Hidden Gems: Arts On Main

Near the freeway, on the outskirts of Jeppestown in Johannesburg, hides a tiny outdoor food & design market. It’s not too dissimilar to the markets you’d see in San Francisco or New York: chock-full of street food along with ample beer flowing. The scene  is laid back, the graffiti plenty, and the people friendly. There’s also Africa’s first design museum right around the street. From the look of it, Joburg’s  going through a serious transformation these past years, with the market as only one of the many indicators that things are definitely on the mend down this side of the equator.

You can learn more about the market on their website. Definitely don’t miss heading there if you’re in town on a Sunday afternoon.
