There is so much to look at you will be spoiled for choice. The crafts are amazing and some are incredibly rare, some masks for example. Most unusual. It's definitely worth a visit.

Situated next to the Rosebank mall, many stalls with original African souvenirs. If you are not traveling to other centres this is a good place to purchase souvenirs. They are more costly here. The selection is vood. Close to the Rosebank HOHO stop.

I think the rooftop us only on Sundays, and the craft market is there all the time. The rooftop is much larger, but generally most of the items are similar.

The African craft market opens at 9AM and closes at 6 PM everyday. The rooftop market, as mentioned by the previous respondent, is open only on Sundays. There are many restaurants inside and around the Rosebank Mall. PS... More
