IIf you’re cruising the streets of Johannesburg on a Saturday morning and notice a little rumble in your stomach, then visit the Jozi Food Market for a medley of delectable products, all handmade with care in the local community. Expect to find everything from raw honey and flavourful, homemade sausages to preserves and decadent sweet treats. And that’s not to mention the home-brewed cordials and juices, and heavenly fresh-from-the-oven breads. 

The Jozi Food Market is accessibly located on the grounds of a Johannesburg sports club, minutes from the well-known row of restaurants in the trendy northern suburb of Greenside. It’s an intimate market that you can work your way through in half an hour, if pushed; alternatively, take a morning to really taste and discover all the products with perhaps only one notch of the belt changed.

Did You Know?
TThe trendy village of nearby Parkhurst has many choice restaurants and cafés in one street – 4th Avenue.

TThe Jozi Food Market boasts quite a few standout stalls. Look for the honey table with its eco-friendly raw (unpasteurised) honey provided by a registered beekeeper. The homemade bacon table sells arguably the best pork pies in Johannesburg, and there is a jam stall with lemon curd that is beyond grandma’s best.

AAlso look for the table with refreshing cordials – organic and home-brewed – and ask to taste till you find your perfect blend. Then there is the bread stand with loaves bursting with seeds, grains and crusts that pack some serious crunch. Food markets in South Africa have become more than just shopping venues. Families, couples and foodies support them because they offer entertainment, good food and quality products in one spot.

 At the Jozi Food Market, take the time to enjoy a breakfast of fresh coffee matched with a croissant, pain au chocolat or a Belgian waffle. After your extensive explorations, you’ll be needing lunch, so find the gourmet sandwich stand, the outfit that sells country pasties, or the chap with the pork pies.

There are a few fresh produce, books and crafts stalls, but this market is mainly about food, glorious food. It’s the ideal market to fill up your tummy for the day and your baskets for the weekend.

The Drakensberg, south, central and north, is traversed by hiking trails that take in the natural beauty of the mountains and their endemic wildlife. From forest meanders to chain ladders anchored to steep buttresses, there are hikes that will appeal to beginner and expert, along with everyone in between. The Drakensberg Mountains – Ukhahlamba or 'barrier of spears' in isiZulu – extends for more than 200km across South Africa, creating a veritable wonderland of day hikes. Go ahead and put the exquisite Drakensberg on your must do SA list.

It's the weekend, is your squad ready? Don’t just go on a safari and see the Big 5 get the whole experience and camp out at Kruger National Park. Maybe you’ve already stayed at one of the Kruger National Park’s many camps, but have you considered sleeping out in one of their overnight hides? The two hides – Sabie, near Phalaborwa Gate, and Shipandani, near Mopani Camp – are very basic but you’ll have a thrilling African bush experience. The Kruger National Park has accommodation suitable for all budgets, from camping to extreme luxury, but now there’s the wonderful opportunity to camp out in one of the park's overnight hides. Thank you @jessicampesino for the awesome snap. #MeetSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica #thisissouthafrica #exploresouthafrica #Travelgram #wanderlust #travelsouthafrica #safari #KrugerNationalPark #Big5 #CampingSafari

Champagne Sports Resort in the Central Drakensberg is the perfect venue for both business and leisure tourists. The resort is home to an 18-hole championship golf course, roaming herds of blesbok and impala and 5 dams stocked with trout and bass. It offers a variety of sports and cultural activities. This resort set in the tranquil surrounds of the Central Drakensberg, with magnificent views of Champagne Castle and Cathkin Peak, combines high-tech conferencing, luxury accommodation and first-rate leisure activities. BEST TIME TO VISIT The Drakensberg is a year-round destination - although it can be cool in winter, especially when there is snow on the mountains. Great snap from @suthcrank. #MeetSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica #thisissouthafrica #exploresouthafrica #Travelgram #wanderlust #travelsouthafrica #Drakensberg #adventure

The Victoria Street Market in Durban is unique in South Africa. Barrels of Indian spices and incense infuse the air of this flea market and a visit is essential for those who want to experience Durban's relaxed Afro-Oriental atmosphere and pick up some great bargains. The market is a melting pot of vibrancy and you’ll definitely walk out with a souvenir or two.
