Fruit sellers along the road: No excuse for scurvy!
(work in progress)
The area just north of the Magaliesberg range is renowned for its fruit cultivation, so it's little surprise that the roads around Hartbeespoort Dam are lined with fruit sellers.
This photo was taken in July, when citrus fruits, avocadoes and macadamia nuts were in season. The boxes of naartjies (a local variation on a satsuma theme, and pronounced 'narchees') were R25 (about USD3) each, so at that sort of giveaway price, you have no excuse whatsoever for developing a vitamin C deficiency during your time here!
Snake Junction: Not much of a shopping centre but nice
There is local arts and crafts shops but I think its mostly comprises of Restaurants.
What to buy: Well if you into the local arts and crafts things then this is one of many place in the Hartbeespoort Area where you can buy this.
What to pay: Well you can Negociate price here

The Craft Market: Cheap artcraft
I found in Hartbeespoort the best place to buy artcraft. They have everything you want at a very reasonable price. From wooden statues, to fabric paintings, the market is quite complete.
Most of the prices are cheaper than in other places, so if you want to buy craft, this is the place. I did, but I thing I got carried away... I had to put all the stuff in a huge plastic bag, that I had to bring home as luggage. But I don't regret it.
Oh, and one more thing: BARGAIN!!!
What to buy: Fabric paintings, wooden statues, stone figures.
Street Vendors: Local Arts and Crafts
Well this is no shop as you can buy these Arts and crafts from the local people selling them at the robots at the Dam Wall and along the road.
What to buy: Local Arts and Crafts
What to pay: Definitely Negotiate Prrice.
