AA few hours spent browsing through the pan-African offerings of the Rosebank Art and Craft Market will reward you with a wide range of authentic African arts and crafts. Here, you'll find artefacts, crafts, art and decor from all over Africa, including authentic African masks, ritual objects, carvings and intricate beadwork. 

 

Rosebank African Craft Market has been voted Johannesburg's premier market for 10 years in a row. Local and international visitors flock to this Johannesburg African Craft Market, attracted by its reputation as a truly pan-African shopping destination. Shoppers walk away with a range of high quality arts, crafts and antiques from all over the continent, after a pleasant day of bargaining with the friendly stall-owners. 

 

Shopping at the market will also give you an insight into the various cultures of Africa, with many of the beautifully crafted objects on offer having cultural significance. 

 

Rosebank African Craft Market in Johannesburg celebrates the spirit of African entrepreneurship and sustains at least 70 skilled African artisans. Some of the countries represented at the market include Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Zimbabwe, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Senegal and Togo. You can buy African masks, clothing, carvings, ceramics, beadwork and jewellery. You can also pick up a lot of recycled art objects, which are fascinating studies in how recycling materials can magically transform what some may consider rubbish into something unique and magical − responsible shopping at its best. 

 

While you can pick up many great souvenirs for the cost of a few rand, the market is also known for its range of African antiques, many of which are rare and collectable. 

 

The Rosebank Mall, located adjacent to the African Craft Market, is one of Johannesburg’s best malls and offers a wide variety of international and local brands and some great restaurants. It’s also conveniently located next to a Gautrain station for easy access from wherever you’re staying in the city. Be sure to check it out when visiting the market which is located on the mall premises near the Starbucks.
