Fresh garden produce, home-baked products, fabulous floral arrangements, creative crafts and fabrics, homebrew beers and wines, cheeses, chutneys, sauces; scrumptious desserts and delectable fast food stalls. On top of this, there are ample open spaces and playgrounds to keep the small fry safely entertained. All of this just a comfortable one-hour train trip up the line from Durban.
