Fourways Farmers Market is one of the weekend markets which offers a great place for a couple or family or friends to go and chill out for the whole day or at least for breakfast or brunch or lunch as per their availability. The market serves the best of many kinds of food items from coffee to mocktails to muffins to hot dogs to Craft Beer.
The entry ticket is just R20 but payable in cash per person and you are welcome to bring your pets like dogs etc too. Inside, your credit or debit card can work to buy from water bottles to any kind of dessert or food from several food trucks.
I always wanted to go there and one day Canon had a kind of learning session there and I attended the same and afterward took a round of the market. The market is right opposite Montecasino Bird Gardens which I have featured in many posts and is in the center of Johannesburg.
All the photos are clicked by Aashish Rai using Canon 100D and a nifty-fifty Prime lens (50mm). The market is totally colorful and it was so hot that day that mini-sprinklers are used to keep the place a little bit cold. The parking is totally full within an hour or so so you have to park at Montecasino and walk for around 10 minutes to reach the place.
The farmers market has shops serving cold drinks to cocktails to watermelons to donuts to several kinds of jams and marmalades etc. The shops even offer several kinds of bags and local African jewelry to buy.
There were plenty of food shops which I have never seen in any other marketplace or they don't have any shops and if you become a fan of their products, you will have to wait till the end of weekdays to come to this market, stand in the queue to enter the market flashing an R20 currency note and then find your favorite food truck to order and enjoy the delicious food.
Not only this place offers great food but also a great venue to go and click some of the street photographs and candid shots of the crowd enjoying themselves of course with their permission.
