The Constantia Valley area brings you a unique outdoor market where locals can shop for fantastic fresh produce, savour a farm-style breakfast, and best of all - activities for the little people. Porter Estate Produce Market was born from the hearts and minds of the restauranteurs and chefs that brought you both the timeless Jonkershuis on Groot Constantia and the multi award winning Societi Bistro, V&A Waterfront.
It's wonderful to be able to touch, taste, smell and select your favourite produce directly from the source. "Our aim was to find vendors who have unique produce to offer", says Stephen Coetzee, market manager. "Most of the fresh goods available here are not available to us in our supermarkets". The market is professionally organized and customer friendly, it is community driven and provides an opportunity for the students at the Chrysalis Academy to gain valuable life and work experience.
For more information call 082 823 4121. A database of frequent market goers will be created, and the market's operating status, due to weather permission, will be delivered straight to your cellphone.
