Be it to escape city life, or to experience something slightly off the winelands beaten track, the Helderberg Basin has become the trendiest new stop. And one of the favourite destinations within our spectacular mountain fringed valley is the Lourensford Market.

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.

Our signature Friday night Twilight Market has become the local, after-work hangout where friends and family come together to ease into the weekend. Take a stroll down our Fairy Light Lane, visit your favourite vendors and grab a seat to enjoy the ultimate night-market experience! The Twilight Market is open every Friday evening from 17h00 – 21h00 with live music by celebrated Cape Town artists and DJs.

I thought the Lourensford Market was very very beautiful. It is most definitely one of the markets with the best vibe, music and general atmosphere. I would highly recommend anyone who hasn’t had the opportunity to see it to go and enjoy as much as I did!!

I fell in love with the Lourensford Market the first time I visited it. I love that it is close to where I live and that I feel part of the community at the market. I love the beautiful surroundings, the attention to detail and how clean the market it. And those plum blossoms in the orchards… what’s not to love?

Corlie’s Pasta is our local market Italian food stall. Corlie & Attie serve fresh pasta, gnocchi and ravioli dishes, piadini with fillings from fillet steak to vegetarian and bottled pasta sauces and pestos. Corlie grew up watching her mother cook and helping her in the kitchen. Later on in life she developed a great love for Italian food and after an initial trial run to sell dried pasta at another market she realised that cooked fresh pasta will be the way forward. And as for Attie, it also started in his mother’s kitchen and then Corlie came along and inspired him with her love for Italian food. Their most popular item at the market is their Creamy Bacon and Mushroom Pasta. Sounds delicious!

It was 2013 and whilst working for a national coffee company, I realised there was a huge demand for good coffee at events, I left after 10years in the field and started MBB.
Why Lourensford Market? Besides the fact that it’s situated on one of the most picturesque wine farms in the country, owned and operated by The Aleit Group, whilst vibey and festive, this market is also quaint and intimate where some of the bigger markets out there can get a little crowded.
