We were on a roll, so when we finished up with the Sedgefield markets, we decided to pop in at Timberlake Village to see what was happening there. Unfortunately, all of this market-hopping meant there was no time left in the day to hop on the bike...
They may be slow in Sedgefield, but they are no slouches.... their Wild Oats Community Farmers' Market and Scarab Village Market have been going for years and are always popular - but in the last year they've stepped things up a notch since the Outeniqua Farmers' Market in George got going - and they've added a new section between the two markets with even more foodstalls and crafts.
Lauren's Deli Eatery in George (see Tripadvisor reviews) comes well-recommended and have a stall there. We had a couple of the the rather non-traditional prawn falafels which were pretty tasty (with a wasabi-mayo dressing, lettuce and pickled ginger) before doing the rounds in the markets and the nursery. Check them out the next time you're looking for a bit of an outing on the other side of Wilderness. See the Farm Stalls & Craft Markets section of this website for opening times and more info.
Had a great tandem paragliding ride with Jan Minnaar of Cloudbase at the Sedgeview launching/landing site above Sedgefield today - something I have been meaning to do for a long time - great fun and perfect timing before the colder winter air sets in!
I tracked our flight with my GPS and saved it as a "work out" (hardly!) on Sports-Tracker together with some photos.
Here's one of the videos Jan took of us "chillaxing" while we rode a mild thermal to about 300 meters:
