Working with the dynamic and creative team from Locrate Market has been such a joy. They really understand the consumer and know how to connect the consumer with local creatives in an innovative and authentic way. The Locrate Market must be on your Joburg and South Africa bucket list and if you can’t make it to the market, it is still worth connecting with the team to get their insider tips on what is hot and happening in and around Soweto and Joburg.

Collaborating with the LoCrate Team to bring Soweto’s up-and-coming fashion and art entrepreneurs into a Wine Space has been an inspiring journey into the heart beat of Soweto’s creative culture. The Locrate Market are an inspired collective of Creatives with a passion for creating a platform to showcase the best in Soweto’s creative hub. I would highly-recommend working with the team and visiting the market, or indeed any of the events they put together. You’ll leave invigorated – and inspired for the future of South Africa.
