About
This market oozes with stereotypical country charm. It's almost mandatory to pack up the family and dog, take a sturdy basket and arrive early. Treat yourself with breakfast and, from your vantage point on a hay bale, decide your method of attack. Peruse stalls at a leisurely place as hands-on producers passionately talk you through their wares from traditional English sausages to decadent baked goods, handcrafted organic cheeses, breads and rustic French staples like terrines and rillettes. You'll also find Middle Eastern and Mediterranean specialities from baklava to falafel. If you're shopping with a conscience you can buy organic veg or a pre-installed, irrigated system to grow your own organic vegetables.

This Market is by far the best of its kind anywhere in KZN! Food choices are diverse and delicious, stalls are all incredibly well presented and there is everything from Pet Treats to Organic Meat & Veg to Clothing , Art and Books.
Live music and a brilliant Craft G&at and beer bar make it an absolutely perfect place to spend a long, slow Saturday morning.

It was our first time to visit the Shongweni Farmers Market. It was an extremely hot day and despite the weather we had nice cool drinks and great food. The stalls are of very good quality and we enjoyed our morning.

I visit this market as often as I can! Took my friends there last week. They were totally blown away by what the market offers! From food to clothing... For pets too! Music and beer and home made ciders! Just amazing! It's situated half way from Pietermaritzburg and Durban.
A perfect getaway!

Early morning visits are best to avoid crowds.Fresh chilly morning with beautiful views.Coffee and the smell of delicious food fills the air.So many choices allow one to eat different food from various cultures.The crafts are creative interesting and vary in price.The walking around is pleasant and festive.A gathering of this type serves to bring people together in a wonderful environment and is suitable for all ages.Not to be missed !
