I’ve been on an eat clean and “change my relationship with food” journey this year so visiting the weekly Green Market was on the list of things I’ve needed to do. September is a little too late for a first time visit, but I can explain.

I actually didn’t know how often the Green Market took place. Every time I saw someone post about it on Instagram I would be like, damn, how do people know when this event takes place?

But alas, this is a weekly market. SO every Saturday The Green Market puts together a layout of incredible stalls ranging from vegetables, fruit, sauces, honey, art, candles, meat… you name it.

The choices were endless.

I obviously went for the greens so that’s what I got. There’s so much I wasn’t able to fit into the two bags I carried, but knowing this takes place every weekend means I can always go back for it. Yay me. I have my eyes on organic honey and hummus.

Here’s a list of what I got. I spent N$ 419.

  1. Farm Sesame Bread
  2. Celery
  3. Lettuce
  4. Spinach
  5. Naartjies
  6. Apples
  7. Lemons
  8. Pineapple
  9. Blueberries
  10. Peanuts
  11. Basil Pesto
  12. Garlic Butter Spread
  13. Smoked Viennas
  14. Droewors (Amazing might I add)
  15. Green Beans
  16. Herbal Tea

They also have a sitting area (they serve coffee too I think) but there’s a coffee shop across the road so you could do that after.

I enjoyed myself and got everything I need for my next week of eating clean, so I’d highly recommend. I even prepared myself a plate when I got home; slices of the farm bread, the garlic butter and pesto and one smoked vienna, when I say that’s the best meal I had all week? I mean it.

The best part is that visiting the Green Market means supporting Namibian businesses.
So when you are not purchasing your greens from the memes on the street, give the Green Market a try.
