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
The market was lovely in the early-morning sunlight
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!

We loved the bustling atmosphere in the market!
