Spoil yourself with a lovely aroma of Indian spices and food at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for replicas of bags, footwear or clothes you will find a wide variety of choices to choose from.

Visited the Fordsburg Square flea market on Saturday afternoon. Had a great Chicken Tikka meal. you've got to try the "Malai Boti", which are chicken cubes in tikka sauce, grilled over the braai. That gets served with Naan bread, which is Yumm.

Such a pleasure to shop. Very quaint but has everything under one roof. There should however be one or two atms that should installed. CAPITEC, FNB to name at least two most popular ones.
The food selection is great and also lots of yummy snacks.

Real SA indian experience where west meets east and mingles to a sort of melody. The experience is best at night and the atmosphere is electric. The limited parking and dark back roads leaves a taste of danger and excitement wrapped in a base of nostalgia.

A Flea Market with an Indo-Pakistan Atmosphere.
May 2018 • Solo
This market has real atmosphere of a flea market. Mostly, cheap goods with an array of Indian restaurants with sprinkle of well known franchise business such Nando’s, KFC, Wimpy, Chicken Licken, Adega, Calistos and Burger King. There are Shawarma and Turkish restaurants, Romain’s Pizza, Pizza Hut and other pizza places. Food is the highlight but so is Indian and Muslim clothing.

You can also get a cheap but nice haircut. The atmosphere is different and it’s mainly a Indian flea market. It can be busy, not always well kept and an interesting visit if one just wants to have a meal, haircut or a walkabout. Don’t stray too far. Just keep within the precinct of the stalls and shops.

Authentic Indian experience
Dec 2017 • Couples
As a person of IndoPak-origin, Fordsburg is definitely my favorite spot in Johannesburg. I have always complained that the food sold as Indian-Pakistani food outside of the Indian subcontinent simply does not qualify as our authentic cousin. Until I went to South Africa and visited Fordsburg.

As you can tell the biggest attraction for me is authentic India-Pakistani food. They have the tastiest Chicken biryani I have eaten outside of Karachi. Pani puri, jalebi, falooda, kulfi, pakoras, Peshwari karhai, tikka kebabs (Indian-Pakistani BBQ), you name it and Fordsburg will have it.

If you are in Johannesburg and wish to try authentic Indian-Pakistani food or buy spices and typical Indian-Pakistani vegetables., you now know where to go. However, please bear in mind that it is former township where rather low to middle income South Africans live. This means, do not expect high level of hygiene or perfect streets. The streets are often crowded with cars and people, there are annoying beggars and loud Bollywood music is usually played... Just like, a busy quarter in an Indian or Pakistani city. The vendors are friendly and people on the streets might be look at you curiously, if you are Caucasian. We never had any unpleasant experience - no pick-pockets, no snatching or something like that. Been there several times and always felt safe. Just remember to take precautions for South Africa.

Tip: Take cash (ZAR) with you as, unlike the rest of the Johannesburg, many street vendors will not accept cards.

Just remember to take

We have been in Fordsburg several times and never encountered something unpleasant
