Ho Ho Ho…off to Gabriëlskloof young and old should go, when this prominent wine estate, perched high on the outskirts of Bot River in the Overberg, dons its festive bells and whistles for the popular Favourite Things Market on 12 and 13 December 2014.
Celebrating its fifth year of all things local, lekker and lavish, the Favourite Thing Market offers a ‘happy place’ for enthusiasts to swap the crowded mall for a carefree day out in the countryside, whilst ticking off those Christmas shopping lists with glee.
With loads of beautiful stalls enticing with real, authentic products, interesting exhibitors and locals to mingle with, friends and family are invited to kick off the shoes and find a ‘kuier’ spot on the lawn, far away from the maddening end of year rush.
Think vintage finds; gorgeous kiddies clothing; décor treasures; trendy accessories; flowers and indigenous fynbos wreathes; ceramic masterpieces; pamper products; artisanal cheeses, pesto’s and chocolates; craft beers, and of course a glass or two of Gabriëlskloof wines.
“Whether it lands up in or under the tree, or on your table during your special Christmas and New Year’s feasts, there is something for each and every taste at our market. If you like handmade, homemade, delicious, fresh and beautiful things, then you will love what we have in store for you this year,” shares Nicolene Finlayson, the mastermind behind this annual artistic celebration.
Delicious taste sensations to savour on the day include gourmet burgers, sushi, sumptuous mushrooms on sticks, fresh oysters, a beautiful big-pan paella and authentic gazpacho, guaranteed to perk up the palate and the mood. Live music will add to a colourful, creative atmosphere whilst the little ones will be kept busy in the “chapel”, where pews are replaced with a jumping castle and kids can run and play under the watchful eyes of professional childminders.
The 2014 Gabriëlskloof Favourite Things Market is your ticket to meet more than 30 passionate producers who will make, bake, curate, craft, sew and share their wares for you to stock up in style.
The merriment kicks off on Friday, 12 December, at 5pm till 9pm whilst all the magic will be repeated on Saturday, 13 December, from 11am until 9pm.
