This is well worth going out and about to stroll, buy and eat. Food is good to snack and lunch. But bring sone money, to invest in some of the pretty and handy crafts. Enjoyed it and will go back and back.

Very nice farm and diary. Must go place with kids. Has a very good playground. Quality and variety of the food is quite well. Overcrowded on summer weekends. Has a nice market selling diary and farm products.

It is so good to walk around a market and see real hand-crafted goods, not the factory stuff often on display at other markets. The food stalls are also excellent with a large variety.

If this is the one by the Jan smuts museum, I love it, it seems like it's the one market that re invests to improve and the people tend to be quite friendly. Many unique items and creation to be seen here.

Not only is this one of the best but the new setting at red barn is awesome. Greatest part about the market is the country feel and live bands softly playing in the background. A must for all as there is something for everyone.

Absolutely yes, most welcome. Many dogs are about each week - I'm sure the customary canine etiquette is applicable. Leash and poop control!!!
