Nestled in the bustle of Gauteng, is a little piece of tranquility in the heart of Linden. With delightful coffee shops, an art gallery, quaint stores and various restaurants catering to the needs of all foodies, Garden on 4th is a hidden gem that provides the community with a place to escape to.

With a need to share this piece of heaven with the rest of Johannesburg, Daz Jalaser, the owner of Gotcha Pizza approached Franco Ferrarese, the owner of various niche companies like Ke Ai and YES SIR! Events, to create a fun gathering for like-minded people.

For all those interested in the obscure, the niche, the unusual… For the geek, the obsessed, the comic fan, science fanatic… For those who are off the beaten track, the devoted super heroes and villains, the fringe, members of the alternative nation…. THIS IF FOR YOU!

Gotcha Pizzeria, Yes Sir! Events and Ke Ai, bring you the first of Linden’s monthly market aimed at the Geek and Alternative culture (and everyone in between).
Like minded people selling alternative merchandise, entertainment and more. Come drink, eat, shop and chill at the first monthly Gotcha Garden on 4th Geek Gathering.

 “Daz and I wanted to offer something different from the many other ongoing markets in Joburg. We also do not understand why the geek and alternative communities have to wait for larger scale events once or twice a year to actually have a place to gather or shop. We feel that there is a gap in the market for a monthly ongoing Geek and Alternative space and want to bring the community together on a regular basis.”
adds Franco Ferrarese “When Daz spoke to me about using Garden on 4th, which is the home of Gotcha Pizzeria, I knew that this would be the perfect venue to bring people together”.

The first market will take place on the 30th September 2023, and thereafter the last Saturday of every month at Garden on 4th in Linden.

All the resident businesses in Garden of 4th will be trading on the day, and there will be various stalls selling all sorts of goodies, with live music and fun activities to add to a delightful, fun day.
