Highly recommend this market. We went not really knowing what to expect. You can get everything you would want to buy here. Be prepared to negotiate to get the best price possible. We bought some terrific carvings for a fraction of the price and twice the size of what is being offered in the tourist shops. You can get here... More

Plenty to browse and the bric and brac stalls have a few gems. Traders are not at all in your face so you can saunter round without any hassle. Good food stalls as well so grab a bite when you are there. Don't miss going.

The one thing I appreciate about Roof Market is that there is no plastic junk, if I can call it that. This is a true market with something for everyone. There are vintage goods, food, African curios, jewelry and clothes. Great outing. Take some cash as not all vendors have machines.

I spotted a sign for this thriving, bustling market when I went into the mall and I'm so glad we went. I could have spent an absolute fortune there. There are so many different types of stall. Crafts, clothing, spices, organic vegetables, cheese (really delicious cheeses), plus coffee stalls and a food court with some of the most delicious food... More

Worth a visit. Enter the Rosebank Mall and take the elevator to the top floor. There is security to guide you through the parking lot. I realize now that most of the items in this market can be purchased in other areas throughout JNB. Some of the vendors carry the exact items. I didn’t eat anything however I did find... More
