A newcomer to the market, Vergenoegd opened on the 3rd September 2016. Every Saturday thereafter, come rain or sunshine, Vergenoegd Estate is hosting what is set to be one of the most popular markets in Stellenbosch. The estate’s open stretch of land allows for ample parking and the market site ideal for the whole family to relax and enjoy a day in the country. Alongside the market are exciting events on offer. Saturday mornings kick off at 9am with the Vergenoegd family breakfast run or walk. A light bite will be available to order after the run whilst relaxing and enjoying the Duck Parade at 10am (2 additional parades at 12.30pm and 3.30pm).
The estate’s Runner Ducks, a 1000-strong flock of working ducks have become something of a Stellenbosch Wine Route “must see”. These feathery friends form part of the workforce at Vergenoegd and after their morning parade they head off into the vineyards to eat bugs and pests, massively reducing the estate’s requirements for pesticides.
When: Every Saturday from 10am to 4pm
