The festive season has sadly come and gone, but Groote Post’s Markets are still going strong. In fact, they are celebrating the 50th edition of their popular Country Markets on Sunday 26th January 2020! So why not start your year off with a day of family fun and relaxation at Groote Post Vineyards peacefully nestled in the hills around the beautiful town of Darling.
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: Darling Honey, Burger Fellas, Darling Sweet, Nellies Homemade Pies, the popular Darling Brew and of course Groote Post’s well-loved wines. Look out for popular newcomers to the market such as Sunshine Food Company’s Vegan Stand, Asian Bites (Authentic Asian food) and more…
After browsing through the market, relax on the beautiful lawns under the trees tucking into delicious eats from the market and enjoying the sound of The Coffee and Cream Band made up of saxophone, piano, bass guitar, electric and acoustic guitar and multi-layered vocal harmonies.
The little ones, as always, will be busy with a wide variety of kiddies’ activities: tractor trips, guided horse rides and, of course, the popular playground and rolling lawns.
There are 3 Lucky Draws at every market – at 12h30, 13h30 and 14h30. The winners will each receive a hamper with products from the market and wine from Groote Post, but you must be at the draw to win. The 3 winners from each market will go towards a BIG DRAW at the end of the season. The lucky winner will win a 2x night stay in Yzerfontein. Please note the overall winner must be at the last market in April 2020 to win the big prize.
