Fun place for handcrafted african items. Get ready for the hustle of the vendors trying to get you to come to their shop, as most craft markets. I wanted a jacket that wasn't in my size and truly impressed how the vendor told me he would make one for me and to return the next day. I did and he had it ready. It's a great place to shop. It's also great that it is indoors.

Our family travelled around South Africa for 3 weeks in February and March 2022 and we had quite some problems getting traditional South African souvenirs. Luckily we came across this market the last day. It is really a perfect place for souvenirs. We bought many things, but were unfortunately almost the only tourists there. If we had more place in our backpacks, we would have bought more. I highly recommend this place.

Fantastic place to Visit and remember to go to the downstairs section as there are many more stalls to view with crafts ranging from South Africa to Kenya to Zimbabwe, it is well worth a visit

It was a nice place to visit, but you really had to look to find unique things or really good deals. Don't be afraid to barter!

When you first enter the market you will see only a few vendors on the ground floor but you will need to venture in and you will find the stairs near the back wall that will lead you to an entire floor downstairs. The craft market is great - it has a good range of African items - there are the African masks, of course, bowls (made from wood or beads), African animals (wood, stone), Ostrich eggs (carved, plain or illustrated), t-shirts, textiles and much much more. The markets are in a lovely, bright, airy building with great lighting so you can see what you are buying. And of course you will need to bring your negotiating skills.

Lots of great stuff to look at but impossible with the pressure tactics of the sales people.
Down in a basement setting is where the most stuff is.

The stalls are well equipped with lots of 'touristy' goods on sale. It's almost certain that the stall holders have an agreement on the price they should be asking. That price is often 5 times over the expected, so barter and barter and barter until you get a reasonable deal. If you speak Afrikaans that always helps !!

This market near the rose bank mall , it’s not connected to the mall it’s outside the mall , best place for handy craft, prices are very reasonable, bargaining is very important , we paid half price after bargaining, beaded animals, beaded jewelry , Wooden items , everything is nicely done, best place for shopping , go by taxi, also one of the sightseeing bus tour stop.

A good stop for picking up gifts, souvenirs or unique artwork for your own pleasure. You will find unique items, handcrated work uniquely African from multiple countries, but also local artisans. Food vendor stalls, and music make for a festive atmosphere.
