A Saturday Morning at the Stellenbosch Slow Market


A fantastic gourmet food, fresh goods and craft market selling delicious organic produce. You can purchase all your weekly groceries at the market including fruit, veggies, meat and dairy products. The market provides a platform for local farmers to provide healthy food with no pesticides and hormones to the customer.

This is an authentic Slow Food Market that sells products that have been grown, raised, harvested, caught, preserved, handmade or transformed by the producers themselves. The market features specialty food and wine producers, food artisans, local farmers, natural and organic merchants, clothing, jewellery, seasonal goods and designer ware.

If you stay in the area you can order a food basket delivered to you weekly, a fantastic way to support the agricultural community and a wonderful way to provide nourishing organic foods to the family and save you the hassle of supermarkets.

There are tons of delicious food stalls to choose from with a huge variety of homemade dishes, delectable treats, pastries, fresh juices, smoothies, coffee (which thanks to Eskom we didn’t get a chance to taste), estate wines, champagne and sweet treats.


At the market you will also find a superb range of local fashion, jewellery and artisan crafts to browse through. I found a lovely necklace and bracelet and very well priced.

I would not list this one as child friendly. We had our two with us but it was difficult to get around with a pram and there is not much for them to do but play on a small piece of lawn. It was ok for a quick stop but we didn’t stay as long as I would of liked. If you do decide to visit I would suggest taking a picnic blanket to sit on the lawn.

The market is on rain or shine thanks to a Bedouin tent which protects the market. I would highly recommend this market, a food lovers paradise.
