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 24th February between 10h00 and 15h00.
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 well-loved 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, will no doubt be extremely popular.
Music is always a key part of the Market. Highly-acclaimed 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. For more information go to: www.francoishaasbroek.com.
Family-friendly activities will as always be a priority. Don’t miss the Kids Magic Show at 12h00 and a Balloon Twister will be roaming around, providing entertainment between 11h00 and 13h00. 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 12h30, 13h30 and 14h30, 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 please be kept on a leash at all times.
