Overview

A community run farmer's and craft market, this is one of the best shopping experiences in Zululand. It is open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Local women have established a large produce and craft market, getting their merchandise from established vegetable gardens and African craftsemn and selling in order to support their families and send their children to school.
