Firewood in Johannesburg

For the best quality firewood in Johannesburg at great prices, has amazing service and will impress! For cooking meat on a braai choose sekelbos as it gives the meat a smokey aroma. For fireplace wood choose the hardwood or bluegum, which burns the longest.

Crazy SPECIALS to Celebrate Bryanston Organic Market's Birthday Month

30 years ago a forward thinking couple decided to start selling fresh produce at Mount Michael Waldorf School. Today this Market has become the go-to place for everyone searching out certified organic produce sold in the beautiful park like setting of the school at 20 Culross Road, Bryanston.

As Braeside Meat Market we are so honoured to have shared the last few years journey with this Market. To celebrate their birthday we have some amazing specials available only at our Bryanston Market stand.

Here are a few other wonderful items you can purchase Thursdays and Saturdays between 09h00 and 15h00 at the Market:

The Loaf - Owned by Alain Algrain and run as a family business, these talented pastry makers have a wide range of baked goods available - all made using stoneground flour, free range eggs and plenty of love. Yannick, Alain's daughter, will point out their famous breads and tempt you with a little sweet tart.

Green Bean African Coffee - Lee Anderson will gladly share her extensive knowledge of sourcing beans from around the world, debunking many myths about coffee supply. No shop is complete unless you have purchased some yirgacheffe coffee

Please visit the online shop page to get to the Braeside Butchery Online Shop.


We welcome a few new ranges to our Greenside store this week.

Antonia's - Vegan friendly, gluten free and sugar free range of delicious goodies
