Oranjezicht City Farm Market
For as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed visiting markets and if you have a love of food like I do then you tend to find every single market there is close to you and scope out the food and fresh produce on offer. There are so many options at the Oranjezicht City Farm Market – fresh food, organic, gluten free, sugar free, seasonal fruit and vegetables, the ocean breeze, superb coffee, and if you’ve skipped breakfast you can easily get your breakfast or brunch fill on the breads, cheeses, meals and those divine cakes!
What You Can Find At The Local Farm Market
Local or foreign foods like jams, pickles & cheese and there are fruit & vegetables that you probably would not have seen before, so yes, a very inspiring way to spend your Saturday morning if you a market fan, health conscious individual, looking for food inspiration, recipes, in need of a stroll and are in the beautiful mother city!
So much to see, learn, chat, eat and then go home and share your treats with family and friends!
This friendly man (in the image above) had a rather large number of spectators watching him (we were included in the spectator watching) as he patiently broke one egg at a time to fill this large pan of red sauce and as my husband said when I asked him “how does it smell?” he replied ” I don’t really now because everything smells so nice” ah well, the life of an anosmic foodie. Nevertheless, I was still very excited about the goodies that I picked up and when I saw this beautiful Swiss Chard, spring onion and fresh basil among others I didn’t need much else to get me in the mood to cook. Here’s what I did with some of my goodies in this recipe.
I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning but to visit a food and vegetable market and what a pleasure knowing that you are supporting local farmers who bring you fresh produce. I normally don’t have patience to check out every stall because I cant wait to get home and start cooking! These fresh basil leaves made a quick and easy basil pesto recipe.
