Situated on the R44 between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, the Blaauwklippen Family Market is a wonderfully relaxing way to spend your Sunday. The small producer’s section, situated in an old farm building, is a great place to stock up on charcuterie, olives, cheese and freshly baked breads, while there are plenty of craft, fashion, jewellery and lifestyle stalls outdoors – as well as more food stalls.
There are long rows of tables in the shade under the trees, but seating is limited, so guests are advised to get there early. If you don’t get a table, there is a large grassy spot with ample space for you to relax and enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon. Lay out a picnic blanket and have some lunch, while enjoying a bottle of Blaauwklippen wine to the strains of live music.
Children’s entertainment includes pony rides, Zorb balls, soccer darts, jumping castles, pedal carts and friendly goats to pet and feed.
