I had to pick up a colleague from the train station early this morning and saw peoplke flocking around street vendors buying items such as vetkoek (fatcakes), russians, and polony. I took a few images of the food. According to one of the vendors, they sell the food to the people that work in the industrial areas and they sell like hot cakes. The demand is high. Come to think of it, I used to buy these items when I started working. I took a train from Cape Town to N’dabeni and there was a lady there selling vetkoek. They are still warm at the time of sale.

We decided to buy a few items. Besides, the vendors do not dare let you take pictures if you are not buying. The guys that work in the industrials areas love thise items especially the ones that use public transport. The lady that makes the rostekoek mentioned that she prepares the dough at night before she goes to bed then wake up very early in the morning to bake them in the oven. The items are reasonably priced making them affordable to the target market; russians sell at R3, fried fish at R5 and vetkoek sell at R1.50 each. These items sell out everyday and they are always fresh, which makes them more appealing to the people that buy them.
What is your favourite street food? Which items are being sold in your hood? Do you ever buy from the vendors?
