As part of my Johannesburg market project,I recently visited the Bryanston Organic Market that is a great mix of colourful craft, food and fresh vegetables.
These wall hangings are made of coloured wire and look stunning.A great gift for an international visitor rather than the ubiquitous carved wooden giraffe!
They might look very simple but these wooden crates are very useful.They are sold by Hotel Hope Ministries.(www.hotelhopeministries.org)
The majority of stall holders were very accommodating about having their pictures taken,and thank you for that.This fellow sells stunning hand-made jewelry.
I have no idea why these ballet shoes were hanging at a food stall...I shall return to find out what significance they have
These glass picture frames are held together with stainless steel bolts, giving them a minimalist and contemporary look
the tea garden always buzzes on market day.The bandstand has been enlarged and moved to give visitors a better view of the performers.
This young lady was selling an interesting mix of eclectic products that included rain sticks.
I was glad to find a stall selling handmade wooden fountain pens...good to know that they are still in use.
So next time you are scratching your head for a gift with a difference, pay the market a visit.
