Keep it fresh and local

Support local and buy fresh seasonal ingredients, meet the people producing your food, and experience the community’s true culture.

Food brings us together and it reminds us of all the things we have to be thankful for. We love good food. Not just natural and organic food, but the food that’s so much a part of our fondest memories. The good stuff.

Enjoying local foods is a must during your holiday in Plett. Local farmers, bakers, cheesemakers and artisans showcase their rich agricultural offering throughout town. So, get ready to head out and forage for your favourites.

The Wednesday Market at Old Nick Village is an excellent excuse to pop out for a midweek experience. With an array of locally grown and homemade foods on offer, the vendors ply their trade with happy hearts and a cheerful disposition. Always worth a visit.

The Saturday Harkerville Market is the big brother of markets in the Plett area. Choosing from a wide selection of fresh produce, mouth-watering breakfasts and other treats, all the while meeting up with familiar faces for that important community catch up. Start your weekend with their Bundu Breakfast and finish your shop with a tasty frozen fruit delight.

On Main Street, Clare’s Deli boasts free range eats and ready meals for those tired and weary shoppers. With a healthy local following, breakfast and lunch are a happy affair. A day at the beach would not be complete without a sweet treat and at Clare’s, the sweet tooth is spoilt for choice. A baker par excellence, Clare has filled this relaxing space from ceiling to counter with cakes, pastries, breads and other goodies.

At Bocca Dolce, vegan cuisine is taken to the next level. The fact that just about every ingredient is grown on this beautiful farm is an added bonus. From sweet to savoury to their cheeky mushroom biltong, the food is interesting and delicious. Well worth a visit!

The Heath is open every day and is home to The Cheeseman. He has a permanent stand where visitors can sample and buy the most delicious handmade cheese and preserves. If you love plants, they are also home to the most amazing nursery with some interesting and rare finds.

On your way to out of Plett towards Keurbooms, Thyme & Again Farm Stall is an oasis of fabulous snacks, wine, preserves, baked goods, etc. to ensure a successful road trip. Mosey around and you’ll be very pleased with what you find.

A little further down the drag is Bread & Brew. Their homemade pies take the cake, if you’ll excuse the pun. People come from far and wide to wrap their gnashers around these incredibly tasty pockets of sunshine.

If you are ready for a farm stall flight of fancy, don’t miss Nature’s Way Farm Stall. Delicious farm fair and dairy, plus of course all the little extras that make a farm stall rock, are found in abundance.

Yes folks, market life in Plett is alive and well and makes for exciting shopping!
