This is just okay. It is a decent market but there are better markets in other areas, like the Rosebank Roof Top market on Sundays.

Worth the visit to experience the flavours and authenticity of what Johannesburg is all about. We had a great day out. Thanks to a local family member willing to take us there. Thank you Jason.

Definitely not worth a visit. Seedy and run down, car park area overgrown with weeds, cheap Chinese junk everywhere for sale. Multiple stalls and shops selling the same stuff at the same price. A run-down, down-town place. Give it a skip. If you want to...More
