New Business Hub for Epping’s Informal Traders

 

 

During December 2021, Epping’s informal traders moved into their new state-of-the-art premises located inside the Epping Fresh Produce Market (Cape Town Market), this, after almost 30 years of trading on Gunners Circle.

The informal traders will be able to use this as a safe trading and storage facility as well as a place from which they can provide sufficient and nutritious range of fruit and vegetables at low prices in consumer-friendly packs to communities on a day-to-day basis.

The informal traders are mostly private individuals who buy in bulk from agents inside the market and break produce down into smaller-size packs for resale to housewives and township hawkers.

This is a venture between the City of Cape Town and the Epping Fresh Produce Market.

The City of Cape Town is currently clearing the area as can be seeing in the photos, the Epping Fresh Produce Market have employed a private security company to keep a watchful eye over the process of the clearing as well as to prevent new people from occupying the vacant land.
