Neighbourgoods Market - Braamfontein
Housed in a modernist building that has a spectacular 15-story wall mural by the famed artist Eduardo Villa, the Neighbourgoods Market in Braamfontein is as much a source for farm fresh foods and specialty goods as it is a meeting point to enjoy community, swop ideas and stories, and be inspired by the energy that makes Joburg.
Founded by a collective of creatives with a mutual passion for inner-city revival, this cultural hub is a must-do in Jozi.
Neighbourgoods Market Johannesburg is open every Saturday rain or shine from 9 am to 3 pm.
