It feels if the Uitenhage Market finally has found its home after being relocated to Willow Dam.

“There was a lovely festive atmosphere in a tranquil setting with people sitting in the shade of the trees whilst listening to singer Dillon Lerm,” said Lilly de Jong from Women in Business, the organisers of the monthly market.

Dillon commented afterwards that his outdoor performance at the market definitely was one of his highlights of the year.

According to De Jong, lots of stalls reported that they had sold out their items. The presence of the Uitenhage Community Policing Forum enhanced the feeling of security and no major incidents were reported.

“We would really like to thank everybody as well as the stallholders who assisted us to make this move the success it was. Thank you for believing in us moving from venue once again and now we have finally found our home where we will grow from strength to strength,” said De Jong.

For more information on becoming a stallholder or to perform at the next Uitenhage Market contact Lilly on 076 – 345 9935 or wibsouthafrica@gmail.com

)Next market will be on June, 7th
