Best West Coast Farm Stalls

West Coast

There are few things better than a good, South African farm stall (or ‘padstal’ as they’re locally called). Found in many local small towns and alongside main roads, these country gems are often brimming with delectable eats, homemade preserves and other bottled goods, freshly baked delicacies and an assortment of gifts and other knick-knacks.

In fact, farm stalls are a delight; perfect for the roadside pitstop, quick bite or a keepsake find.

In this post, we share some of the Western Cape’s best West Coast farm stalls to enjoy:

Vygevallei Farmstall

Situated next to a Puma petrol station, Vygevallei Farmstall makes for a convenient pitstop along the West Coast’s R27.
This charming, quirky farm stall offers the best, freshest roosterkoek and other eats, as well as some interesting locally made products.
