“African stuff”
Review of Bruma Lake flea market - CLOSED

Bruma Lake flea market
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 22, 2012

The market has recently been renovated and carries the usual African artifacts. There is a big section next door selling mainly Chinese stuff - clothes, electronics, plastic ware etc. My wife got some good bargains in the African buys. Do not feel shy to bargain.

The municipality is taking long to upgrade this section.They have left the market section halfdone for a very long time.The area used to be the best tourist attraction and is now haven for thugs.

Bruma Lake offers little ambience to an already mediocre experience of Gauteng. You will be better off getting something in your hotel lobby instead.

A great place to buy African Art & Craft. The Whole Market has shifted to a well constructed building. Neat & clean place with Eateries, ATM etc. Bargain well especially if you are a tourist visiting Johannesburg.

THe place does not exist it is a dump. As of yesterday it is all boarded up and it is a construction site. The World Flea market around the corner is just as bad - most of the shops are empty and signs all over showing where prayer room that is all that is dominant. Poor shop owners - waste of time!
