Groote Post Country Market

Country hospitality on your doorstep on the last Sunday of the month during summer between 10am and 3pm.
Take a break, round up the family and head out to the country to join the Pentz family in the gardens at Groote Post for their monthly country markets on the last Sunday of the month.

The terrace in front of Hilda’s Kitchen and adjacent to the Cellar is always a hive of activity, brimming with delicious and beautiful country offerings including artisan foods, arts and crafts, home ware, clothing, décor, gifts, lots of fun activities for kids, and of course, Groote Post’s well-loved wines. Local is always lekker with a divine selection of Darling gourmet produce including mushrooms, burgers, breads, cured meats, olive oils, preserves and of course, the popular Darling Brew. All Groote Post’s wines are available for tasting and purchase by the glass, bottle or case.

Music is a key part of this popular event, and each market features either a popular musician or a DJ. After browsing through the market, visitors can relax under the trees while tucking into their delicious eats from the market. Groote Post’s award-winning restaurant, Hilda’s Kitchen, is always open for the markets, but booking is essential.

The kids are kept busy with a wide variety of kiddies’ activities: tractor rides, face-painting, guided horse rides, the popular playground and more. Although pets are welcome, all dogs must be on a leash at all times.
