A morning at the iHeart Market in Durban

I have never posted a “lifestyle blog” before but have decided to create a category for this purpose as it is so awesome to share the wonderful happenings in and around Durban as I experience them for myself. My Blog is predominantly food but where there’s food involved such as markets and obviously restaurant’s I feel I can include them as they are of interest to me and hopefully you’ll enjoy them too. We live in such a wonderful diverse City which is truly growing and being “put on the map” so to say in line with other more cosmopolitan Cities such as Cape Town and Johannesburg. We have a fantastic array of markets in Durban itself as well as in the countryside areas such as Hillcrest and the Midlands Meander. This past Saturday I spent a lovely day with friends starting off at the very popular iHeart Market with Nicola Meyer (@NicolaLMeyer) which is situated at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. It was a scorcher of a day but we managed to stay in the shaded areas as much as possible. The Market has a wide selection of “tables” ranging from clothing, soaps, jewelry, food, cakes, home dรฉcor and “white elephant” tables which is my favourite. I love rummaging through other peoples “throw away stuff” – Not junk but good stuff. The only downfall of the morning for me was that I had no cash so my advise to you is to have your purse full! Although there are ATM’s at the Stadium, most of the stalls don’t have debit card machines. I had a great morning with Nicola and have uploaded some photo’s for you to enjoy.

By this time, Nicola and I were starving so at about 10:30am we made our way to Umhlanga to meet up with a few of our other blogger friends. We met at a stunning little restaurant/Bistro called Vovotelo. I’ll tell you more about that in my next blog post.
