Johannesburg, South Africa

Neighbourgoods Market

A growing popular hipster market with over 100 local specialties and live music.  

A buzz of food, talk and music fills a packed open-air rooftop market every Saturday in Johannesburg’s CBD. Founded by Justin Rhodes and Cameron Munro in partnership with Adam Levy in 2011, Neighbourgoods Market stands as a beacon of hope in the once dilapidated Braamfontein area.

The market has become one of the most popular markets drawing thousands of visitors to the ever-growing inner-city art scene in ‘Jozi’. The market features over 100 local speciality stalls including gourmet food and desserts, mason jar drinks, craft beers, vintage clothing stores, jewelry and live music.

The vibe of this urban-style, hipster-crawling, Instagram-worthy market sums up everything the new Joburg is about! 

Know Before You Go

On the first Thursday every month, there is a night market.
Move to Great Dane across the road for drinks after the market closes.
Public parking available at 86 Juta Street, Braamfontein for R10. Otherwise, park on the street - informal car guards line the streets to watch the area and will guide you where to park. Beware! Car guards do not have a set rate and may threaten you into paying as you park and before you leave (R10 before, R10 after) - R20 is generous!
