The September market will be overflowing with the essence of spring, with all the market stalls colourfully adorned with flowers and showcasing their finest spring fare, and the seating area decorated with spring flowers from the farm. It will be the ideal time to soak up the “soft balmy sunshine and the flower-scented air”, according to Groote Post’s very own ‘Grande Dame of Cape Cuisine’, Hildagonda Duckitt, who so loved the West Coast spring splendour with its “magnificent tapestry of flowers”.
Guests can expect 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, Burger Fellas, Darling Sweet, Nellies Homemade Pies, the popular Darling Brew and of course Groote Post’s well-loved wines. A very popular addition will be Groote Post’s Bubbly and Oyster stand.
The Spring Market will present a perfect playground for children who will love the rolling lawns and popular playground as well as the tractor rides, guided horse rides and more…
Music is always a key part of the Market.
