Successful market at Friends Café in Mbombela

The sun was shining and the market-goers flooded to the ever-popular Market at Friends Café on May 26. Some families even brought along their furry friends.

The Market at Friends Café on Sunday May 26 saw an array of local and handmade products and treats on offer for those who paid a visit.

From intricately made sculptures, art, jewellery, clothing and leather shoes to delicious snacks, both savoury and sweet, there was something for everyone.

The organiser, Peta de Wet, said it was a beautiful day and a busy morning for those selling their wares at the market.

She said a trick bike, a bicycle that turns left when you try to turn right and vice versa, available for the visitors to try, was hugely successful and that many people young and old tried their hand at it.

“I love that people arrive with their pooches and their family at the market. It is very much a family-orientated market,” she said.
