Hillcrest, in South Africa’s scenic province of KwaZulu-Natal, is home to the Botha’s Hill Market, which is an artisanal craft market and a food market for visitors of all ages. This market is held every Sunday, from 10h00 to 15h00, on the old main road of Botha’s Hill. This market is all about enjoying delicious food, impressive crafts, and family time within pretty surrounds.

Hungry visitors will love exploring the many food stalls, which include exotic tastes and influences. Visitors to the market can look forward to tasting Zulu, Thai, Turkish, Indian and Indonesian dishes, which are offered alongside the irresistible burgers, popcorn, pancakes and pizzas. Even a hearty bacon-and-eggs breakfast is on offer. Fresh produce is available at two stalls, so bring your grocery list.

In terms of arts and crafts, guests to the market are spoilt for choice. There are beautiful pieces of needlework, intricate origami, and mosaic goodies for the home. These all make for great gifts too. Fashionistas will love spending time perusing the designer clothing stalls, or discovering special finds in the vintage section. There is plenty of jewellery too. For a real treat, previously loved, genuine, colourful sarees (or saris, a traditional Indian dress) are available here too.

Little ones have plenty to see and do at the Botha’s Hill Market. The stilt walkers, pony rides, mega bubbles and jumping castle are always a hit, and give parents a chance to relax while their children are having the times of their lives. There are even two old-school kiosks with the traditional funfair games. Children can throw balls to hit a target and win a prize.

The tea garden invites visitors to sit down, drink a hot coffee or a cool fruit juice, and listen to relaxing tunes. This tea garden is famous for its home-made carrot cake and fruit cake.

Quite a special feature of the Botha’s Hill Market is the collection of stalls that are invited to the market for free. These are charity stalls, raising money for good causes; and they include the Animal Anti-Cruelty League, Yenzanathi Feeding Scheme Community Project, Kitty Action, and the Menagerie. They also include a variety of local craftsmen and –women who are unable to afford a stall, but who create gorgeous beading, woodwork, wirework and metal work, which they sell here.

This ever-growing market is an intriguing place to explore. It should be noted that, while rain is often forecast for this part of KwaZulu-Natal, it does not always appear. So, for an accurate idea of the weather call Natalie.
