Awful. It was not what I expected. After everyone was ranting and raving about this place, I thought I should give it a visit. That visit lasted all of 12 minutes. OVER rated! Never going back!

Vibrant, interesting gathering of eclectic South African and other African cultures. Visit Artists' studios and galleries. Market with the usual stuff but also hidden gems of amazing crafting.Great food- my fave is the Ethiopian fare...yum!. Fab place to take overseas guests.

Right in the heart of Jozi city is this vibrant little space where art and food create the perfect vibe on a lazy Sunday. Music, arts, international foods and interesting people find their way here. Salsa dancing on the rooftop happens too. A must visit.

We went on the recommendation of our host. For me it was an ideal market - lots of artists displaying and selling, but not painfully crowded (perhaps because of the cold weather). There was also an amazing selection of foods, from all different countries and...More
