Enjoyed a great Sunday afternoon eating, drinking and buying all kinds of local crafts. This is a must visit if you are looking for a fun Sunday morning or afternoon. The Market on Main closes at 4:30 but there are plenty of other places in the neighborhood that stay open later.

We visited early in the day (around 11) and not many were open. The open Art Gallery were friendly with very interesting projects.
They are open on Saturday and that maybe a better time to visit.

I knew nothing about this place and glad I was brought here. So full of life, people, and art. A true treasure.

Love this place. Informal, artsy and bustling with all sorts of people. Get there early to get a seat in the restaurant or you will stand or sit on the ground. Lovely bar for late afternoon with dancing if you fancy. Great selection of foods at various stalls and lovely artwork and clothing for sale. Go spend a Sunday, time well spent.

Arts on Main is a collection of art retailers and also arty souvenir and handmade craft shops. You can spend an hour or so wandering in and out of the shops and if you walk away without any purchases I would be surprised! The proprietors of the shops were friendly and anxious to tell me about their wares or tell me about the exhibition on display!

I attended a book launch at Arts on Main. What a wonderful spot for a relaxing reflective gathering. The scenery and artwork is wonderful. Great place for tourists to visit.

Nice couple of streets, with good cloth stores and street market, and a very good Ethiopian restaurant.
It is a pleasant place, but too separated from the rest of the city centre. Joburg is a complex city, so this is expected.

I have known about this place but never for a minute thought of visit. I realized that Johannesburg despite being not what it used to be there are a lot of attractions that will blow your mind

Lovely place to hang out and eat, drink and see some interesting art/crafts. Lovely things to buy and some very talented people selling their work.
