find your secret place

A must to see and experience within the inner city Maboneng Precinct; part of the rejuvenation of Johannesburg!

Market on Main on every Sunday is Johannesburg's leading food and design market, made for the people of Jozi by the people of Jozi. The Night Markets are held on the first Thursday evening of the month (excluding January).

Set in the prestigious Arts on Main complex which houses some of Johannesburg's leading Galleries and Artist Studios, the goal is to encourage inner city lifestyle, to teach lots about sustainable living, and to provide a relaxed and creative space for friends to spend their leisure time. The design and vintage section upstairs includes locally designed furniture, clothing, accessories and crafts.

One can picnic under the olive trees while enjoying Chinese, Ethiopian, Indian, Italian and Moroccan Food. Alternately, the typically South African dishes of Boerie Rolls, Bunny Chows and Snoek on Roosterbrood, will make sure you leave with a real flavour of what South Africa is all about.
