Well okay, to me it felt like it. If heaven existed this is what mine would be like.
Boss man is forever heading off to the market and getting fruit and veg at better prices, I mentioned that I want to go one day but have no idea where it is so when he went through to go get stuff at lunch time I tagged along.
I thought our fruit and veg was paradise… this place. Oh my word. I was almost run over by a fork lift as I stood their gaping like an idiot. Think of a kid in a candy store’s happiness and times it by the excitement of a kid on xmas day… now duplicate that!
There’s a market outside all along gunners circle with people selling goods that they bought from the warehouse so if you don’t particularly want a giant box of naartjies or 12 mangoes at a time then I’d suggest browsing along there, obviously they mark up the prices a bit to make a little profit. But at Golden Harvest you can get your goods in bulk which is great if you’re going to share it with family or friends. Or of course if you’re a vegan and your diet is based on mostly fruits and vegetables like mine.
The haul ended up being (all in boxes, punnets or bags, see photo) – Mangoes, nectarines, naartjies, cling peaches (under the nectarines) melons, carrots, and sweet potato. And all that came to R600 which might sound like a lot but take into consideration what this haul would cost you at your local store… yeah, exactly!
I’ve decided that next month I am going to take a Friday off work and keep Fysh out of school. We’re going to go to the market (but the outside one) and wander through it, I think he’d love it and he loves getting to pick out his own fruits and vegetables. Yes you’re allowed to be jealous…. my kid eats fruits and veg. Without being forced or bribed *sniggers*
