At RED we are about all things things lifestyle & I recently had the opportunity to visit the Locrate Market in Soweto. The Market is situated a street away from the famous Vilakazi street in Orlando West Soweto. If you are a fan of the Neighbourgoods Market in Braamfontein, then you would love the Locrate Market. Think food, drinks, shopping and socialising, while chilling on actual beer crates!
The idea behind the market is to create an environment where young and aspiring entrepreneurs, creators and innovators could showcase and sell their products, meet other like-minded people, validate new ideas, get tips from established brands, create connections and get the necessary exposure to take their business further.
The Locrate Market is a platform for local entrepreneurs who want to showcase their products and ideas, and provides a stage for them to get their brand out and help them in growing it. The Market takes place on the 1st Sunday of every month.
