Farmer's Markets in Pretoria

Saturday, January 7, 2012  at 4:02 AM
Pretoria (South Africa) was lovely, but one of the most memorable experiences there was an early morning farmer's market that Chris and I went to with our CS host.  This market only happens for a few hours one day a week, and you have to get there very early--we went at 6:00 AM  and the entire market ends around 9:00AM!  It was a bustling mixture of local foods, handicrafts, farm-fresh produce, and cut flowers.

Roses are grown en mass locally and shipped worldwide for sale--I admired the brightness of these ones

There were plenty of ducks and geese scoping out the market for free treats

A jaffle shop, where bread is filled with savory meat and rice, then toasted into a round pocket shape (with the savory bits as the filling).  A local snack and very tasty!
