The Happy-Making Stellenbosch Fresh Goods Market

30 11 2010

If you’ve read my post on the glorious Neighbourgoods Market in Cape Town, you’ll know I have a penchant for fresh produce, especially the kind that you can eat and browse. Nothing tastes better than a Saturday stroll through a vibey food market, and The Fresh Goods Market just outside Stellenbosch is no exception.

We randomly stumbled upon the market on our drive back from Franshhoek on Saturday morning – where we’d stayed at the utterly charming Klein Oliphants Hoek Hotel, which I’ll write more about soon.

The market’s delightful and wholly happy-making. A plethora of beautiful, unpretentious food from all around the world against the backdrop of the Stellenbosch mountains – really, it’s postcard stuff and you need to check it out soon – you could even try and make it for the CANDLELIGHT CHRISTMAS MARKET THIS FRIDAY NIGHT…!

Middle-Eastern Pizzas

Don’t miss the Latina ladies and their unbelievable tacos and ciabattas

Pear & Goats Cheese and Mozarella & Sundried Tomato Snacks from the Orinoco Stand

Ever-capably thirst quenching artisanal beer

Or you could go with a Dr Juice from the organic juice people instead

They have Gruyere to die for.

Cupcakes fit for The Queen

The beetroot juice from Dr Juice is magnificent! But then, I’m quite partial to beetroot juice in any case…

This is a fantastic market. Almost everything I’ve ever had there was delicious. Also –
their charcuterie and cheeses are always worth it. Lovely photographs, by the way!

This looks awesome! I am ashamed to admit that I have only ever been to The Biscuit Mill in Woodstock and never felt inclined to go anywhere else for my market fix! This looks so lovely, I am definitely going to go!
