Kloovenburg Spring Market Day

This is definitely where I’ll be headed – a seasonal harvest market in the great outdoors of the lovely Riebeek Valley. I haven’t been before, but I’ve heard good things, and it is supposed to showcase the ‘finest fresh produce from the Valley and Surrounds’.

Kloovenburg will also be showcasing their wines, and will be offering light meals and wine by the glass.

Saturday 19 September. 8.30am to 3pm. Kloovenburg Wine & Olive Estate, Riebeek Kasteel. (more info)

Stellenbosch Fresh Goods Market

It looks like decent weather for Saturday (fingers crossed), which makes it a perfect day for heading out to Stellenbosch and checking out the Stellenbosch Fresh Goods Market in its new, more outdoorsy location at Oude Libertas.

Grab some excellent food and glass of local bubbly and annex a piece of lawn. It’s a fantastic way to pass the hours…

Saturday 19 September. 9.am to 2pm. Oude Libertas, Stellenbosch. (more info)
