You can get a lot at food markets these days, but sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day to make it to one on time, and if you want something very specific, you might need to visit more than one market to find it, which can become a bit of an expedition.

That’s why we were excited to discover Feast Food Market, a new online marketplace which connects busy market-fans with the local food producers we love so much.  It’s the best of both worlds, giving you the convenience of online shopping (with home delivery) without compromising on the variety and quality you would expect from your favourite market.

“Feast Food Market brings the choice of local food markets online, letting you enjoy your favourite speciality and artisanal products with the click of a button. We’re connecting discerning foodies with the best independent food producers in and around South Africa through online shopping and home delivery.”

The website lists a variety of products in categories ranging from ‘special diets’ to ‘pantry and snacks’ and has a well-thought-out assortment of gift hampers, helpfully compiled according to theme (eg ‘Braai Hamper’, ‘Coffee Companion’).  Producers are carefully curated, and each one has an online profile, where you can find out more about where and how your food is created.

The photographs are mouth-watering!  And whilst the selection is currently not that wide, it all looks top-notch, quality-wise, and we think it won’t be long before new producers join and add to the variety.
