of earrings for R30 here!
These are stunning and unique
 There is also a big craft beer hall at the top area which early in the morning was still quiet but I am sure fills up later in the day. So if you are in Pretoria or visiting in September do join us! Unique in Pretoria without a doubt.


  1. Ooh looks like it's worth a drive to Pretoria

    1. Combine it with another inner city attraction like the Ditsong Natural science museum and you have a grea day

  2. It looks lovely, at one stage we regularly visited markets but haven't for a while. Now I need a piece of cake!

  3. Oh goodness, it looks fab. We have something similar here in PE, the Valley Market, which started up recently, although on a much smaller day.
    Did you hear that apparently today is "International Eat-A-Cup-Cake For Breakfast day"? I could do with one of those pictured

  4. Thanks for sharing this, would definitely be making a trip here soon

  5. Looks like a place not to miss!!
    Thanks for the share!


So what's on your mind?
