When visiting Johannesburg do visit Maboneng Precinct to see beautiful art, enjoy the food at Market on Main and feel the vibe of the inner city! Do try the cocktails on offer and the delicious food from the market. Beautiful people all around

Great vibe, interesting arts and craft studios, retailers and market stalls. Absolutely wonderful selection of foods from around Africa. Great way to spend 2 or 3 hours in safety in downtown Joburg.

I absolutely loved the variety and quality of food, drinks and goods for sale. This place is a lovely example of the diversity and skill we have in South Africa. It's a bit pricey but worth the visit.

The Market on Main is the place to go on Sunday! If you like Neighborgoods Market, then the same vendors and more are here. Good food and worth exploring. Make this a part of you Joburg tour.
