Spend a lazy sunday at a neighbourhood market

If you are in the Magoebaskloof area, a ‘Must-do’ is the neighbourhood market at Mina’s.  Fresh farm produce, organic cheeses, craft beers, gourmet burgers, tapas, flowers and herbs are all on offer at this charming venue on a medicinal herb farm.  Mina’s is always packed with locals and visitors coming to enjoy the delicious home-made fare at long trestle tables under ancient trees or take a picnic down to the Broederstroom River at the bottom of the farm.  The original farmhouse, where stallholders sell their delicious treats, has been transformed into a funky, arty venue with white-washed walls, rustic decor and a big fireplace.  Kids play outside on the rope swings or under the Imagination Tree while their parents relax with friends and try out the homebrews and estate wines.  The laid-back rhythm of the day heats up when the Jazz band starts playing their soulful tunes and you can dance the afternoon away in this tranquil, scenic setting.

Enjoy the mountain atmosphere, stay over at Zwakala River Retreat, Kurisa Moya Nature Lodge, Sequoia Gardens or Coral Tree Campsite.
