I didn’t want to like the Neighbourgoods Market, I really didn’t. A Cape Town export, brought to us by the guys who turned an old biscuit mill into an award-winning market. There they were, in our city. Teaching us how to market the Cape Town way. And who puts glitter on a poster anyway? But holy panda’s toenails, did I eat my words, as I sipped on my deelicious mojito and wondered around the wonderful space those Cape Town guys had created.
Situated on two levels of a building in Juta Street, Braamfontein, the layout is spacious, the stalls (a mixture of Cape Town and Joburg vendors) interesting and varied, the parking, a breeze, the food, delicious and the atmosphere, terrific. I’m converted. I even bought myself a bunch of fynbos, which now sits in our lounge, looking all pretty and Cape Town like. And I hardly ever even feel guilty when I look at it. Joburg, you make a very gracious host. Neighbourgoods, you’re welcome any time.
