About Bruma Lake Flea Market

Bruma Lake Flea Market, very close to Eastgate shopping mall in the southern suburbs, is one of the biggest flea markets in South Africa, and you’ll find almost anything you can think of here.

Did you know? Bruma is an array of West African wood crafts, designer clothing, wire art, homemade toys, plastic gadgets, arts and crafts, curios, funky second-hand clothing, one-off fashions, furniture, textiles, and antiques from over 630 traders.

Bruma Lake flea market stands on an old sewerage catchment area turned lakeside market, mall and commercial zone. Bruma Lake mall, in a similar vein to what was called Randburg Waterfront, now Brightwater Commons out in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, is a string of restaurants and shops around a body of water, resembling a waterside village.

The Bruma flea market is a great place to browse for bargains and, even though it is past its heyday, Bruma continues to draw the crowds, particularly over a weekend not least because of the exciting line up of stalls, fast food and the live ethnic entertainment. It is also popular with parents who can leave their children at Kids’ World whilst they browse.

Bruma, which is just 18 kilometres from Sandton city and 15 minutes drive from OR Tambo Airport, is also close to the major arterial routes of the R24, N12 and N3 Eastern bypass.
