This expansive market on the roof of the Rosebank Mall specialises in colourful crafts and artworks by local artisans and is one of the best places in Johannesburg to buy gifts. You can choose from all kinds of beautiful items here, from intricately carved wooden figures to beaded murals and delicately printed rice paper. Many vendors will also happily demonstrate how they make their crafts and if you are able to return the following week, you can even request a custom-made item.
At the Rosebank Sunday Market there is a focus on self-help projects and on creating sustainability for these craft producers and every week the market gives a free stall to a local charity to sell wares in aid of their cause. The market is also a great place for lunch with stalls selling a wide range of delicious snacks including Greek wraps, Malaysian curries and Thai spring rolls, and for a sweet treat, luxury cupcakes and fresh smoothies and juices.
Other attractions include the rooftop bar where you can relax with a cold craft beer or a fresh coconut juice while listening to live music and on the last Sunday of every month the market hosts a special carboot sale.
Hours: open every Sunday from 9am to 4pm
