To Market, To Market

There's nothing like a local market to give you an insight into a community, so visit the Thames Market, Pollen Street North, Grahamstown (tel. 07/868-7213), which is open 8am to noon every Saturday. It's a mixed bag -- everything from local produce to crafts and collectibles -- but it has lots of local characters and a "down-home" charm that might appeal.
