Saturday morning in Jozi


Yesterday we went to Juta street in the heart of Braamfontein. There is some serious urban regeneration taking place in this part of town and this makes my heart beat a little faster. My husband's blog will feature a more comprehensive look at the architecture and other cool shops in Juta street. My post here will focus more on the Neighbourgoods market. These guys are doing something amazing. It started in Cape Town and finally Jozi is also blessed with the presence of responsible organizers, as well as talented and mind-blowing vendors. The space is amazing - tucked safely into the urban fabric, with really nice get-together spaces, clever design details, aesthetically pleasing furniture and good finishes.
This quote from their website says it all:
The Neighbourgoods Market is an independent initiative founded in 2006 by entrepreneurs Justin Rhodes and Cameron Munro, whose aim is to revive and reinvent the Public Market as a civic institution.
Thanks to my liefie, who took some of the photos below whilst I was fiddling with my new toy...more on that later.

This market will be open every Saturday from 09:00am to 15:00. Go there, experience city life the way it should be.
