A Much Belated Post on the Neighbourhoodgoods Market, Braamfontein

Neighbourhoodgoods Market

Yes I know, I am behind the times but I have been meaning to write a post on the market for months, so here it is!

The Inner City has been lucky enough in the last few months to have a couple of weekend markets open up. Although I think they are great, my favourite is definitely the Neighbourhoodgoods Market situated in Braamfontein.

The best cupcakes in town!

It is open every Saturday from 09h00 to 15h00 and it is the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning. It is also playing a huge part in the rejuvination of the Jozi Inner City as loads of people who would normally never come into the city are venturing in to experience the Market.

Braamfontein is fab on a Saturday and what is great is that the whole area is pumping, not just the market. From the Southpoint District and their coffee shops and restuarants to the 70 Juta precint and Kitcheners. I like how it is not surrounded by a wall but rather you really experience the city.

The Market itself is great and the food on offer is sooooo yummy! My advice when you arrive treat yourself to a Bloody Mary (the best one in Joburg) and then walk around all the stalls sampling all the delights on offer. Fabulous olives, cheese, lemonade, Ethiopian food and dont even get me started on the cupcakes!

Why not enjoy a long lazy breakfast and a few drinks at the Market and then head over to Kitcheners (Joburg's second oldest pub) for a beer.

And of course I cant not mention, that my company Past Experiences does a fantastic 2 hour Braamfontein walk on a Saturday before the market opens, ending at the Market. Its an awesome way to start the day!
