  • We love it! We have been to a few craft markets there. The atmosphere is fantastic, there are activities to interest the kids (Especially at the Christmas market) and live music. I am almost sure anyone would find something they could enjoy, there is so much to see and a wide variety of foods (almost a global extravaganza of food) to try.
  • Great place for the kids, animals and families to walk around. Enjoying every minute in and around the venue. The farmers market has plenty to offer with great deals and fresh produce directly from some farmers many interesting art works and things to buy. Live music and plenty to drink and eat
  • Fantastic farmers market for the whole family. Lots of activities for kids. Homemade foods and clothes. Has a bit of everything. You can spend hours here. Lots of new ideas for home goods.
  • Trendy place with a really nice selection of home made foods, clothing and arty goods. The range of foods surprised me and prices were reasonable. Home made leather goods such as handbags were pretty well made. I expect that only the better vendors get rental space. You can bring anyone here from very young to old. Folk come here from far and wide.
  • A wonderful farmers market in the middle of nowhere - great for kiddies with their pony rides, quad bike track and ample relaxation areas for them to run around. They have a huge range of unique and wonderful food stalls, fresh produce, craft beers, and a whole lot of home industry and other products on sale. The place is huge, you can't get to every stall in one visit. And it's quite far out of Durban so it feels like you're going on a trip, and the views of the surrounding valley and waterfall are breathtaking. A great outing place for a day.
