There is a secret forest hidden in the plots of Walkerville, South of Johannesburg. We discovered this enchanting gem quite by chance one day as we performed for a wedding in this forest. A few times a year In The Forest opens up a folk market. There are blacksmiths, handmade jewellery merchants, home baked food goodies. Not to mention the craft beer, coffee and food trucks, and loads of activities for the kids. Archery and tree climbing caught our eyes,but there is so much at this venue, one is only limited by your imagination.
The Easter Folk market fell on the Saturday of the Easter weekend, complete with an Easter-egg hunt for the kiddies. Cherry Pill performed with fellow singer-songwriters Shayna and Simone Govender at the food court area. You can bring along a picnic blanket, sit back on the lawns and relax to some beautiful local tunes.
It is a lovely day-trip out to the country if you can make the next market or folk music festival that they have on in May.
