Windmeul Kelder's Parskuip Market in Paarl

Want to "wine" down over locally farmed and home-made produce? Then get ready for Parskuip Neighbourhood Market Place.

Want to be on cloud wine? Then Parskuip Neighbourhood Market Place is the place for you. Whether it is choosing your favourite from their wine collection, or local gourmet food, or the kids playing in the kids zone, this market is sure to keep the family entertained. Recently opening its doors in August, this marketplace stocks locally sourced and produced items and gives preference to small farmers.

The Market Place resembles an old-fashioned pantry with shelves filled with seasonal produce and local delicacies, as well as award-winning wine. This year, the Windmeul Kelder’s Chenin blanc made it to the 2017 Standard Bank Top 10 Chenin Blanc list, and two of their Pinotage wines have been announced as finalists for the 2017 ABSA Top 10 Pinotage Awards. This marks the 7th time Windmeul Kelder’s Pinotage wine makes it into the Top 10 spot.

Finding a decadent selection of fudges and nougat will soothe that sweet tooth, and running into childhood favourites like vanilla and cherry flavoured Coke, will leave you feeling nostalgic. The market has a variety of local food artisans. Carnivores can delight in farm-raised poultry and prime cuts of meat, alongside biltong and droëwors. The pantry styled market will have your basket overfilled with goodies. Pick your choice from specialist coffees, marinades, dips and even indigenous waterblommetjies can be found on the shelves when it is in season.

The food: The menu prides itself in being simplistic. From a farm breakfast that comprises of eggs, bacon, sausage, beans and rosterkoek with butter and cheese, or the farm breakfast pizza that has six eggs, a generous portion of bacon, tomatoes, cheese and rocket. If breakfast is not your thing, you can choose from the pizza menu that has an array of gourmet pizza’s made with a homemade recipe and prepared in a wood fire oven.

The interior: The market space is an extension of the Windmeul Cellar, and if you touch the walls which used to be wine tanks, you can still feel the crystallization of the sugar from the fermentation process of the wines. The handcrafted stall names are made from the bottom wheel of wine barrels, each naming a specific wine in store at the cellar.

The experience: Cellar master Danie Marais, says that Windmeul is committed to craftsmanship, not only with their wines but also in the produce stocked at Parskuip Neighbourhood market. “Consumers are increasingly looking for artisanal products that have been crafted with care.  It is also very important for us to support local businesses, which focuses on sustainability and most of our suppliers are located in close proximity to Windmeul.”

Note: The market is set to open its kitchen daily (as opposed to Saturday’s market only) in the near future, adding more gourmet treats to their menu.  

Tip: When buying a bottle of wine, you get R15 off a pizza which is fairly large and can feed 2 people.  Wine prices per bottle range from R37,00  to R150,00.

The Bill: The menu is set to expand, but for now the offerings are a farmer's breakfast and gourmet pizza’s on Saturday’s only. |Breakfast: R60 - R99 | Lunch: R69 – R89  

Opening Times: Days and times | Monday to Friday: 8am - 5pm | Saturdays: 9am - 3pm
