Good food, delicious drinks, lively tunes and brilliant company - we at Root 44 know South Africans enjoy nothing more. That’s precisely why we’ve created the perfect all-weather setting where you, friends and family can come together rain or shine.
We’re a market with a difference: housed in sturdy, super cosy Downings marquees (which means rain is never an issue), and surrounded by gorgeous vineyards and trees, we offer funky live entertainment, craft and homeware stalls perfect for leisurely browsing, and an awesome selection of edible and drinkable treats.
Our traders’ vast range of hand-picked antiques, gorgeous children’s clothing, funky t-shirts, jewellery, homeware, leather goods and various other arts and crafts means we offer you retail therapy par excellence. Audacia wines and sumptuous craft beers will put a smile on the face of oenophiles and beer aficionados alike. Decadent sweet treats, wood-fired pizza's, traditional roosterkoek and biltong, healthy salads and sandwiches, spicy curries and other goodies galore will satisfy any tummy rumblings you incur during your ramblings! Our range of ‘take-home’ products is also excellent, with superb olive oils, spreads, home baked breads, cured and smoked charcuterie products and a selection of fresh, organic fresh produce for sale.
Trees SA have provided the venue with an abundance of beautiful shady trees and there is ample parking with car guards on hand.
For the little people we have non-stop entertainment with our natural wood play park and lawn area. While the kids play enjoy a glass of local wine or ice-cold soft drink at our vibrant Blue Moon Bar. There’s much to love about Root 44, in fact we’re quite positive you’ll ‘Smaak it at this market’.
Find us opposite the giant strawberry along the R44 between Somerset West and Stellenbosch. If there’s been a spot of rain, just pull on those wellies and head on out!
