Food with a story


At the historic Oude Libertas estate in Stellenbosch and the Willowbridge Life style centre in Tygervalley the Slow Market founded in 2008 is the authentic Slow Food market. Surrounded by vineyards and oak trees in Stellenbosch the Slow Market is a revival of the public marketplace where you can buy food which is grown, raised harvested and transformed by our producers. Our market features over 100 specialty suppliers creating a weekly platform for local farmers, grocers, artisan bakers, organic merchants, fine food purveyors , butchers ,artisan crafts, local fashion , craft beers and estate wines.

We support micro businesses to grow and thrive in an alternative retail environment. Founded by medical doctor and entrepreneur Gail Blake the market is part of a global Slow Food movement promoting foods which are clean, good and fair.



Oude Libertas offers you a collection of artistic, theatre and lifestyle experiences as well as a vital insight into community and environmental development initiatives.

Host your tailor made party, wedding, event, business meeting or conference by choosing a venue from our wide range of in and outdoor facilities.

Furthermore, it is the home of the Distell Foundation, an umbrella body for Distell’s corporate social investment activities. Distell invests in a few key areas: arts & culture; education and skills development linked to job creation.

With an open-air amphitheatre, coffee, wine & tapas bar, art gallery, slow market on Saturdays, yoga classes, kiddie activities, special wine tastings, film screenings and picnics on offer – there is something interesting for everyone to enjoy.

We hope to welcome you to our unique spot in the winelands of Stellenbosch soon! For the Amphitheatre programme see: amphitheatre/events
