Local produce in Bredasdorp
One of the many perks of living or visiting a small, mountain town is the abundance of fresh-from-the-farm local produce. Bredasdorp businesses give consumers direct access to the fruits, vegetables and meat produced from the neighbouring micro and major farms here. Catering to the residential market first, customers can find fresh ingredients, straight from the source and which is also supports local entrepreneurs and their employees.
When you live in a big city, finding local produce that hasn’t travelled hundreds of kilometres or gone through a stringent packaging process is difficult. These food and beverage outlets in Bredasdorp are not just serving their communities but also proving that heavily processed or mass-produced goods simply cannot compare to the freshness or organic, local ingredients.
Bredasdorp local produce is sourced from the thriving Cape Agulhas region in the Overberg, Western Cape. This area is made up of several seaside and inland towns, namely Agulhas, Elim, Napier, Struisbaai and Arniston. Each of these destinations entice thousands of tourists each year to visit a wide range of geographical and historical attractions or to take part in events. Additionally, many visitors simply come here throughout the year to get away from chaotic cities, with friends, family or even alone.
When you visit towns in Cape Agulhas, you’ll quickly notice that these are not places you can see in a day, so why not make a holiday out of your road trip. There’s a host of accommodation available here, from country houses and quirky hotels to B&B’s and self-catering units. And, to heighten your trip even further, the access to fresh local produce is incomparable. Eating at restaurants or visiting the local produce stores to cook your own meals is all part of this incredible and flavourful town.
Situated on the R316 via the N2 highway, Bredasdorp is approximately 187kms from Cape Town CBD. This means, those who enjoy longer road trips, filled with carpool karaoke, impromptu farm stalls and small towns will relish in this opportunity. Travelling over historic mountain passes, through canola fields, wind farms and wheat plantations, whether you’re a passenger or the driver, it’s easy to see that getting there is half of the fun.
People that live outside of the Western Cape, that are looking to visit Bredasdorp can simply fly into Cape Town International Airport and hire a car, catch a lift with a friend or utilise one of the major bus liners or independent transport operators, that include Bredasdorp as one of their stops.
