Darling Escape To The Groote Post Country Market
A darling market with plenty of heart and country fare suitable for the whole family
Located on the historical grounds of Groote Post estate off Darling Hills Road in the charming West Coast town of Darling, the much-loved market kicks off the year on Sunday 27 January 2019 and every last Sunday of the month thereafter.
If you’re on the hunt for hearty cuisine, beautiful homeware, arts, crafts, décor and more, then this magical market is your cup of tea. Darling is about 75km from Cape Town, but the quaint and oh-so-pretty area is well worth the drive. Abuzz with people and stalls offering a smorgasbord of tip-top country produce, the delightful fair is the ideal way to while away a relaxing day in the sunshine with food, wine, family and friends.
FOOD, WINE AND PICNIC DINING
Celebrate local produce with plenty of artisan breads, cheeses, mushrooms, meats and other morsels to keep foodies happy. Grab a selection of superb snacks and then complement your meal with some of fine wines. All Groote Post’s well-loved wines are available for tasting and purchase by the glass, bottle or case.
Tuck into your tasty picnic while the kids play on the rolling lawns, scramble in the playground or enjoy tractor and pony rides. If you have some extra time, opt for a farm drive through the game camp and vineyards, and enjoy gorgeous vistas of the region while spotting antelope and other critters great and small.
There are three Lucky Draws at 12:30pm, 1:30pm and 2:30pm. The winners each receive a hamper with products from the market and wine from Groote Post, but you must be at the draw to win.
Pets are welcome but all dogs must be on a leash at all times.
