Maboneng


Maboneng is so much more than just “Market on Main” or the “Living Room”. I have been to Maboneng before, usually on a Sunday to go to the market, meet with friends and maybe enjoy a drink at the mentioned Living Room. However, I have never really walked around the streets of Maboneng, looked at all the amazing street art that can be found all over, took in the energy this place, listened to some great live music, had a coffee/lunch stop at creative place and just felt so happy to be calling Johannesburg my home. We saw tourist walking around and I was thinking: they come here from Europe or even from America to see this place and it is right outside my door step.

By the way, this is for the locals: they are trying to establish a new monthly market: The Bula Boot market, which basically means nothing else than a boot sale:-) Check it out! It is suppose to happen every last Saturday of the month. More info on the Maboneng website.

I joined a bunch of amazing people: follow them here:

Dawn from The Incidental Tourist  who is a travel writer, beauty seeker and earth advocate; and check out her instagram account, it is pretty creative.

Hein from heinstirred who is a photographer and gourmet hunter; and don’t forget to check out his instagram account too.
