HILLCREST Country Market is under new ownership but will continue as a well-established market. The next market day is on Sunday, 2 August.

The market is held at Hillcrest Primary School hall from 9am to 1pm and showcases a variety of locally made arts, crafts, jewellery, clothing and delicious local and homemade delicatessen items, food and beverages.

A shopping venue, it has become a firm favourite with both Hillcrest residents and visitors alike.

The market brings the country atmosphere back to Hillcrest and stocks a wide range of foods, arts and crafts. Live music keeps visitors entertained as they stroll along the cobbled street lined with tables offering shoppers any excuse to purchase something. The food side of the market offers breads, homemade pies and savoury tarts. To go with the breads are goat’s milk cheeses, sundried tomatoes, olives and meats.

Fresh fruit and vegetables are also available so remember to bring a carrier bags with you. For those who love something sweet with their afternoon cuppa, make sure to buy a cupcake or a packet of homemade biscuits.

A market would not be a market without crafts and the Hillcrest market does not disappoint in this regard.

Baskets, rugs, paintings and furniture are all for sale as are books, wine racks and for inclement weather days, trendy gumboots, and one can also start early Christmas shopping

Entertainment for little people has not been forgotten and there is a wide variety to choose from including painting and crafts, face painting, pony rides and an interactive animal farmyard.

Parking and facilities are not a problem with many parking bays, clean ablutions, a tourist information centre and security.

The Hillcrest Country Market does not deserve to be missed so pencil it in for the last Sunday of the month – you won’t regret it
