My Place Gourmet Group is the young company behind two popular food stalls at the vibrant Root 44 market between Stellenbosch and Somerset West.

The business has contributed to the success of the weekend market by catering for Cape Town's love of good food and delicious drinks.

"Sovlaking Delicious" (which serves Souvlaki food) and "The Mussel Monger & Oyster Bar" food stalls always serve every dish with drive and enthusiasm, explains Nominator, Mart-Mari.


Mart-Mari believes the gourmet group should be recognised for its excellent service and friendly staff who stand out in a sea of other food traders and stands.

Business founder Kyle Dods says My Place Gourmet Group has committed itself to mastering cuisines for each individual food stall.

We create product-specific food stalls and it allows us to specialise and do one thing very well.

The 17-month-old company has grown to making significant monthly turnover and employs at least 13 staff members.
