Situated on the R44 between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, the Blaauwklippen Family Market is a wonderfully relaxing way to spend your Sunday. The small producers’ 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 – and more food stalls.
Outdoors under the trees are long rows of tables, but seating is limited, so it’s advisable 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 (bring-your-own-picnics are not allowed, but there’s plenty on offer at the various food stalls), while enjoying a bottle of Blaauwklippen wine to the strains of live music.
Your children will have loads to keep them entertained: pony rides, Zorb balls, soccer darts, jumping castles, pedal carts, and friendly goats to pet and feed. Add to that, the market is dog-friendly.
