Rosebank Art and Craft Market

Don’t be fooled by the entrance or the name – a surprise of continental proportions awaits in this underground den in Rosebank, just next to the entrance to the Rosebank Mall. Make sure to head downstairs to the lower level to find the market-proper (what you see at ground floor level is but a mere glimpse!).

Probably Johannesburg's largest and most well-known craft market, this is a one-stop-shop for all your African souvenir needs, from impressive life-size beaded sculptures to must-have wooden carved giraffes. With traders from across the continent you can find the widest range of hand-crafted items such as carved wooden chests, colourful paintings, West African masks, local shweshwe and batik fabrics, those quintessential Big Five figurines, handbags, leatherware, brightly coloured Afro-chic fashion and so much more. 

For African souvenir shopping, you won't find a better market than this in Johannesburg. ‘This is Africa. We bargain’ is the motto of market traders here, so don't be afraid to barter over prices. Most traders are also able to make custom designs if you're after something specific. 


This attraction is within close walking distance of the Rosebank Gautrain Station.
