"Affie plaas" is a colloquial Afrikaans term that is used to refer to goods that come directly from the farm. This South African farm stall is a proudly Afrikaans establishment that is situated on the western edge of the Western Cape town of Robertson.

Robertson and its valley are known for their contribution to the wine and rose industries, and are in the heart of the Route 62 winelands. It was established in 1853 and is brimming with history and culture. As such, it is one of the Western Cape’s gems, and the perfect locale for a traditional farm stall like Affie Plaas.

This farm stall was established almost 30 years ago, when it began as one man selling apricots on the side of the road. Since then, it has blossomed into the well-loved institution that it is today. Local goods that can be found on its shelves include waterblommetjies, fresh farm breads, pies, traditional desserts, homemade rusks, pickles, jams, quail eggs, chocolate salami and dried fruits. For those who are looking for something different while not negotiating on their responsible tourism standards, the organic jams and locally-produced organic wines are a must to try.

While shoppers are perusing the many tasty delights of Affie Plaas, traditional Afrikaans music (“boeremusiek”) completes the experience. Local farmers and crafters supply much of the produce being sold at the stall, which means that it is fresh, original, and uplifts the local community.

De Oude Kombuis is the restaurant next door, and offers visitors delicious meals as they journey through the Western Cape Province. There is a children’s play area here, and little ones can play safely as their parents enjoy great flavours. Sunday lunch, usually accompanied by live music, is a must for those passing through or staying in Robertson. De Oude Kombuis is closed on Saturdays.
