A Weekend of Markets

We love going to markets and it seems to me that the Durban market scene is burgeoning.  It feels like we are spoilt for choice every time we decide to visit a local market. 

Shongweni Market

Last Saturday we decided to take our visitors from the Netherlands to the Shongweni Market.  Shongweni Market generally ticks all the boxes for us: it's close to home, there are wonderful choices for breakfast, there is a nice "countrified" vibe, most of the stalls stock home-produced produce and dogs are welcome.  What more could we ask for?

The Morning Trade

On Sunday we decided to stop by The Morning Trade for brunch.  This is another of our favourite markets - there are always wonderful brunch choices and the coffee is excellent.  This market has plenty of deliciously interesting food stalls, freshly baked breads, baked goodies and the most delicious almond milk (a favourite of mine!) and fresh lemonade on offer.  There is definitely a slant towards organic, healthy choices and vegetarians won't go hungry at this market.  The Morning Trade has recently moved from its previous location on Morrison Street, to Station Road - near to the old Lion Match factory.
