True Grit Farmers Market, Helderberg, South Africa — 14 Comments

  1. I love local markets. It’s something I always do whenever I travel. No better way to support local growers while learning about regional produce (and eating yummy food of course!).

  2. I love being able to shop for daily veggies but we do not have that option here, sounds like a nice famers market when it is open.

  4. How wonderful to have a market where you can buy fresh butter! I’d go back just for that. 🙂

  5. I love buying the fresh produce too. With the other stuff it is nice but we often make the items at home 🙂

    • I do ot usually buy prepared goodies as I would end up with too much at home as well!

  6. It can be difficult to get a true Farmer’s Market off the ground, but it sounds like you had quite a run around and it’s all a bit of a hit and miss affair.
    Unless I did my calculations wrong (always a possibility) the prices seem very high, too. Is your Rand worth about 95cAu? If that’s correct, that’s some very pricey cheese!

    • You have your calculations spot on! Cheese is not cheap here. How did the butter compare?

  7. An interesting visit, Tandy. I don’t go to farmers markets as I have had bad experiences with them. Cape Town is probably better in this regard.

    • The only one I would go to in JNB is the Waldorf Market. But I have not been for the past 17 years!
