Aaaaah, it’s the weekend. Time to sit back, relax, have a bite, go to a market, meet up with friends… It’s just pure bliss. And nowhere is this better understood than in the Cape Winelands. Our second weekend market recommendation (in a series of 4) is the Lourensford Market in the Helderberg Basin.
The Lourensford Market is the perfect place from which to escape the busy city life, and to experience the Winelands slightly off the beaten track. Due to its excellent location and stunning surrounds, the Helderberg basin has now become the trendiest new stop.
Located on the scenic and historic Lourensford Wine Estate, the market is home to 70 permanent and regular pop-up exhibitors. The focus beneath the permanent structures of the market is on quality produce, including delectable foods, quality art, organic, artisanal produce, craft beer and barista coffee. Be on the lookout for kiddies rides as well as the local doggy bar. Popular local artists provide the live music which adds that special something to the day. Mountain bikers and trail runners can be on the lookout for regular events, which is updated on Facebook.
All of this within in the breathtaking landscape of the Lourensford Estate grounds and the surrounding Helderberg mountains!
More about Strand Beach Lodge:
Strand Beach Lodge is the perfect spot from which to enjoy the Lourensford Market. The lodge is one of the very few properties in Strand that is situated directly on the beachfront, with no road in-between the villa and the beach. The luxurious villa offers ample open-plan areas for friends to reconnect over some good wine and breathtaking views. When the night cools down and the fires run out, everyone can retreat to their own private bedroom to recharge for the next day’s festivities. What better place to relax with friends than at Strand Beach Lodge, where the sea meets the Winelands. View Special Packages Now
