When you love a relaxed place on the weekend as much as we do, you must pay The Freedom Weekend Market in Paarl a visit very soon! It’s a small market, but with everything you and the kids need for a fun day out.
When you enter the building, you will be greeted by various farm stalls and shops that sell anything from plants, beauty products, home decor, toys, books and food. In the middle of the market is the drink’s bar where you can order your beer, wine and soft drinks.
In a separate area, you will find different food options ranging from Sushi to burgers, schwarma and pizzas. On a windy or cool day, you can grab a seat inside. But on those fabulous Paarl summer days, you want to make use of the chilled outdoor area with plenty of seating possibilities for the visitors.
The kids can play in the cute dedicated play area right next to the seating area where you can always keep an eye on them. In the meantime, you can enjoy stunning views and good live music.
As a special treat, you can even take the kids on a tractor ride. It’s R30 per person and takes about 15 minutes. Just keep in mind that this activity is cash only and there is no ATM at the market. So plan ahead and bring along some cash if you want to go on a tractor ride.
You can easily spend a couple of hours at the market thrifting away, eating lunch, listening to great music and watching the kiddos play! Dogs are also welcome at this beautiful market!
We spent an entire afternoon at the market and the kids loved it. We had pizzas, burgers and chips and of course some ice cream as dessert. The kids were pretty much busy on the playground the entire day until we took them on the tractor ride. They spotted baboons, the vineyard and other things on the ride and it was a great experience and special treat on that day.
The live music on the day of our visit was beyond amazing and we got caught in the relaxed weekend vibes with our beer and wine in the afternoon.
