“Real crafts in a tranquil atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

I love this market. There is an ethos of courtesy and respect that shames your habitual Jozi brashness out of you and makes you slow down and breathe. Everything on sale is of excellent quality and really produced by honest-to-goodness craftspeople. Not the place for Ye Olde mass-produced Africanne Curios, although a great deal of what is on sale has an "African" feel to it. There are food stalls selling items of the same high quality as everything else and teas and light meals can be had at tables under the trees. Whenever I have been there, there has been a pianist in situ, adding to the relaxed feel. Great place for families.
The market occupies a permanent space on the premises of the Rudolf Steiner School in the Sandton suburb of Bryanston. Opening hours are a bit eccentric - Thursdays and Saturdays until 3pm, and once a month on Thursday evenings in summer.

“Lovely craft and organic food market”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

Visited this market on a thursday only open on Thursday and Saturday, was really surprised at the quality of the merchandise and the reasonable prices. There are places to grab food and drink and the people selling are the people who actually make the goods.
