Frozen Margaritas, rocket laden pizzas, chubby olives, upcycled bicycles, fresh flowers, delis, delicatessens, paella, pesto, handcrafted chocolate, craft beer, organic coffee and that’s just halfway through the first floor. I finally got to go to the new Neighbourgoods market in Braamfontein and it made every one of my senses whistle happy. I felt exactly like I did after going on the Slip ‘n Slide in my cousin’s garden – I want to do it again. See you next Saturday.

Nadia van der Mescht tells us a bit more about Cupcake Couture:
“Cupcake Couture is a small accessories brand that I started in order to create and craft. It has grown to so much more and is now my full time focus, coupled with the digital management side of the business and the creative consulting that I do. Each product is handmade and created with lots of love. I imagine the person who might use it or wear it and enjoy adding each precious button and detail. I hunt for special things…buttons, old haberdashery items, ribbons and beautiful vintage pieces to embellish each brooch or accessory.
You can find my products via my online shop…place your order and expect a pretty package. You can visit me at I heart Market in Durban which is on the first Saturday of each month. Here you will find my pop up shop and Build-a-Brooch stall which allows you to design your own brooch.”
