About
Situated on the stunningly scenic and historic Lourensford Wine Estate, we didn’t have to add much to appeal to all the senses. When visiting, you are spoiled with sprawling lawns, majestic trees and newly landscaped, award-winning gardens with an interactive fountain. A rare and special space to soak up all of nature’s beauty! Add to that our vibrant market, boasting with more than 70 permanent stalls, as well as a number of Pop-ups to ensure an interesting mix. Housed in a permanent u-shaped structure with both a modern and rustic feel – it is unlike any other market space around. Quality products are our first priority and when strolling from vendor to vendor, you will find everything from delectable food, uniquely handmade wares and original art, to organic, locally sourced, artisanal produce. The Estate’s superb wine collection alongside ABRU craft beer, complement the inevitable festive atmosphere.

Implementing medical apartheid is despicable! I attend this market regularly when in South Africa and have always enjoyed supporting local entrepreneurs including food and crafts but dictating to the vendors to have a medical procedure is a matter of choice and not one to be forced. Also not impressed by the Facebook page saying they were closed Friday 15 and Sat 16 due to weather when the website says come rain or shine. The medical apartheid letter went viral and has caused a tsunami of anger.

Really buzzy food market, with nice wine bar service. Good value and heaps of atmosphere. Supposed to get parking refunded off wine order, but that didn't happen and it was hard to debate it in the crush. Excellent food from a wonderful Lebanese stall with a great lady doing her stuff in style.

There aren't enough words to describe the beauty of this place. The setting is out of this world. The "estate" is breathtaking. The market is a perfect way to spend some time in this paradise while eating delicious, real food with live music. Open Saturday and Sunday. Not a traditional flea market place. Quality food stalls, few with handmade jewellery and clothes. Ample parking. ATM on premises. Coffee roastery, seperate restaurant, art gallery, wine tasting. Just get there

Wine tasting, excellent restaurants, wonderful gardens, play areas for the young ones, a food market, art gallery, a water fountain in which the kids are allowed to play on a sunny day, makes Lourensford THE place to visit.

Wounderful wine estate, beautiful gardens and grounds and a very lively food market but Fridays and Sundays only.
Great place for families, wide choice in the food market, something for everyone and very reasonably priced. Eat in the market and enjoy the atmosphere
or “picnic” in the adjacent extensive grounds. A must visit if you are in the Somerset West area.

Great family day out with interesting food and stalls. Nicest is that children can run around on the lawn safely!

Good food. Good vibes. Wine and friendship. Live music. Beautifull location. Family times. Manicured gardens. Forget for a moment a drought stricken Cape, terrible traffic, the hell run and other unsavoury experiences and spend an hour or three in an ambiance of peace and well being. Unforgetable.

Went to the night market on a Friday night.The cellar has a beautiful setting and lovely gardens. The children we saw were having great fun enjoying running on the lawns. Nice atmosphere, delicious food, good variety of stalls to choose from and reasonably priced! The proteas for sale are beautiful and fresh, so plan to buy a bunch on your way out
