An interjection has to made between these Durban posts, as I have to share the exciting news that what was once only a Cape Town attraction has hit the streets of Johannesburg. Juta street to be precise. The Neighbourgoods Market launched two weeks ago at 73 Juta Street in Braamfontein.
What a success! The streets were lined with cars from 9am until 3pm and the vendors were swamped with hungry hippies. I do love going to visit markets because there is always such a great mix of people. You get your families out on their weekly outing while mom tries to stop little Jimmy from stealing a chocolate brownie, and then you get your young hipsters dressed to stand out and just loving the mellow vibe and the subtle buzz of frying eggs and brewing coffee.
If I could go to this market every Saturday I would! It is so easy to find and for those of you who, like me, don’t trust your GPS here is a map to exactly where you need to go.
Take your cash and leave your troubles because as you step foot into this market you will only be swept away by the sheer magnificence that it has to offer. Flowers, jams, cheese, bread, chocolate, coffee, pancakes, smoothies, tarts, pizzas and even beer and cocktails, there is something for everyone at the Neighbourgoods Market.
