De Rust Farmers Market


De Rust Farmers Market – Saturday 3rd March


We are now going into our sixth month with our Farmers Market in De Rust. The gardens at Housemartin Guest Lodge and The Plough Restaurant have proved to be an idyllic venue.

Yep, the next De Rust Farmers Market will take place on Saturday 3rd March.

The venue is as always the gardens of the Housemartin Guest Lodge and The Plough Restaurant in Schoeman Street, De Rust.

The market is from 08:00 until around 13:00. Refreshments are available from the Plough Restaurant and include coffee, tea, cold drinks, pizza, breakfast and light snacks like toasted sandwiches etc.

Come and join us for a relaxing morning; meet some of our local yokels and of course stock up on fresh farm produce and gifts.

Should you want to bring goodies to sell, there is no charge for a table and you keep all the profits. Great deal! Candy is not doing it for the money but for the community and the vendors.

Looks like the weather man is also going to be kind to us… if he gets it right :-)

The De Rust Farmers Market is kicking off 2012 with what promises to be another great selection of products. We are branching out into other products as well. Many people ask for arts and crafts and so we are going to oblige and give them what they want.

From 08:00 on Saturday 4th February there will be fresh farm produce, Bill Martin’s absolutely divine seed loaf (for which he has won an international award), Trix Peel will be there with her hand knitted winter goodies (jerseys, scarves, beanies and bed socks, mittens). Kathryn will be manning her stall selling delicious sauces: Avocado and Basil Salad dressing, Portuguese Peri Peri, Garlic relish and the all-time favourite – Onion Marmalade.

Looking for Christmas gifts then come and browse around at the market. You will find plants, honey, delicious fresh produce, home-made goodies and much more. All proudly – De Rust. Ok we have invited some neighbours as well but we are proud to have them join us.

Candy is working hard to bring in new partners and a greater variety of goods. This coming Saturday there will once again be something new. The farmers’ wives have also been busy and will be bringing along some of their own handy work like

  • hand painted cushions

  • Christmas Gifts
  • home made meat pies and sausage rolls

Diana will be here once again with her delicious vegetable curry!

See you in De Rust on Saturday morning in the gardens at Housemartin.


P.S. While you are in De Rust why not browse around our interesting gift shops and also visit the beautiful waterfall in Meiringspoort. There is a good reason why we are known as the Jewel of the Klein Karoo. Visit us and find out.

FARMERS MARKET – DE RUST – Saturday 1st October

What a great beginning to our Farmers Market in De Rust.

We had a good turnout of locals with a wide variety of produce for sale. The many people who came were spoiled for choice and the result… satisfied buyers and sellers. A real win win situation. The buyers also included a group of overseas tourists who had spent the night in the luxurious accommodation at Housemartin Guest Lodge.

The market even drew people from our neighbouring towns and from the coast. It was a good start to what is going to become a popular monthly Farmers Market in De Rust.

If you would like to take part and bring your produce to the market then please contact me for details at the numbers below.

We look forward to seeing you at our next Farmers Market on the 5th November.

Kindest regards,
