About Rosebank African Craft Market

The African craft market in Rosebank in Johannesburg has turned shopping into a pretty unique experience, particularly for visitors and tourists to the area for whom an introduction to the rather exotic art and culture of Africa is a new experience.

Did you know? Established in 1993, the African Craft Market of Rosebank is open seven days a week and is a vibrant display of African entrepreneurship.

A range of arts and crafts is on display by skilled African artists from the Ivory Coast, the Cameroon, Zimbabwe and the Congo, to name but a few of the countries represented here, and the fare includes fabrics, clothing, jewellery and ceramics as well as interior décor bits and pieces – it’s standard to leave South African shores with an ubiquitous wooden giraffe, or an African mask in tow.

Rosebank’s African craft indoor market, on the corner of Cradock Avenue and Baker Street is a feast of all things African, and locals and those who travel to South Africa need little invitation to enter the market, which is open seven days a week. The atmosphere is vibrant and tour buses regularly arrive with their tour groups to experience the distinctive range of wares that represent the unique rhythm of the African continent.

What makes it worth the trip is that the market is bang up against the mall of Rosebank, itself a feast of shops and entertainment that includes a cinema nouveau for art movies, an endless stream of excellent restaurants and coffee shops, any number of boutiques and major clothing chains and a supermarket.

Add the always popular Rooftop flea market to the mix, open on Sundays from 9am to 5pm, and you can understand why Rosebank has a steady stream of market fanatics passing through.
