Contributor Razina Patel took to the Jozi Markets on my behalf and had this to say.
There really is nothing better than real food, especially if you’re one of those people who loves time in the kitchen. Having fresh ingredients truly does make a dish even more delicious. I visited three local markets in Johannesburg and was amazed by the variety of goodies that they stock. Sure to put a smile on your face and leave your tummy more than satisfied. Here’s some info on each.
Joburg hasn’t really had many food markets in the past, but there does seem to be an increased demand of late. The Neighbourgood’s Market is a great option in Braamfontein, with a vibrant atmosphere in the heart of the inner city that takes place over two floors. You will find just about whatever you looking for. This market has created a weekly platform for local farmers, parmesan cheese, fine-food purveyors, organic merchants, bakers and distributors, grocers, mongers, butchers, artisan producers, celebrated local chefs, and micro enterprises.
Open every Saturday from 09H00 – 15H00.
Where: 73 Juta Street Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
Market on Main is ideal for people who have a thing for design or food or both! It’s a great place to spend time with friends and family. The venue includes a restaurant, event and exhibition centers, a wonderful courtyard and most importantly a roof top bar. Food is fresh, designs are inspiring and people are friendly.
This spot has got to be one of the best Sunday Spots in Jozi.
Open every Sunday from 10H00 – 15H00.
Where: Fox Street, Johannesburg.
At The Super you will find bakers, butchers, coffee shops and amazing cupcakes! Its best described as the place that has “happy food”. Don’t expect a huge market, as this one is slightly smaller but perhaps that’s the charm!
Start off with some crisp cooked veggies, and then move on to something meaty, Quench your thirst with some delicious freshly squeezed fruit juice and it all with a cup cake or two. Lastly don’t forget to try the coffee. Its beyond magnificent.
A local market happens every Saturday, they also have a monthly night market which looks like the place to be!
Day: Every Saturday from 09H00 – 15h00
Where: 4th Avenue Parkhurst Village
