Joburg Food Markets Through the Eyes of the Locals

Last updated: Feb 04, 2016

Johannesburg's food market scene is a thriving one. With different markets scattered all over the city, there's sure to be a one close enough for you to spend your Saturday morning sampling some tasty treats, sip on crafty cocktails with your friends and even catch some local, live music.

Have a look below at some of our favourite Joburg markets and experience them through the eyes of the locals...

1. The Fourways Farmers Market in Sandton

Have you ever seen a prettier looking Jam Jar? We didn't think so...

2. The Bryanston Organic Market

There are a wide range of organic goods vendors with many healthy options, even if the little ones still just want their chocolate.

I don't like chocolate. But this kid. #bryanstonorganicmarket

4. The Neigbourgoods Market in Braamfontein

This is one of the top markets in the country. Good food and drink is always better shared with good company.

6. The Hazelfood Market

Although it isn't technically in Johannesburg we still wanted to add this great local market situated close by in Pretoria. Here you can find anything from a variety of Indian spices to fresh Sushi.

Chinese dumplings, roosterkoek, flatbread and bobotie pie... #hazelfoodmarket
