From pomegranate smoothies to designer cupcakes, organic chocolate to chilli tequila and fresh produce to fashion, the Braamfontein Neighbourgoods Market opened to a record 3500 people at 73 Juta Street (diagonally opposite the colourful strip shops and galleries of 70 Juta Street) and is the latest addition to Adam Levy’s Play Braamfontein portfolio.
Envisioned by Levy to be housed in a building famous for its Eduardo Villa 1970s façade, the Neighbourgoods Market is a welcome relief to claustrophobic underground shopping malls with its outdoor eating rooftop and panoramic views of the city.
As unofficial mayor of Braamies, Levy’s commitment to urban regeneration and cultural reformation in Braamfontein can be summed up in his own words: “This area, distressed for so long, will ultimately become the aspirational epicentre of creativity in Johannesburg- fueled by the passion, sincerity and enthusiasm of a new generation who believe wholeheartedly that tomorrow will bring in an even better day than today”
The Braamfontein Neighbourgoods Market, 73 Juta Street (corner De Beer Street), is open every Saturday come rain or shine form 9:00 – 15:00.
Participating traders include: &Union breweries, Origin artisan coffee roasters and Nigiro tea’s, Fine & Raw chocolates, Richard Bosman & The Charcuterie, Buffalo Ridge mozzarella & Lazanou organic vineyards.
