World class farmers market : home-grown on 20 years of passion

Ricky Schalkwyk published on

Christine Standeaven shares her story of the establishment and growth of the Shongweni Farmers & Craft Market situated near to Durban in Kwa-Zulu Natal..

Now 20 years old, the market was established by the Standeaven family when they found themselves with a excess of mushrooms that needed to be sold. After all these years, it is evident that the hands-on approach of this family in the running of this world-class market, has proven to be the perfect formula for success.

The energy, love, commitment and passion that Christine and her family have invested in the market has delivered a host of benefits to the community. From the countless small traders who have had the opportunity of creating a livelihood for their families, to the community at large who are secure in the knowledge that the Shongweni Farmers & Craft Market will not disappoint. This market is a firm family favourite for food, fun and festivities. Not to be missed!
