“The best reason yet not to eat at home.”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

This little food market is where you will find my husband and me every Saturday morning (open 8:00-14:00). Besides offering a wide selection of heavenly food, it also has a lovely atmosphere and a jungle gym for the kids to play. Get there early to grab a table underneath the trees (and to avoid the rush). You can then choose anything from "roosterkoek" to my personal favourite prawn and avo salad and to wash it all down, a freshly squeezed fruit juice . October is the absolute best time to visit this market, as all the Jacaranda trees in Pretoria are covered with bright purple flowers - simply beautiful. See you there on Saturday!!

“A foodie gem in Pretoria”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The Hazel Food Market has an amazing array of food stalls, from Moroccan to Serbian to Indian and many more. There are also many stalls selling cheeses, olives, local fruits and vegetables, and freshly roasted coffee. I've been four times and am still discovering tasty new food options!

“Foodie Heaven”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Been here often on a Saturday morning. You end up walking away with bags full of fresh and interesting food. From cheeses, veggies, breads, spices, cakes, nuts, oils, juices to Korean, Indian & Moroccan dishes. Go early, take bags, find a spot under the trees and enjoy a delicious Cappucino with fresh Portuguese custard pies. A lovely way to start a Saturday.
