1 Fox Market Shed

Located within the 1 Fox Precinct, a cluster of cleverly converted historic warehouses in the heart of Joburg's old mining district, the 1 Fox Market Shed is a weekly market that offers up an array of exciting street food and unique local crafts and clothing, plus live music and lots of space for kids to run around.

Top food vendors at the market include Smokey BBQ, known for their outstanding pulled pork and beef brisket, Greek seafood masters Prawn Stars with their delicious sauces, Chilli Mania (Korean cuisine), Von Pickartz Belgian Waffles whose decadent waffles are not to be missed, Copper Cafe for coffee, Pionieri Pizzeria's incredible Neapolitan style pizzas that are so good it's addictive and Heroin(es) Cafe, who make the most outrageously rich and chocolatey brownies.

The spacious market shed with its double volume ceilings opens out onto a large courtyard where it shares space with other must-visit ventures like the Good Luck Bar, a top local live music venue named for a saloon which is believed to have operated from here more than 100 years ago.

In June 2016 two more major food and entertainment attractions joined the precinct: the Mad Giant, an awe-inspiring craft brewery and bar with a wraparound beer garden and meccano-inspired interior design by local design whiz Haldane Martin, and Urbanologi, a sexy Asian fusion food restaurant that is headed by chef Angelo Scirocco (formerly of Cape Town's highly acclaimed Chef’s Warehouse and Canteen on Bree Street). Future development plans in the works include a craft vodka and gin distillery, while Assemblage, a studio space for young artists, has also recently opened in the same block.

The area has its own guarded car park in Alexander Street. Note that there is no ATM in the area.
