Nothing says summer quite like the return of strawberry season – and it’s just about here! At the end of October, the Stellenbosch and Willowbridge ‘Slow’ Markets will be celebrating the return of sunny days with a Strawberry Fair – featuring all things strawberry.
Seasonal freshly picked palettes of strawberries, Robertson Valley pomegranate juices and delectable reductions ideally topped on Ice Cream. Our local Boland farmers adorn us with blueberries & blackberries and our award winning producers and traders infuse their popular meals with all things berry. Berry Cordials, Strawberry Dacarees, Berry Ice Cream, Rudi’s Strawberry Sausage, Strawberry bakes and strawberry jams. Even our crafters infuse berries into their soaps, bath salts and design.
And, an additional incentive – alongside the regular food market will be the monthly Treasury Market, showcasing hand picked and local goods made by designers, crafters and artisans.
Traders always put on a fantastic show, with strawberry-red showing up in even the most unlikely places. If you’re a fan of the strawberry and its many delights, this is definitely not one to be missed!
