The Ultimate Farmers Market at Casterbridge
Once a month, those living in and around White River, along with those visiting, can indulge all of their shopping desires by spending the morning at Casterbridge.
The Casterbridge Shopping Centre is a stone’s throw away from Greenway Woods and our comfortable White River accommodation. Guests at our lodge can easily spend their Saturday morning picking up locally made foods and crafts before heading back to Greenway for an afternoon of relaxation, a round of golf and a dip in the pool.
The Famers Market is a great excuse to get outdoors, explore the local produce and gimmicks and enjoy some downtime on the weekend. The market takes place on the first Saturday of every month and each month new stall owners bring their products to sell. While you will occasionally come across the same things, there are those stalls that really stand out.
The entire concept of the market is to create a complete community experience and over the years, the market has certainly achieved this and so much more. Not only is the market well supported by the locals, but it also enjoys plenty of support for those staying at various White River accommodation. Visiting tourists can leave the Lowveld having bought a souvenir while in the Kruger National Park, while also filling up on gifts for their family from the market place. And we haven’t even started on the delicious treats awaiting you!
Stand Out Attractions
When at this market, your senses are going to be wildly indulged by all of the sights, sounds and smells. But don’t let the distractions stop you from exploring and stocking up on all of your new favourite things!
A local beauty brand featured on blogs and in magazines, Crafted Cosmetics uses local plants and sustainably produced ingredients to create their catalogue of creams, oils, balms, sugar scrubs and so much more. Over the years they have grown a legion of fans and their products truly speak for themselves. They are affordably priced and unlike anything, you’ll ever find in the shops!
Crafted Cosmetics is not the only skin care company featured at the market. You can also buy gentle, eco-friendly, Wild Harvest products. These are produced in small batches and they are made with all natural ingredients. The harvested ingredients are locally grown and this helps to provide an income to local, rural women.
The Lowveld is spoiled with local gin and beer producers. Dollie Gin is one of those companies serving up the most refreshing drinks at the market, and their special gin is available for sale. The Sabie Brewing Company is a craft beer producer who regularly attends the market to sell some of their finest drinks.
Talk about homegrown indulgence! Toxic Fudge is the Lowveld’s favourite fudge company and they are truly creative masters. Their sweet treats are 100% handcrafted and their recipe is unique to their company. Zannas is a nearby eatery often serving up delicious baked treats and other goods. You can also be sure to find numerous fresh produce stalls, jams and preservatives.
