A group of locals got together in 2009 and decided to put together a 100% local community goods market at the Sandveldhuisie Museum in Citrusdal, and it’s gone from strength to strength.
Being a farming community, Citrusdal is definitely not short of fresh produce and other tantalising goodies, offering visitors and locals some top notch nosh spots at this country market. Expect to find organic vegetables; homebakes; preserves and fresh proteas on sale, along with legendary fresh bread; sausages; cheese and homemade yoghurt. Quench your thirst with smoothies, ginger beer and real lemonade.
Being a citrus town, there are obviously loads of oranges and lemons up for grabs, include something called ‘salt lemon’ which we’re pretty sure must involve some tequila consumption! There are plenty of tarts to be seen at the local market, all of which are made from pastry, and the adventurous types should be attracted to the lethal looking homemade chilli sauce on offer.
The market moves every so often to different venues, so do ask around to see where they’ll be appearing the next time you’re in town. Support the local community and take a basket along to get your fill of delicious homemade authentic Citrusdal grub.
