De Warenmarkt Oyster Fest with Free Simonsig Bubbly

Post date:


Yes, you read that right. *free bubbly*.

Actually, they had me at oysters but hey, it’s not like free MCC is going to put anyone off, is it? Especially not if that bubbly comes from Simonsig.

The charming and lovely folks at De Warenmarkt are hosting an Oyster Fest on the weekend of 7-8 July. If you’re anywhere in, near, or within driving distance of Stellenbosch on those two days, then I suggest you get busy to make a booking on the double. 

And oh yeah, here’s the kicker: no entry charge

Some people, eh? They just know how to do life right. And luckily for us, De Warenmarkt  are those people.   

Read all about it, below these mood-setting, appetite-wetting photos. 

There is no cover charge for the event and costs are as per usual on the menu. This includes a complimentary glass of Simonsig bubbles with each portion of 6 oysters ordered. Let that sink in.

Booking however is advisable. 
Times are from Friday 7th – 11am until 9:30pm and again Sat 8th 11am – 9:30pm. 

There will be live music during the course of both days. 


The Oyster Fest is to celebrate the brand new Kaapse Vonkel and Oyster Bar in De Warenmarkt. The fresh Saldanha Bay oysters are getting rave reviews. 

Oyster Fest is sponsored by Simonsig. Various oyster dishes such as Oysters Rockefeller and other mouthwatering recipes will be on offer.

De Warenmarkt is a unique concept and sent this info:

Introduced to Stellenbosch over 2 years ago, it’s based in one of the towns oldest buildings. It’s a great place for business meetings, celebrations and dates, or just hanging with your squad. Choose from the variety of small, independent local producers and suppliers, who serve some of the best our region has to offer. 

Inspired by the Cape of Good Hope’s legacy as original trading post along the maritime route that led to the Spice Isles centuries ago, today the hot, hip and totally happening De Warenmarkt brings you a big range of delectable edibles. Think: speciality meats from Ryan Boon, cheeses, baked goods, craft beer, Deluxe coffee, fresh produce, Belgian waffles, cold pressed juices and much more.

Kick back, chill and taste the dynamic cultural heritage that makes the Cape one of the best places to eat on the planet.
