The Shongweni Farmers Market story is one of humble beginnings.
In 1998, we had only 12 stalls selling food and fresh produce on a field belonging to the Shongweni Polo Club.
Little did we know that our small offering was set to sprout into something special.
After attracting stall holders and customers from far and wide, we’re now proud to host over 150 stalls.
More than half of which, offer delectable food and outstanding fresh produce.
It is both our goal and passion to help people realise the importance of buying local.
Whether it’s everyday items like bread, milk, cheese, vegetables, and meat, or the more luxurious ones like homemade cakes and pies, we owe it to ourselves to know where our food is made, grown, reared or produced.
Whilst some argue that markets like ours break the bank, they’re actually less expensive because they cut out the middleman!
It’s also a more environmentally friendly way to shop, making it pleasuring to the earth and your pocket.
Founded by a family of avid dog lovers, Our market is probably the only one where dogs are welcome.
Just be sure to have your plastic bag and leash at the ready, if you wish to bring along man’s best friend.
You can visit our Gallery to view our album of furry friends who can’t wait to visit the Market each week.
You’ll find that the Market is 100% wheel chair accessible.
This provides the ultimate convenience for those wishing to visit us.
Our child-friendly, soft play area for kids under 4 is free of charge.
We’re often home to a few special events, particularly on public holidays.
Whilst some of them might entail a cover charge or a donation to a charity, we promise it’s all worth the cost and often for a good cause.
