This week’s challenge or theme for #romancingthehome was a trip to the market. In case you didn’t realise it from my Kamers post, I love markets. The vibe, the produce, the local makers, the live music… there aren’t many better ways to spend a day off! Luckily for us, Cape Town and surrounds has so many markets that it’s hard to keep up. That’s why we landed up going to 2 markets for this expedition – we were spoilt for choice!
For this trip, we went out Stellenbosch way; the weather was perfect and the views, as always, stunning!
The Blaauwklippen Family Market is open every Sunday from 10:00 to 15:00 and features some awesome food and local makers. They have a lovely kiddies play area and have tons of seating – both at harvest style tables and on the grassy areas surrounding the market. Added to that, your 4-legged besties are more than welcome, as long as they are kept on a leash as well 😉
For those of you that weren’t aware, this year’s KAMERS/Makers Stellenbosch 2018 market is being held at Blaauwklippen as well, so that’s just another reason to visit the beautiful Blaauwklippen Vineyards.
2. Root 44
The Root 44 Market is open every Saturday and Sunday from 09:00, rain or shine. This is another one of my favourite markets to visit, just because of the range of goodies available from food, to clothing, to home decor. They too have a kiddies area to keep the kiddos entertained as well as more of those gorgeous Stellenbosch views.
Right, that’s it – a very short post (shocker for me, I know!), but I hope that you enjoyed my photo journal of a day well spent!
If you are looking to more markets in and around the Cape, check out Cape Markets. It’s a hub of information of everything that’s going on, where it’s going on and what to expect when you get there. I receive their weekly Friday e-mails and I’m constantly amazed on how spoiled for choice that we are here in Cape Town; there really is something for everyone!
What are some of your favourite markets? I’d love to check them out (if I’m close enough); otherwise I shall go and stalk their websites and dream of visiting them one day!
Lastly, don’t forget to visit my #romancingthehome friends to see what they got up to:
