I dashed off to the the first Fat Olive Market this morning to support my friends Laura and Nicci who have undertaken this new project.  It’s an organic and craft market that’s going to be held monthly at the Fat Olive restaurant close to Lanseria airport.  Granted, I didn’t stay all that long and didn’t try the food at the restaurant because the family was wanting to go the movies to celebrate Bradley’s birthday.

But I did shop 😉 I couldn’t help myself… there were such stunning things on offer.  It’s still small as markets go, but there’s seriously quality stuff on offer.

I bought this awesome brownie jar from Laura’s Journey2Joy stall.  She had these things on offer too…

And then I stopped at this stall selling chain mail jewellery but decided against buying cos my skin is sensitive and doesn’t agree with a lot of jewellery

Oh and then I was seriously tempted by this little table.  I just couldn’t think where I’d use it!!  This couple have just started a furniture restoring business in Pretoria called Before and After… such awesome little sidetables!!

and I bought some lip balm from this stall selling Balm Balm (it’s 100% organic and comes from the UK)

Oh and the bread!! Wow!! I bought a pumpernickel bread from this stall selling from Nonno’s Village Baker – it was just outstanding!  We had it for lunch after the movies!

Ooh and I finally got to meet Sharon IRL!!!

If you’re keen, the next one is on 26 May 2012 from 9-1pm.  Just follow them on Facebook or Twitter to keep up to date with dates etc
