About the HalaalGoodsMarket

HalaalGoodsMarket started in 2017 officially but the dream started way earlier than that.

In 2011, Fehmz lamented not having enough halaal options when visiting local markets or always having the usual “typically” halaal options of samoosas or looking out for the vegetarian offering. She knew she wanted to start something where halaal could be better showcased.

She once mentioned this to her friends a couple of years later and not a day later she read an article by Ishay Govender talking about the gap there was for a halaal market around and that catapulted her resolve to JUST DO IT. So she registered the website and told herself to do it. But the procrastination train got her and it was only until 2017 that she finally felt confident and ready to start something truly unique.

With many markets already around, what makes this one different? It’s a first of its kind artisanal food and design market that boasts halaal locally sourced items.

With a growing niche market, the halaal food industry is booming and local small businesses are entering the scene to offer their fare to a wider audience.

This market is different in that it is entirely curated, it’s not possible to just BOOK a stall at the market, a committee oversees the participation of each vendor through an application process to curate the best connoisseurs of Halaal goods.


This is not a normal run of the mill event. Our vendors have taken the flavours of the world and added the halaal touch. From Korean to Japanese and a twist on traditional favourites, there’s something for every palate.
The event is open to all to experience a food fusion like no other.

The HalaalGoodsMarket aims to promote sustainable development and growth of small businesses and favours locally made over imported where at least 70% of market participants sell locally sourced food, fashion and design goods.

Halaal is an Arabic word meaning permissible according to Islamic law. It refers to both goods and services acceptable to Muslims.
The halaal industry is growing and is estimated to be worth over a trillion dollars globally. With almost a million Muslims in South Africa, there’s an untapped market for items and events tailored for the needs of this denomination and this event is one such avenue.

The HalaalGoodsMarket is the first artisan Halaal Food and Design Market in South Africa.

  • Throwing it back to the last #HalaalGoodsMarket and thinking of all our servicemen, medical personnel and first responders. 
Our country is in a tough predicament and we thank our civil servants for their service in this trying time. 
You guys rock!! #firstresponders #salute
  • Honoured to be featured in the local RoseBank and Killarney gazette as well as Sandton Chronicle this week. Look out for your local paper if you live in the northern suburbs of Jhb. #halaalgoodsmarket
  • In light of the developments over the weekend and the President’s directive on the limitation of public gatherings, it would be irresponsible for us to host an event of this size and nature at this time. Our concern first and foremost are for our patrons, vendors and support staff who make our event what it is.

We pray that everyone keeps well in these times and be responsible in their interactions with others.

We shall communicate a new date for the Moonlight edition in due time. All applications will be carried over to be considered for the new date.

Our next 2-day event will occur at the end of August 2020, the application period for that event will open in May/June 2020.

Keep safe, stay informed through the news and trusted sources on matters surrounding  Coronavirus. 
We shall see you again soon 🖤 #halaalgoodsmarket

Important points to remember:

2. The market is a curated market, therefore vendors are limited and all applications go through a selection process. The curation is done via an ANONYMOUS selection committee and not by Fehmz alone. 
3. Successful submission of an application does not guarantee successful participation in the next HGM.
4. The #HGMfamily of vendors are there to help each other, uplift each other, support each other and those are the kind of vendors that make HGM successful.
5. All consumable products have to be halaal, if the business is not muslim owned, a certificate for halaal will be required.
6. If you’ve got that passion and drive, this is the market for you!
7. If you need an idea of the size of a stall please see images of the previous markets, a single stall is one table length only.
