Sunday Main Street Life- The Maboneng Precinct


Morning Flashers!!

I have been scarce around these parts of late and for this I do apologize. Alas, it has not been in vain!

I’ve been rampaging, raging and razzling around Joburg lately with the crew and have so much to be excited about. For some time now, we’ve all been meaning to venture out to Arts on Main. Based in the Maboneng Precinct in the Joburg CBD, this massive warehouse is home to some of Joburgs little treasures. A variety of tantalizing cuisine from paella to dumplings and from a 9 layered red velvet cake to passion fruit macaroons, you’ll fall inlove with not only the array of delicious-ness but the atmosphere. It’s the kind of culture that’s only available at this time, this place with great food & beer, lemonade and of course mojito’s!!

Here’s what we got up to:

If you’re looking for a culturally enriching afternoon, then Arts on Main is definitely one of those things you have to do. The food market is situated downstairs and is nothing short of amazing. Upstairs you’ll find a quaint fashion market stocked some vintage fashion, Jozi inspired jewelry and a few odds and ends to accent your home with.

The other stunning little find was a gallery upstairs that is covered from to wall with a collection of photographs printed on canvas. The idea behind this was to take kids from the street and equip them with a camera in an effort to inspire them and teach them the art of photography. For me, this was one of those things that made my day.

Again, thank you to all my friends for taking the trip. What an awesome way to spend the weekend with a bunch of stunning friends.
