By way of comparison, the Joburg Market is twice the size of the second-ranked market in the country and bigger than 17 other local markets.

The Market serves about 5 000 farmers from across South Africa who send their fresh produce to be traded to a large buyer base, averaging about 10 000 daily.

Trade takes place via a commission system with the Market charging the producer a mere 5% commission on all sales made on the commission floor. A further negotiable levy of 7,5% is paid to Market Agents for selling produce on behalf of the farmer.

Trade takes place in three (3) Food hubs, namely: Fruit Hub, Potato & Onion Hub and Vegetable Hub measuring a total of 65 000m2.

This remarkable market is easily accessible from the main freeways and is located just 5km south of Johannesburg´s central business district.

As value-adding services, the Market has 55 cold rooms which can accommodate 4 561 pallets of fresh produce and 50 banana ripening rooms which can handle 1 590 pallets of bananas at any one time.
