Fresh produce and craft markets

January 10, 2014

There are a wealth of local markets within easy reach of Penny Lane Lodge where you can buy souvenirs and gifts for family and friends…and yourself.  You can buy fresh and tasty local produce to enjoy as a picnic or for a braai – we have the facilities here!

Here are a few of our closest current favourites:

Root 44

root44-ad‘Every Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine’ is Root 44’s motto. Located on the R44 about halfway between Somerset West and Stellenbosch, on the Audacia wine farm, this large market offers something for everyone, every weekend.  There is a huge variety of stalls, all undercover including clothing and accessories, arts and crafts, hand-made jewellery and original art works, together with an interesting and varied food and drink section where you can buy a picnic lunch, or something to take away and enjoy later.

There is a ‘fun zone’ where kids can play, and plenty of tables and chairs providing a welcome place to relax – inside or out. Live music plays and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.

Location: Audacia Wines, Cnr of R44 & Annandale Road, Stellenbosch
When: Saturdays & Sundays 09h00 – 15h30

Blaauklippen Vineyards hold a weekly food and craft market every Sunday. Located a little further along the R44 from Root44, this family market has a range of stalls selling a whole range of different crafts, curios and other gifts, as well as a food market and more stalls selling snacks and beverages. Blaauklippen’s own wines are also on offer. There are pony rides and other activities to amuse the kids and a jungle gym to play on. The restaurant and tasting room are also open.

Country Craft Market

The Country Craft Market is held during the summer months at Southey’s Vines – easy walking distance from us at Penny Lane Lodge.

Location: 186 Main Road, Somerset West
When: Twice a month on Saturdays (some exceptions and with additional dates in December). 9am-2pm. Closed May to August.
