“Foodie Heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

Been here often on a Saturday morning. You end up walking away with bags full of fresh and interesting food. From cheeses, veggies, breads, spices, cakes, nuts, oils, juices to Korean, Indian & Moroccan dishes. Go early, take bags, find a spot under the trees and enjoy a delicious Cappucino with fresh Portuguese custard pies. A lovely way to start a Saturday.

“Fresh and vibey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

The Hazel Food Market is a great place to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday, wandering from stall to stall, trying to decide what to eat and watching other market goers. Plenty of stalls selling a wide variety of foods including freshly produced items as well as pickles, preserves, cured meats etc. Lots of space to sit under the trees. It gets busy so arrive early or be prepared to park on the streets and walk a minute or two.

“yummie!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

It is now becoming a Saturady ritual for our family. Everything is fresh, we all pick something to eat. Fresh friut, ice cream, breakfast, cold meats and the most divine bread. It is not good for my diet, but once a week you can sacrifice a bit. It is a must when you are in Pretoria. Just come and experience it for yourself!!

“A great Saturday Morning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

Excellent food of all varieties, including fresh meats, breads, cheeses and produce. Various ethnic foods as well, including authentic Indian, Malaysian, Moroccan cuisine. The chicken sandwich with hot Mozambican peri peri on a Portugese roll is my go-to. There is a "bouncy castle" moonbounce for kids, as well as picnic tables under the trees that provide some shade.

This market occurs almost every Saturday year-round, and has some craft offerings too. While Pretoria is generally a sleepy place, the Hazel Food Market is a great way to start your weekend with a mid-day meal before heading out for some nearby adventure.
