Franschhoek Wine Valley

The Market at Val de Vie

The Market at Val de Vie makes for the perfect day-trip for the entire family 

Val de Vie Estate welcomes you to join them for an exciting day out in the exquisite Paarl-Franschhoek Valley at their monthly Sunday market. Each market will offer a variety of unique homemade fare sold from food trucks and vendors, as well as fun activities for children and a sports event for anyone to take part in. Sports events include a cross country and family fun run, sponsored by Optimum, the Val de Vie Triathlon and the much anticipated Bridge House Mile, sponsored by Standard Bank. In true Val de Vie style, you can watch a thrilling game of polo while sipping on a crisp glass of the estate’s superior wine and relaxing to live music from some of South Africa’s most loved artists. Held on the Polo Pavilion’s terrace, the Market at Val de Vie has something for everyone to enjoy.
