Country hospitality on your doorstep on the last Sunday of every month between 10h00 and 15h00. Take a break, round up the family and head out to the country to join the Pentz family in the gardens at Groote Post.

The terrace in front of Hilda’s Kitchen and adjacent to the Cellar will be a hive of activity, brimming with delicious and beautiful country offerings. Guests can expect artisan foods, arts and crafts, home ware and décor, live entertainment, lots of fun activities for kids, and of course, Groote Post’s well-loved wines.

Local is lekker with locals presenting a divine selection of Darling gourmet produce including mushrooms, burgers, breads, cheese, cured meats, olive oils, preserves and much more - to enjoy at the market or take home. Kids will love the rolling lawns, playground, tractor trips and guided horse rides. All Groote Post’s wines will be available for tasting and purchase by the glass, bottle or case. As a special treat, Nick Pentz and winemaker Lukas Wentzel will be launching a Groote Post Rosé made exclusively for the farm’s monthly market visitors. Groote Post’s award-winning restaurant will be open as usual and visitors will also have the opportunity of going on a farm drive through the game camp and vineyards in Groote Post’s bona fide game vehicle.

The Groote Post Country Market is being organized by the vibrant ladies from I Love Yzer who publish a local magazine in print and online and arrange a number of successful events in the area.
