New flea markets for Bloemfontein


A new Urban Flea Market in Bloemfontein’s Rose Garden that kicked off this past weekend, was a major success.
According to one of the organisers, Thabo Mokenela, the flea market will give all budding entrepreneurs an equal opportunity to showcase their goods and products.
The market will be run in conjunction with Nedbank, Standard Bank, the Free State Development Corporation, Mangaung Metro and Thepa Trading. Mokenela says a market of this magnitude is long overdue.
Mokenela says similar flea markets are planned for other regions in the province in the future and ultimately a huge quarterly flea market at a venue to be decided at a later stage.
The Urban Flea Market is taking place every Saturday. For more information call 072-482-3505 or 072-228-3140.
On 6 September 2014 a new platform for all the creative people and local attractions who master the art of food and design will be launched. It will be called the Westdene Park Market. It is a new initiative hoping to revitalise and restore all the talent in and around the 051. Visitors are encouraged to join and indulge in showcasing live local talent and savouring great food and friendships!
This market will take place from 9:00 – 15:00 on the 1st Saturday of every month at the Westdene Park in Brill Street, Bloemfontein. There will be no entrance fee for visitors. For more information please send an email to,
