The Reizis Square Neighbourhood Nite Market which takes place on the third Friday of every month is extremely popular with Bloemfontein residents and visitors.

Reizis Square was the dream of local couple Salomé and Stylianos Reizis who took an abandoned building on the corner of Raymond Mhlaba and Waverly Roads and turned it into a Bloemfontein gem. The square is not only a thriving and alternative centre by day but a charming family friendly market by night.

Salomé’s dream was to create a space where people can gather to shop, be entertained and enjoy a good old fashioned chat over a delicious meal. That is exactly what she has achieved.

The monthly Reizis Square Nite Market is extremely popular with Bloemfontein residents and visitors. “I absolutely love to build, re-build and fix old spaces, and decorate them,” said Salomé. This is a place to enjoy live entertainment, craft beer and sweet treats with family and friends.

Salome turned a worn down building into a lifestyle centre with a mix of modern and old fashioned charm. The doors of the old garages are still used on the renovated premises to add a rustic touch.

The development of a Pick n Pay is taking place at Reizis Square and promises to be one of its kind in Bloemfontein.

Presently, the development of a Pick n Pay is taking place in the area but will not be any run-of-the-mill grocery shop. Pick n Pay at Reizis Square will be one of a kind so that it stays true to the mixed use of development that fuses downtown urbanism with a subtle sophistication of the centre.
