Soweto Farmers Market announces new dates after last minute postponement

The event was originally scheduled for Sunday, 7 April.


The Soweto Farmers Market left many patrons disappointed last week after announcing the postponement of the highly anticipated event.

Originally scheduled for Sunday, 7 April, the market’s organisers issued a statement on Saturday, 6 April, announcing that the event was postponed due to “unforeseen weather conditions”.

They said the postponement would allow them to ensure that the event can proceed smoothly and safely.

“The safety and well-being of our attendees, vendors, and staff are our top priority, and we believe that postponing the event is the most responsible course of action given the current circumstances.

“We understand the inconvenience this may cause and sincerely apologise for any disruption to your plans,” added the statement.
