Hazel Food Market Vision
It has now been over a year since they started the hazel Food Market with the vision to create an authentic food market in the heart of Pretoria's Old East. A place where residents can come and buy fresh produce as well as ready to eat foods which they can enjoy at the market in the communial area to take home to enjoy later. So far they have grown from strength to strength.
They are looking for people who grow, produce, make or bake the products themselves to come and sell it at the Haxzle Food market. Products must be local and of good quality. Pricing must be fair. The idea of the market is to create a polace where you can sell your goods and people can buy food at lower than retail prices as they are buying straight from the producer. It is imperative for the producer to be present at the market and be the one selling the goods as this enhances the atmosphere of the authentic food market.
