THE Hillcrest Country Market will be holding this month’ market on 10 April at Hillcrest Primary School from 9am to 1pm to which the community is invited.

The market officially was opened in November 2013 by brother and sister team Frank and Tracy Lyle. In June 2015 Clint and Ruth dos Santos took over ownership and they strive to keep the market operating at the same high quality standard as under the previous ownership.

Speaking to the Fever Clint and Ruth said the market aims to bring 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 delicious breads, homemade pies and more-ish savoury tarts,” said the duo.

To go with the breads are goat’s milk cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes, olives and various meats, and fruit and vegetables are in abundance, so don’t forget to bring carrier bags.

“For those who love something sweet, make sure to buy a cupcake or a packet of home-made 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,” they added.
