This last weekend I went to the launch Saturday at the Neighbourgoods Market in Juta street Braamfontein (affectionately know as Braamies), and I just have to say it’s a MUST MUST DO!
Braamies had a wonderful energy and vibe with hipsters, families and cool kids all heading to the market.
Now for the warning it is pricey overall with plain cinnamon sugar crepe/pancake going for R30 but it is well worth it. Especially if you go early, get a table + bench on the rooftop and enjoy brunch or lunch with friends.
Be prepared, come with cash and shopper bags for everything you’ll be buying. There are stalls for everyone; Beer brewers, South Africa’s own Buffalo Mozzarella, charcuterie, lemonade (that’s fantastic in a caipirinha), Belgian waffles, pastries galore and I could go on and on.
There is also a clothing/fashiony section I saw some really cute baby clothes that I must get for the kiddie winks I know.
Last and not least some fantastic morning cocktails! Damn that bloody mary
