    Xquizified vibes
    I've been going to Victoria Yards for years and the energy is always lovely, the people the entertainment and the food. The fish chips spot and the cheese capital guys were a highlight. I recommend everyone to experience Victoria Yards and connect with Makers Valley the community initiative.

    Best Sunday in Joburg
    Victoria Yards is one of the best markets in Joburg. There’s a permanent fish and chips shop, a bakery with some of the best carrot cake in the world and a large variety of stalls. They also have live music sometimes which is awesome! Great Sunday in Joburg

    First Sunday is fantastic!
    We had been to Victoria Yards twice to do a cycling tour with Micro-Adventure Tours and always thought it was beautiful. Great to be able to come back for First Sunday. Wonderful atmosphere, fantastic music, gorgeous flowers and planting, great market, galleries, and food stalls….and a gin distillery! Really fun place to visit.

    Victoria Yards is a must visit in Joburg
    First Sundays are incredible! Great food, music, open studios, and shopping. They offer free tours to get to know the area. I was so impressed by the Pulp book studio - the artist took the time to share his knowledge of book arts in Joburg.

    Only arrived 20 mins ago….and I’m in love with this place already.
    …. a friendly welcome by Jerry sets the tone of how wonderful Victoria Yards is. He gave us a bit of the interesting history of the place. Can’t wait to see all the craft workshops. But for now we are enjoying a gorgeous lunch, coffee and the world’s best carrot cake!
