Hidden in the corner of the Joburg CBD is Fox Junction Event Venue, a market with everything under one roof but with a different kind of vibe. What was once mining warehouses was refurbished to make a food market that has turned out to be more than that. It doesn’t look that attractive from the outside, but once you walk through the doors, you’ll see all the beauty inside. The atmosphere is more relaxed. With it’s high roof and the lights that make it look like daytime even at night, you’ll have a treat here.
From the main entrance there is Happy Me to help you kick start your market experience with their coffee, bubble tea, superfruit drinks and snacks. Joziburg Deli /Joburg Places will be on hand to serve you full meals and more tasty foods.
Unlike most of Joburg’s gourmet food markets, the Sheds serves lunch on weekdays (except Mondays). The Canopy and the Marshall Street Traders are also open from 12pm – 3pm on Fridays. The entire market runs Saturdays and Sundays, with a variety of dishes to choose from: wraps, Indian and Asian, cuisine, seafood, and some local dishes.
For those with a good eye for art, fashion and craft, take your time walking around the market to see what’s on display. The Arcade Gallery hosts selected exhibitions. Most of the materials used by the seamstresses are African with good prints that will make you feel like you are carrying Africa with you wherever you go when wearing them. There are plenty of handicrafts that can make good gifts. Let your eyes do the talking. You may find that one perfect item to remember your trip.
Party time can’t be missed. The Good Luck Bar offers live music and sport screenings. There are craft beers, alcoholic beverages , wines and soft drinks.
The main food market is open on Saturdays and Sundays. The entire market is open every evening of the last Friday of the month. But there are lots of special events, so check their website for full details.http://www.foxjunction.co.za
