The Regional Council of The Christian Community met in Windhoek from 14 to 16 July 2023 for their annual meeting. The visit to the Community in Windhoek provided an opportunity to experience the Green Market.
The Green Market is a market that operates independently of the The Christian Community and is operated by The Green Market Trust with its own General Manager.
The Green Market has been operating for 19 years. In the period it has seen several markets start up in Windhoek and close down again.
The Green Market uses the paved space around the church of The Christian Community in Windhoek. As a result it is limited in its size and cannot grow much larger than it currently is. This means that the stall holder are committed to retaining their place.
The church in Windhoek is build against the side of a hill. The sloping ground means that the parking nearer the entrance to the church is much higher than the street level behind the church. The church building thus has two levels. The upper level is the church with its sacristy and rooms that serve the sacraments. Beneath the church is the Community Room and other spaces.
The coffee shop of the Green Market, operated by The Christian Community, is at the street level of the Community Room. It has a area of seating conveniently close to street level and the on-street parking.
The photos below, taken on 15 July 2023, take you on a spiral journey from the coffee shop, spiraling anticlockwise around the church building, up a flight of stairs and around to the front of the church. The wide paved area in front of the church has stall on either side.
Looking from this vantage point, at the entrance to the church, the Green Market occupies both sides of the paves area and then spiral to the left, clockwise, around the church to the coffee shop which is at the bottom of the steps straight ahead, to right of center of this photo.
