Farm stalls in Napier
Napier is a welcoming little village in the middle of the Overberg and resting at the foot of the Soetmuisberg. And if you’re a fan of delicious, farm-fresh produce and organic foods, then you’ll love this charming town and its incredible farm stall culture. These establishments in the Overberg offer renowned baked foods that are a hit with the whole family! You can enjoy everything from piping hot loaves of bread to a variety of tasty pies featuring exotic flavours like venison or curry.
Some of the farm stalls in and around the village of Napier even go beyond their culinary expertise and provide pet and family friendly accommodation. You’ll be able to enjoy the luxury of home-style lunches and cosy interiors with seasonal dishes and menus that really reflect the region’s agricultural heritage. If you’re stopping in at a farm stall, look around for a blackboard menu with the daily specials. These are guaranteed to be fresh and delicious and usually range from varieties of quiche to spicy lamb or oxtail curry and even soul food like home-made soup.
You can enjoy culinary treats and warm, friendly service while relaxing under vine-covered porches. These verandas allow you to take in the country atmosphere and relax while dining on delicious straight-from-the-oven cuisine. Feel free to explore the wide range of treats on offer and don’t be shy about pairing them with local wines. If you’re a fan of Overberg vineyards you can also stock up on these estate wines at almost any farm stall at great value. You can also savour decadent cakes, scones, preserves and deli items which are usually well-priced due to short supply chains on ingredients from the surrounding farmlands.
Napier’s community is renowned for being friendly and welcoming with many artists and artisans who have moved here for a more peaceful life than the urban centres provide. This has definitely influenced the style and décor of many farm stalls in this region. Don’t be surprised to find yourself surrounded by vintage bridles dangling from the roof or even a real potbelly stove in the middle of the room as you enjoy your wholesome country meal.
Some of the Napier farm stalls have also begun to offer live music and drinks in the evenings, especially over weekends. Not only can you enjoy hearty country fares but you can also be entertained by soft jazz classics. During the mornings and afternoons there are farm stalls that also provide playgrounds and even hula hoops for kids to keep them busy and give parents a bit of a breather to enjoy the countryside. At the end of the day, if you love food and find yourself in Napier, don’t miss the opportunity to experience these amazing establishments!
