Everything one can think of to buy, is at this Oriental Market/Plaza. I buy material / haberdashery here mostly. Very good prices and cheaper than at one's supermarket/hypermarket. If you want Indian Spices, this is the place to go...

The oriental plaza is situated on Fordburg, Johannesburg's Muslim district a mile west of the CBD. The plaza is one of several interesting spots to poke your nose into as you savour the smells of the middle-eastern influenced eateries. Known for cheap fabric and "prom-dresses", the Plaza is just another market. Don't expect to be blown away, but definitely worth a walk! Oh, and eat a samoosa as a snack on the go!

The Oriental Plaza is a great place to shop for anythinh your heart might desire. From Fabrics to household articles to Art. Certainly worth a visit. Watch your bag! It could be a bit trying for people traveling on their own. The way there also a bit doddgy.
