Events and More are super thrilled to announce the launch of an on-trend, lifestyle market at Meerendal Wine Estate on Saturday 21st July 2018. Housed in an aluminium-frame, super-cosy, all-weather Marquee this is the perfect way to spend a relaxing day with family and friends. Adding excitement to our launch date is Nelson Mandela’s Centennial birthday celebration on the 18th July as well as the 3rd birthday celebration for Durbanville Parkrun who host their event weekly at Meerendal. The culmination of these two events will make for an exciting, not to be missed day out!
What to expect:
Local is Lekker!!! There’s nothing better than checking our local artists, sampling amazing food listening to live music, drinking fabulous wine and having your kids safely entertained - all at once!
Once you’re at the farmers market, don’t go for the very first stand you see. Take a walk around and look at the different prices that are being charged for the ingredients you’re looking for. If you live a distance from the market or plan on making a day of it stash a cooler in the back of your car to keep perishables fresh.
So get ready to swap out a frustrating day at the local shopping mall and stock up your cupboards for the week at very affordable prices. Arrive ready and armed with a shopping list that will cover all your requirement for the upcoming week. There will be a large selection of products and treats available such as a wide selection of products and treats such as the freshest organic fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, dry goods, preserves, homemade confectionary as well as a wide selection of arts and crafts.
We have bar facilities available serving a selection of craft beers, Meerendal Wines and “naughty” cocktails as well as a wide choice of non-alcoholic and soft drinks. The bar will be serving from 10h00am.
The Meerendal Bar will have a selection of the Meerendal wines available for tasting. The range on offer will meet all wine drinker palates and can be paired with your choice of delectable meals. It will be safely packaged and ready for you when you leave the market at our Retail Bar situated at the exit point.
Your kids will be in safe hands with us. Sign them into a secure area where they will be able to enjoy a wide variety of fun-filled activities catering for all ages. Parents can relax in full eye-view of their kids in a shaded area with close proximity to the music.
Durbanville park run is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 8:00 am at Meerendal Wine Estate. It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to get physically active. The Meerendal Farmers Market will be open from 07h30 to serve a selection of hot beverages and breakfast options to all participants. There will be a seating area available for those runners that have family who want to come along but does not want to take part. Free entrance to the launch event will be given to all park run attendees on presentation of their barcode identity.
If you’ve never checked out a farmers’ market, this is the perfect time to start. Support local entrepreneurs and do your part in reducing the carbon footprint. What’s more, a weekly trip to the local market is a total cure for those winter day blues when your kids are bored and you can change a tiresome day at the shops into a wonderful all-around treat.
