'Oude Libertas' market Is for me simply the best ! The atmosphere is fabulous, so relaxing. The array of food on offer is delicious. From arts & crafts, clothing, champagne & oysters, sushi & foods to sample from around the world. It's a real party atmosphere. Go early and have breakfast. You won't be dissapointed !!!

We visited Oude Libertas Amphitheatre for one of their summer sunday night concerts and saw Sipho Mabuse. We had a fantastic night and next time we're back in cape town would certainly visit again for one of their events.

Not the metropolitan opera, but quality musicians in a lovely setting. They have a varied program here and it is definitely worth spending an evening while in Stellenbosch

We went to Oude Libertas for the New Year's Eve picnic and concert. Initially picnicking on the lawn, we then went on into the theatre. The performance of the band was very enjoyable and we had a great time. We also liked that patrons were given a free glass of sparkling wine at midnight and that everyone toasted with each other.

Very Good Food & Craft Market on Saturdays, with a variety of wines available. Visited the Somerset West Craft market first and then went to Oude Libertas for lunch.If you are in the area it is great fun and good value.
