This market oozes with stereotypical country charm. It’s almost mandatory to pack up the family and dog, take a sturdy basket and arrive early. Treat yourself with breakfast and, from your vantage point on a hay bale, decide your method of attack. Peruse stalls at a leisurely pace as hands-on producers passionately talk you through their wares from traditional English sausages to decadent baked goods, handcrafted organic cheeses, breads and rustic French staples like terrines and rillettes. You’ll also find Middle Eastern and Mediterranean specialities from baklava to falafel. If you’re shopping with a conscience you can buy organic veg or a pre-installed, irrigated system to grow your own organic vegetables.
“Our aim is for people to realise the importance of purchasing locally produced, every day, items such as bread, milk, cheese, vegetables, fish and meat… as well as more luxury items such as homemade cakes and pies. Knowing where your food is made, grown, reared or produced will ensure quality & peace of mind. It can actually be a less expensive option as Farmers’ Markets cut out the middle man, not forgetting it is also a more environmentally friendly way to shop!”
When: Open every Saturday from 6.30am to 10.30am.
Where: 1 Fraser Rd, Outer West Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa
