Markets Markets Markets

At this time of year specifically, loads of little christmas markets creep out of every corner and suddenly on one Saturday there is an overwhelming lot to choose from! If this was some super established blog or just a different  kind of blog, I would go on to list my "Top 10 Favourite Christmas Markets" or write a "How to find the best buys during the Christmas Craziness"...

Instead, I will tell you about my one favourite, year-long running market. It has no designer labels, and no plethora of delicious organic food but is the best in its simplicity and truthful nature: The Boeremark in Silverton, Pretoria.

Full of home style rusks and bread, locally grown fresh produce, fresh flowers (including the 'protea guy' who always has an amazing selection of fresh proteas), old farm-style brewed coffee and the list goes on.

We try and go a twice month, and more often than not we succeed! Here is a peek into the Boeremark from 2011:
