Food & Home - - Foodbites -


Af­ter driv­ing 130 kilo­me­tres from Giyani, Themba Chauke was thrilled to dis­cover that Mina’s Art Café & Farm Venue is not only a worth­while pit stop, but also the lo­cale of Mina’s Neigh­bour­hood Mar­ket, where he got a taste of rus­tic Lim­popo hos­pi­tal­ity at its best.


Cre­ated by Denise and Rob Too­ley, this mar­ket aims to bring peo­ple to­gether to en­joy high stan­dards of food cul­ture. As such, each stall has its own unique food of­fer­ings and sig­na­ture dishes.

Sit­u­ated in the moun­tain­ous land­scape of the Ma­goe­baskloof area, Mina’s Art Café & Farm Venue is en­cir­cled by lush forests that make for an awe-in­spir­ing back­drop. The var­i­ous sur­round­ing farms – which pro­vide most of the food prod­ucts sold at the mar­ket – and the crisp fresh air are other as­pects vis­i­tors love about the mar­ket.

The ideal out­ing for the whole fam­ily, you can bring your furry friends along as the mar­ket has a large play area for them. Wa­ter is also pro­vided for all four-legged vis­i­tors.

IN­DULGE IN… Through word of mouth, fly­ers, In­sta­gram and Face­book, the mar­ket at­tracts food lovers from around Lim­popo. And it’s no won­der! With some­thing for ev­ery­one – from proudly Lim­popo-pro­duced craft beer by Zwakala Brew­ery, gin and tonic on tap, es­tate wines, cock­tails, ta­pas, gourmet burg­ers, sushi, coun­try pizza, ar­ti­sanal ice cream, bliss bowls and so much more – you’re bound to leave with a bas­ket filled with de­li­cious good­ies.


A great way to spend your day, live mu­sic will en­ter­tain the grown-ups while a kid­dies’ play area will keep the lit­tle ones busy.

TAKE ME HOME Those who fre­quent the mar­ket will tell you to stop by Hloki's Curry on your way home. Their cur­ries-which come in beef, goat and chicken op­tions – will tan­ta­lise your taste buds! An­other stall to visit is We­graak­bosch Dairy by el­derly cou­ple Nip­per and Sylvia Thomp­son. Their range of or­ganic cheeses is hand-made in the tra­di­tional Swiss way and con­tains live cul­tures – a truly spe­cial mar­ket find!
