Hillcrest Country Market

Laura and I finally went to see the market on Sunday 9 March.  The market is held inside Hillcrest Primary School's hall.  This is also the school that Laura attends so it was funny that we took so long to go and look at it.

This first thing I saw and smelled was freshly made coffee from the Jooma Coffee stand mmmmmm.  Competing with the coffee was the smell of onions and boerewors cooking.  Laura and I walked around outside the hall looking at the various stalls.  I really enjoyed looking at the second hand book stall but unfortunately there were no Nancy Drew books for Laura.

We went inside the hall to see what the stalls were.  There were jams and curds, bags, doll clothes, décor such as cushions, girls dress up clothes, lots of food such as chips, corn dogs, samoosas, wacky waffles on a stick, gorgeous flowers and delicious looking cupcakes.  There were also a few tables where you could sit and eat.

There was even a place where you could have a mini spa experience with a foot or shoulder massage.  If you have small kids there is a lovely place for them to play and you could drink your Jooma coffee while watching them.

I only bought lemon curd, raspberry curd and marmalade.  Laura bought herself one of her favourite foods : Biltong!

We enjoyed our visit and it is great to see that the market has a lot of support.

If you love visiting markets, why not take a drive up to Hillcrest.
