Members of Aberdeen’s APK held a successful street market last Saturday in the town square.
Just after 7am on a hot Karoo day, those working at the sale started setting up tables and lighting braai fires. Despite having to compete with another mini bazaar and several informal vendors, the team’s lamb wors and sosaties sold quickly. Curry and rice was as popular as ever, and the traditional ‘bazaar puddings’ were quickly snapped up by those craving something sweet.
There was another church’s outreach group singing very close to the APK gazebo, which sometimes made it a little difficult for the church volunteers to hear the customers’ orders, but in true Aberdeen spirit, everyone just smiled and got on with what they were doing!
The men cooking the meat certainly felt the heat, but valiantly continued until the last piece of wors was cooked. Packs of raw meat and sosaties were also sold, that had been donated by members of the church and a local farmer.
By 1:30pm everything was sold out except for a few packets of raw meat – this mutton is available from Vroutjie se Koutjie.
The organisers are very grateful to all who braved the heat
to support the event.
