Fresh fruit and vegetables from local organic farmers
Bryanston Market directly sells fruit and vegetables sourced from small local organic farmers based in and around Joburg. There's a choice of fresh veggie boxes that you can order, starting from 'small boxes' filled with a selection of six seasonal vegetables (R150) to a large box packed with 12 different vegetables (R300). There's also the Local is Lekker box which includes lots of veggies that are typically used in traditional dishes such as mielies, pumpkin leaves, sweet sorghum, sweet potatoes, jugo beans and calabash.
Organic meat and dairyOne of Joburg's most celebrated butcheries, Braeside Butchery is known for its dedication to free range and ethical farming. If you've found that recently you've made the trip out to the supermarket only to find the meat section empty then you'll be delighted to see that Braeside has an exceptional menu of meat that you can order in advance via the market including steaks, kebabs, mince, lamb, bacon, sausages and even whole chickens for the Sunday roast. On the dairy side there's fresh milk from Happy Milk and free range eggs from Keto Kitchen as well as Dutch cheeses from Gonedsa.
Delicious and healthy ready mealsThere's a delicious choice of ready meals on offer, freshly prepared by Bryanston Market's traders. Enjoy free range lasagne, cottage pie and pizzas to bake at home from Le Cuisine du Jardin, the most comforting soups from Christa's Corner or a banting quiche from the Keto Kitchen.
Vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free treatsBare Nature Nutrition specialses in healthy snacks that taste great and will fool any sugar-addicted child, including a selection of homemade preseravative-free and dairy-free ‘raw treats’ that make a great substitute for chocolate bars such as the beetroot bar and the chocolate brownie bar.
