When all this relaxing is done, Sundays also mean a visit to one of Jozi’s favourite markets, Market on Main. Market on Main, as the name suggests, takes place at Arts on Main, in the Maboneng Precinct. It runs from 10am to 3pm each and every Sunday and also on the first Thursday of the month, from 7pm to 11pm.
