Market on Main

Market On Main is "made for the people of Joburg by the people of Joburg". Stallholders are Gauteng based food producers and designers. Located at Arts On Main.

Johannesburg, Gauteng


Started by designer for Black Coffee, Jacques van der Watt, Market On Main is a funky inner city Joburg food and design market.

When we visited this market while in Joburg last year, we were pleased to see a fine collection of authentic Gauteng artisanal food producers. From raw chocolate to artisan roasted coffee to Persian-influenced cordials, and more, we got the sense the craft food revolution was starting to happen in Jozi and it was headquartered right here in the Maboneng Precinct. Their self-proclaimed goal is “to encourage inner city lifestyle, learn lots about sustainable living, and provide a relaxed and creative space for our friends to spend their leisure time”.

Falling on a Sunday each week (and the first Thursday night of the month), the atmosphere is relaxed but hip, set against a backdrop of cool music. With an indoor and outdoor area, space to lounge around, and plenty to peruse and purvey, it’s the kind of place that can happily consume a Sunday afternoon.

The market happens every Sunday at Arts on Main from 10am - 3pm.
