The Shongweni Farmers Market is on the N3, 30kms towards Pietermaritzburg from Durban and if you live in this area you would be silly not to get up early one Saturday morning (you need to get there for 7am).
You can spend a good few hours browsing the stalls, shopping for fresh produce, delicious fruity jams, fat olives, preserves and perhaps a delicious cake for tea time.
If early mornings are not your thing then help yourself out with a caffeine kick - freshly brewed coffee is available at the market as are decadent pancakes and homemade bread. Now that is worth getting out of bed for!
