A visit to Back-Area-Gardens Deli

Saturday, 17 March 2018 at 11h00
U1 Oude Molen Eco Village, 80 Alexandra Road, Pinelands 


You’re invited to join us on a visit to do your shopping away from the madness of the malls, and one-stop shopping of the supermarkets. You’ll be able to sit in the garden, and have delicious tea, coffee and eats as well. Margot Neser will chat to us about the produce she grows and sources from other producers in the Western Cape.


There is no charge for the visit, but please let us know if you’d like to join us, so that Margo can organise enough eats and seats for refreshments. Payment for these will be for your own account.

Please email if you’re able to join us.

If you’re unable to join us on the 17 March 2018, do go this hidden gem to do your shopping on another day:

Shop Hours
Mondays: Closed; Tuesdays: Closed
Wednesdays: 1pm – 6pm
Thursdays: 10am – 6pm Fridays: 10am – 6pm
Saturdays: 10am – 2pm

Back Area Gardens was started in 2009 by Margot Neser and her trusty assistant David Koko.

Margot says “We are organic vegetable micro- farmers situated in Oude Molen Eco Village, Pinelands. Our intention is simple: to bring fresh organic food to the suburbs as conveniently as possible. Most of our vegetables and herbs are grown organically right here at Oude Molen, and the rest of our organic produce is brought to you from small independent farmers from around the Western Cape. This ranges from organic dairy products, flour, free range poultry, fresh, pasture- reared meats, coffee and teas to a variety of condiments“.

For more details go to:



• Turn into Alexander Road from the traffic light at the M52/ Raapenberg Road /leading to Pinelands – Forest Drive.
• Go past the Vincent Palottii hospital.
• The entrance to the Eco Village is the first turning to the left after the hospital.
• Once in the village, turn left, and follow signposts to the Deli.
• There’s a parking area close to the Deli.
