Hermanus Farmers Market

This organic market is a hit with locals and tourists. Liza Copenhagen, organisor of this much needed tourist attraction, (although I spotted many more locals) introduced me to the ‘bread lady.’ One of my biggest downfalls in life is bread – used to be the fruit of the vine – no more – sigh…
I was able to leisurely stroll from stall to stall while my kids were entertained at the Kids Clay section.This is a popular market on a Saturday morning for residents of Hermanus and the surrounds. Its setting is the Hermanuspietersfontein Wine Cellars at the Hemel en Aarde Village closest to Onrus, and if you’re not there to pick up the weekend’s nibbles and nosh, then you’re there for breakfast with friends. It’s a market in much the same vein as the Neighbourgoods and the Earth Fair markets in Cape Town, although on a slightly smaller scale. It can get busy though, so you might want to get here relatively early.
Do yourself a favour and pop in next Saturday behind the Montessori School. But be warned, you will have to arrive early – all produce is sold by 11 am. Go to our kids page to read more about activities planned for March with children.

Traders of the week for 16 February.
