About 27 Boxes Night Market

On the doorstep of some of the finest Johannesburg accommodation options (and a little further afield from others) is the vibrant suburb of Melville. And this is the pretty home of the midweek 27 Boxes Night Market, which is 1) free and 2) full of exciting crafts, awesome entertainment, and delicious foods.

27 Boxes takes place every Wednesday from 17h00 to 21h00, making it the perfect way to get rid of the stress of the work week and to unwind, or a great way to fake a mini Friday night.

It is set up in a gorgeous trendy space created by recycled shipping containers; the ideal setting in which to enjoy the skills and products of around 80 different vendors. There are gourmet creations like red velvet cupcakes, steamed dim sum, authentic tacos, or handmade cheeses for hungry visitors.

The craft stalls include a fun mix of handmade leather goods, succulents, fashion items in striking colours, and loads of accessories and other keepsakes. The live music makes for the perfect backing track to a night out with friends, and allows some of the excellent local musicians to perform in a creative, vibey space. This night market is a pet-friendly event, so owners can relax with their pooches and pups, and entrance is free.

The area of Melville surrounding the 27 Boxes Night Market is great for visitors that feel like a night on the town, with quirky watering holes and restaurants. Melville is only 25 minutes from Sandton and just less than an hour from the OR Tambo International Airport.
