Cape Town Food Market – Earth Fair Tokai
Yes we love Cape Town Food Market – Earth Fair Tokai
Every Saturday we’re at the Cape Town Food Market. Why? As I have said we love it. We buy fresh food from the producers.
We always buy cheese from the Cheese Man.
We buy any of these cheese, get a bottle of wine, fresh home-baked bread and start our feast. But we also take some of the cheese home. His soft cheeses end up in our fresh salads. Lovely. Rich and wholesome.
But obviously this Cape Town Food Market – Earth Fair Tokai has more to offer. Like my mischievous friend Wessel. This man farm with many things. And goats are included. He sells the freshest goat milk you can find. He sells goat’s yogurt and goat’s feta and more.
One of his Goat’s feta has Stinging Nettle in it. Go and read up on Stinging Nettle; no more seasonal allergies. My wife doesn’t like Goats anything. But this feta she enjoys with us. Here’s Wessel with his fresh Goats’ milk produce.
What’s next at this Cape Town Food Market – Earth Fair Tokai?
The flower man. At the entrance to this market is this friendly chap selling colourful flowers. And my wife, Elmarie, can never walk past without giving in to another bunch.
Later on I share with you the bunch Elmarie bought. There was only one and many women came up to us asking were we bought it.
How do you like these Portuguese custard tarts called Pasteis de natas? I just love these tarts. Elmarie will tell you that I eat custard over my morning cereal. That was then.
What else did we buy at the Cape Town Food Market – Earth Fair Tokai?
We bought biltong. Always. And we bought organic lamb from a farmer in Pofadder. This time we bought four lamb shanks and made cooked these over a slow heat until soft. What a meal.
And a visit to the market is never complete with out a visit to the green grocer. And this market has two. These lovely radishes comes from my friend Michelle. We also got some Kale from the other veggie woman. Now I don’t know Kale but a lovely green. I can use it in a salad, stir fry or in a soup. Love the taste of it.
Now here’s what our takings were for the day?
