About Us

Slow Food Johannesburg
As the Johannesburg convivium (chapter) of the international Slow Food movement, we’ve been around since 2001.

Living in the city means that direct contact with farmers and food producers is not always possible, but we as Slow Food Johannesburg are committed to eating seasonally, locally and sustainably, by supporting small producers and responsible retailers.

Guided by the principles of seasonal and local, we actively practice the Slow Food philosophies by hosting monthly events varying from taste workshops and visits to nearby farms and small producers, to hands-on workshops and cultural dinners, where we aim to learn about different cuisines and the communities that cook them.

From farmer’s markets to feasting at seasonal harvest tables, we invite you to join us as we explore food that’s good, clean and fair in and around Joburg.
