Take a break, round up the family and head out to the country to join the Pentz family in the gardens at Groote Post for their February “Made with Love” Country Market on Sunday, February 24, between 10am and 3pm.
The terrace in front of Hilda’s Kitchen and adjacent to the Cellar will be brimming with market stalls “Decked Out with Love”, offering delicious and beautiful country offerings including artisan foods, arts and crafts, homeware, clothing, décor, gifts, jewellery, accessories, toys, fresh produce and more – all “Made with Love”. Local is always lekker at Groote Post, with a divine selection of Darling gourmet produce including: Weskus Worswa, Darling Honey, Darling Olives, the popular Darling Brew and of course Groote Post’s wines which will be available for tasting and purchase by the glass, bottle or case. A new Champagne stand, to celebrate the month of love, should be a popular attraction.
Music is always a key part of the Market. Cape Town musician, Francois Haasbroek, will be entertaining the market-goers with folk and acoustic rock-styled covers, popular favourites, golden oldies and classic songs that never go out of style.
Family-friendly activities will as always be a priority. Don’t miss the Kids Magic Show at 12pm and a Balloon Twister will be roaming around, providing entertainment between 11am and 1pm. Kids will also be kept busy with a wide variety of other kiddies’ activities: tractor rides, guided horse rides, the popular playground and more.
After browsing through the market, visitors will be relaxing under the trees while tucking into their delicious eats from the market. Groote Post’s award-winning restaurant, Hilda’s Kitchen, will be open as usual for the market, but booking is essential. A third tent will provide much-needed shade during the summer months.
The Three Market Lucky Draws will take place at 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm, the winners each receiving a hamper with products from the market and Groote Post wine, but you must be present at the draw to win.
The Groote Post Market is an outing for the whole family, including one’s furry children, but dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.
Only an hour’s drive from Cape Town, the historic Groote Post farm is situated in the Darling Hills, and presents a rustic and rural atmosphere with undulating hills, vast open spaces and warm country hospitality.
* Entry to the Groote Post Country Market is free of charge.
Opening hours: 10am to 3pm
