Join the Slow Food phenomenon in Stellies
Experience an ancient way of shopping in a modern context and find the real story on how food is farmed.
The Stellenbosch Fresh Goods market conveniently brings together a variety of fine foods and wines. Goods with known provenance are sold fairly. That means no long cold storage, no over processed chemically laden foods, no excessive food miles or doubtful production methods.
Customers get to taste before they buy and you can bargain and swap recipes in the process. Our food is fresh seasonal and locally grown making it simple, nourishing and delicious. By trading the food grown on the urban edges directly from the producers, market organisers aim to make the food chain more sustainable and environmentally sensitive.
Come and support your friend and neighbour, the small scale artisan producer of fine foods who uses only the freshest ingredients and makes your food with care.
Stock up on Slow Food from over 70 stalls with yummy foods ranging from Street Food like Jou ma se kos heritage foods; saried Indian curries and fresh spices; fresh handmade pasta with saucy sauces; slow roasted coffee beans and dark juicy chocolates; healthy sandwiches and salads and lots more.
