Root 44 Market at Audacia Farm (Stellenbosch)

The Root 44 Market is a new food and craft market in the Stellenbosch area. Located at Audacia Farm, on the R44 between Stellenbosch & Somerset West, this exciting addition to the Cape market scene offers visitors a wide variety of food choices, in beautiful (mostly covered) wine farm surroundings.
ROOT 44 Market Experience is open every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm – and plans to operate throughout the winter season.  There is plenty of parking, and the market is very kid-friendly, with a natural wooden children’s area to keep the little ‘uns entertained.
In addition to two large marquees housing regular traders, the market will also showcase a number of casual traders outdoors, changing from week to week.  Plus, there will be plenty of entertainment, in the form of live music and workshops and activities for both kids and adults.
