Surrounded by the rolling mountain ranges of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, and blanketed by the high blue of the African sky, the Midlands Country Market is the perfect little retreat from the buzz of city life.
This country market is the charming meeting place of many of the locals that cherish time spent amidst breath-taking surrounds, as they savour the views of the Caversham Valley on the third Sunday of every month.
Great food is on offer and ranges from breakfast pizzas, Gunther’s German sausages, and freshly baked bread to cream teas, waffles, fresh vegetables, Jersey milk and yoghurt, and farm-fresh eggs. Plants, herbs, and honey are best enjoyed and bought at this market too. In addition, there are clothes, gemstones, beadwork, natural skincare products, as well as outstanding craft beers to be enjoyed while drinking in these incredible views. This combination of arts, crafts, food and beverages make this a really special spot to enjoy with friends, family and neighbours.
While the scenery is enough to keep just about anyone transfixed, there is sometimes extra entertainment. Visitors may be treated to a bagpipe performance from time to time, which is always fun and festive.
