Johannesburg is the capital city of Gauteng and is the springboard for millions of international tourists every year to explore South Africa. It is the epicentre of commerce and business, and is constantly abuzz with things to do and see.
It is within the heart of this urban hub that the Fourways Farmers’ Market is nestled, albeit rather unexpectedly. More specifically, it is on the corner of Montecasino Boulevard and William Nicol Drive. This market is designed to expose visitors to fresh, local foodstuffs with plenty of innovative twists and tweaks. Situated within the serene scenes of a nursery, this market is all about celebrating the wonderful flavours and, often, the health benefits of artisanal goods, without ever relying on imported or mass produced items and brands.
Thanks to the wide array of goods on offer, the Fourways Farmers’ Market attracts an equally diverse group of visitors; ranging from students enjoying a cold beer and families languishing on hay bales on the lawn to food critics searching for the best quality ingredients and those with dietary requirements turning to speciality stalls.
The vendors are excited about their produce and happy to engage with browsers. Visitors can look forward to finding organic cheeses, artisanal breads, a range of homemade preserves and sauces, Mauritian pâtés, smoothies, superfoods, organic coffee and tea, seasonal fruit, deli meats, raw honey, propolis products, fresh flowers, organic beauty products, organic cleaning products, pet treats, arts and crafts, fresh coconuts and coconut products, biscuits and rusks, homemade ice-creams and frozen yoghurts, and a range of bake goods. Craft beers are also on offer, as is wine, which is especially popular as South Africa is one of the world’s top wine-making regions. There are also plenty of things for little ones to see and do.
This market is quieter and less bustling than many others; providing a comfortable, relaxed ambience in which to shop and browse local produce.
