The place to be… by Anastasia Fugger
It seems as if every Saturday all the young, good-looking and trendy Johannesburgers suddenly crawl out of their holes to intermingle, listen to chilled music, taste delicious food and buy stylish up-and-coming fashion articles at the Neighbourgoods Market in the heart of the city.
The newly launched market is an independent initiative trying to revive and reinvent the public market as an interactive area for Saturday chillers, who value and enjoy organic, delicious food and fun fashion goods. From Organic Pesto, exotic goat-cheese, and Mexican chorizo to designer cupcakes, taste buds will be satisfied, whatever you’re needs. Next to the local food products, the New Designers part of the market features over 30 traders of fashion, jewellery, accessories and much more.
So if you ever happen to be in Joburg on a Saturday, you know where to go! This fun and trendy market is a must see.
