Make the most of the good weather before winter arrives and head out to the country to join the Pentz family in the gardens at Groote Post for their Country Market on Sunday 28th April between 10h00 and 15h00.
The terrace in front of Hilda’s Kitchen and adjacent to the Cellar will be brimming with market stalls offering delicious and beautiful country offerings including artisan foods, arts and crafts, homeware, clothing, décor, gifts, jewellery, accessories, toys, fresh produce and more. Local is always lekker at Groote Post, with a divine selection of Darling gourmet produce including: Weskus Worswa, Darling Honey, Darling Meat Market, the popular Darling Brew and of course Groote Post’s well-loved wines. Make sure you pop in at the Bubbly Stand for a glass of Groote Post’s gorgeous Brut Rosé.
After browsing through the market, chill out on the beautiful lawns under the trees to the sounds of the alter-rock-acoustic-blues band, the Jimm Harisson Project, while tucking into yummy treats from the market.
Groote Post’s award-winning restaurant, Hilda’s Kitchen, will be open as usual for the market, but booking is essential.
Family-friendly activities will as always be a priority. Kids will be kept busy with various kiddies’ activities: tractor rides, guided horse rides, the popular playground and more.
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.
