Woodmill Lifestyle Market

A new market has popped up on the radar, this time in Stellenbosch.

The Woodmill Lifestyle Market launched earlier this month, and will be held every on the last Friday evening of the month from 5.30pm to 10pm. The location: The Woodmill, Vredenburg Road, Stellenbosch (off Adam Tas).

I haven’t yet had a chance to go and check it out for myself, but here is what organisers had to say about what would be on offer:

The Woodmill market will focus mainly on lifestyle products, we have everything from clothing designers, ceramics, artists, jewellers etc. There will be wine farms and a micro brewery. Yummy things to eat from Lebanese to Italian to Indian, breads and pesto’s etc.
All this while being entertained by live music.

I’ll be interested to see the ratio of food to ‘craft’ (I’m almost always more interested in food markets, but if the quality of goods is exceptional, I can be swayed), and keen to find out whether the market can offer something unique in this now rather competitive arena!

    Hi Diana

    Yes, I will definitely be coming to see it some time soon – just haven’t a chance yet!


  • Diana says:

    Yes, as its now held every week you should have it easier. Or sleep over in the area and combine it with the Hearth fair at Stellenbosch at Saturday, it seems to reopen finally at the 29.10.

    Best Regards

    Yes, I think the Hearth Fair Market has moved to another location, and there will now be a new market sharing space with the Stellenbosch Fresh Goods Market (the Treasure Market, I think it’s called). I’m sure I’ll get there some time soon!
