Get out of the busy Joburg city for the weekend

Get out of the busy Joburg city for the weekend

Situated on William Nicol along the R511; a stone’s throw from Fourways, Riversands Farm Village Market is the new weekend attraction promising an activity for each member of the family; even your four legged companion. It is more than just a market, but a unique destination spanning 10 Hectares. With Tree Top zip-lining, a dedicated kiddies play section, dog walking area and a farm style market the venue should ensure no one walks away without a smile.

Stalls are carefully selected to ensure they suit the Riversands ambience. The vendors include handmade leather goods and clothing, fresh juice and homemade ice cream, organic peanut butter, organic/free range farm butcher with biltong, game, fresh butter, milk and cream and vintage signs etc.

A craft beer pub servs up ice cold brew. There is also food from all over the world including German, Italian, American, Japanese and Greek.

The farm gained popularity in recent years for hosting the gruelling 94.7 Cycle Challenge and the annual music festival, Joburg Day in conjunction with local radio station 94.7. Some film connoisseurs might even recognise the original farm house from the Leon Schuster film, ‘Mad Buddies’ and the international blockbuster, ‘Long Walk to Freedom’.
Escape the stress and flurry of the city and enjoy a day next to the dam with your loved ones.
