Anyone travelling along the R27 road along the Cape West Coast towards Yzerfontein and Langebaan will be familiar with the Vyge Valley Farmstall. It’s a good place to stop and stock up on some lunch or take-away snacks, or fill up at the small petrol station – especially if, like me, you prefer supporting farmstalls instead of the more commercial one-stops alongthe way.
They’ve even got a nursery!
And now, every last Saturday of the month, they will be hosting a fresh produce market with some delicious-sounding treats in store for passers-by… gourmet mushrooms, home-made preserves and cheeses and just-baked farm bread, to name a few.
Definitely worth checking out if you’re heading up that way for the weekend, as many Capetonians do.
The Vyge Valley Farmstall Fresh Produce Market will be held every last Saturday of the month (starting this week: 25 July 2009) from 9am to 2pm. For more information call 022 492 2586.
