Fancy doing your bit for the environment and a cleaner, greener you?
Rock up at Stellenbosch Slow Market this Saturday, 17 June for the All Things Green Market Day.
Open from 9am to 2pm at Oude Libertas Estate, the aim is to promote awareness of local, sustainable solutions to modern-day environmental issues through consumer power. Choose green and live clean, with healthy, fresh organic food and veggies.
Shopping at the Slow Market, directly from the makers or farmers, means you lighten your carbon footprint, lessen plastic packaging and waste while supporting small-scale traders and producers.
The focus this coming All Things Green Day will be on eco-friendly lifestyles and food production. Expect to find greywater systems, eco-worm farms, water-wise hanging plants, organic household and skin care ranges plus recycled and upcycled furniture.
The market has been operating continuously for more than a decade with over 100 traders. They’ll all be present on Saturday, selling freshly baked handmade breads, German cakes, organic vegetables and delicious street food.
In keeping with the theme there will also be green smoothies, green macarons, green cupcakes and even veggie burgers!
As a special feature, the Earthbound Wine Lounge is collaborating with Me Granny’s Soup to create a soup and wine pairing. Chill out with friends by the huge open fireplace with some snacks and vino, knowing that your little ones can play safely in a well-stocked playground.
There are some great picks for Fathers’ Day treats, too: liqueurs, chocolates and wine, Stokkiesdraai’s famous biltong and lekker local craft beers.
Slow Market is a reinvention of the public market place and aims to support small businesses marginalised by mainstream retail. It is community orientated and well-loved in Stellenbosch where it has been established as a leading gourmet market.
Since it’s an undercover venue, Slow Market is the perfect market to visit in rainy weather. Bring the whole family!
Entry is free with ample parking.
