Have the sounds of Michael Bublé blaring over the supermarket speakers snapped you out of your 2018 stupor yet? The festive season is nigh! Soon it’ll be time to relax, bask in the company of loved ones and show appreciation for one another with some good ol’ gift giving. If you’re looking for extra special gifts that’ll wow your friends and family, it’s almost time for the November I heart Market. It’s a great opportunity to get a head start on your festive season shopping and even better, you’ll be supporting local makers. These makers do wonders for the local economy by creating jobs, supporting local suppliers and spending their profits in the community. When you buy from them, you’ll make a maker happy, make a giftee happy and boost the local economy. That’s a win-win-win right there! This market also marks the one-month countdown to the I heart Market’s 10th birthday celebrations in December, so excitement is mounting. Trader applications for the December markets close on the 9th of November so if you want to be a part of the local maker movement, go to iheartmarket.co.za to apply. The November market takes place on the 3rd of November from 9 AM to 2 PM at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
