You must have a market account and a buyer's tag to make purchases at the Tshwane Fresh Produce Market. Two types of accounts are available:
1) Credit account
To use a credit account a bank guarantee must be provided as surety.
2) Cash account
This account is recommended for buyers who do not have a need for credit facilities.
To open an account an application form must be completed and accompanied by the following documents:
- South African identity document or
- South African driving licence or
- Asylum letter or
- Passport and
- Proof of residence
Once the buyer has chosen which type of account to use and acquired a tag, he/she can immediately procure fresh produce from any market agent.
Only cash and electronic payments are accepted when making a payment on an account. Buyers who use a cash account must deposit funds into this account before purchases can be made. Enquiries to pay using the electronic payment option can be made at the chief cashier in the buyer self-service centres in the market halls.
- A buyer's tag must be used for all purchases irrespective of which account is used.
- A buyer's tag is obtained from the market chief cashier for R20,00.
- If a buyer loses a tag, a tag is reissued for R60,00.
A client service centre is available in Halls A and B to assist buyers with further information, queries and any other problem that they may experience.
