The Neighbourgoods Market is an independent initiative founded in 2006 by entrepreneurs Justin Rhodes and Cameron Munro, whose aim is to revive and reinvent the Public Market as a civic institution. Specialty traders showcase their wares every Saturday,thus creating a weekly platform for local farmers, fine-food purveyors, organic merchants, bakers and distributors, grocers, mongers, butchers, artisan producers, celebrated local chefs, and micro enterprises.
Following the success of the Cape Town market located in the Old Biscuit Mill in the industrial neighbourhood of Woodstock Cape Town, the Johannesburg edition was launched in 2011 in the vibrant neighbourhood of Braamfontein, Johannesburg. In keeping with their commitment to urban regeneration, Justin and Cameron chose a venue in the heart of the inner city. The market takes place over two floors of 73 Juta Street, a Johannesburg landmark building.
Any "food loving" visitors to either Cape Town or Johannesburg must pass a couple of hours on a Saturday morning between 9 am-3 pm at either of these vibey markets.I have now visited both and can highly recommend.If you are not a "foodie" or on a serious diet, then don't bother going, as its all about tasting, buying and enjoying good food and drink and soaking up the Neigbourgoods Market "vibe".
Here are just a few of the foods available
Their is parking
on the streets around the market and plenty
