Saturday saw the start of the new City Bowl Market on Hope. I went along to check it out and this is what it looked like:
I love shopping in markets so I do hope that this one lasts. pardon the pun.
Its centrally located with ample parking outside on the street.
One of the highlights for me was the fresh fruit and veg stand at the entrance. Phenomanal value with bags of apples and pears for R5 The pomegranates were also R5 which I consider an utter bargain as they are currently around R25 in mainstream retail outlets. I bought quite a few. I adore the the deep intense juice and at that price I will be sending those seeds through my juicer regularly,spooning them over my fat free vanilla yoghurt and sprinkling onto my salads. Delicious!
I thought there could be more grocery items so perhaps there is still some room for expansion. Its a fun place to meet for a coffe or a beer on a Saturday, grab a bite of lunch or brunch and pick up a few supplies.
The market is open every Saturday between 9am – 2pm.
