A wonderful food market for a lazy Sunday. You can order all kinds of food from the area and/or enjoy the art and clothing stalls. Find yourself a table and a beer or a glass of wine and enjoy…

Lovely Sunday market with a variety of stalls and produce. Rather disinterested wine tasting assistant who didn't even bother to look up from her paperwork / computer screen when talking to us. We literally had to drag information out of her. When asked which red wine she could recommend, the said the Cabriolet. When I asked her what their most... More

After a long day sitting in a conference, our group took late afternoon visit to Blaauwkippen. We opted for the wine and chocolate tasting which was very well set out and presented. Our young host was a confident and passionate speaker who clearly enjoys his work and the subject of wine and wine making. The tasting room is big, expansive... More

Me and my girlfriend did our own wine route and this was one of the best wine farms we visited. The quality of wine was really good.

We have supported Blaauklippen markets since we first discovered them one Sunday morning 3 years ago. It was a smallish affair then and has expanded as more visitors have come to enjoy the lovely setting under HUGE fig trees. The food stalls are good/very good with the Mexican and Lebanese our favourites. The historical stables house stalls with chutneys, cheese... More

We visited on a Sunday morning and were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely market, with loads of stalls, delicious foods and other goodies. The setting is lovely, you're welcome to find a shady spot under an old oak tree and enjoy a picnic (they ask you nicely not to bring your own food and drinks), but there is more... More

Not all wine tasting places are open on Sundays, Blaauwklippen is one of those which is open and during the summer, has a small market/live music - it also has a small petting area with goats and a carriage museum. When we visited, there were a lot of families (many locals) many with picnics under the shade of the trees... More

We visited on a Sunday. Interesting enough family market with a variety of food and home-grown beer to boot. Theres's some Dutch food (bitterballen etc) lovely home made jams, sauces, chillies and spreads that are delectable. Live music, quite entertaining, and things to do for the kids. But do not do the wine tasting on a Sunday - it is... More

The Sunday market runs from 10 until 3. A fantastic selection of stalls selling everything from curios through arts and crafts to food, not forgetting the estates wines! A great relaxed atmosphere and the choice of cooked foods is awesome. Should be on every tourists' itinerary in the Stellenbosch area, come rain or shine.

After doing some tourist things in the area (I live in the area) I took the family to Blaauwklippen Restaurant for lunch. The menu was limited but the food was OK, I think over priced, however the service was lousy and I had to remind the waiter to bring my coffee, the bread the salad dressing and even the bill....
