Growing strong

Zweli Noto strummed and drummed his way through Saturday morning, November 12, at the Muizenberg Farmers Market.

The Muizenberg community is growing from strength to strength. The farmer’s market, held on Saturday November 12 in Palmer Road, offered home-grown produce, hand-made herbal products, such as tinctures and balms, samplings of food from Ethiopia, baskets, music and a swop shop session. The swop shop gives you a chance to clear your wardrobe and get funky new clothes in return: bring clean clothes with no holes in them for a swop session. The markets are open to all Muizenberg residents and are held to build a cohesive community as well as to offer an opportunity for some income. Reporter KAREN KOTZE captured the event.
