The most famous farm stall in Paternoster likes to keep things local, with almost all the jams, preserves and bakes sourced from up and down the West Coast: piquant mustards come from Piketberg, rusks from nearby Aurora and jams from windswept Dwarskersbos. The citron jam is a rarity worth stocking up on, and the traditional snoeksout is the perfect gift for seafood-loving friends. Apart from traditional treats, they also stock veldskoene from Wuperthal, enamelware, vintage furniture, original art and bric-n-brac. 
The 'Paternoster se Padstal' is, as the name suggests, set just off the main road of Paternoster on the Cape West Coast. Although not as big as Die Winkel op Paternoster which is located on the opposite side of the road, this little shop sells anything from T-shirts to fudge, to shell mobiles, jars of marinated mussels and finally dried fish!

The unusual smell of dried fish, known in these parts as ‘bokkom’ takes a bit of getting used to, but don’t let that stop you from venturing in to Paternoster se Padstal, even if it is only for a few minutes. Please take note of the sign at the front door that warns you to ‘Beware of the cat’ - the innocent looking feline dozing in the sun is a most ferocious guard!
Supermarket, Deli, Bakery also stock fresh fruit, vegetables and meat. Petrol station with ULP and Diesel. Post Office.
They have a large collection of Shells and Shell Curio.
The variety includes wind chimes, shell curtains, shell jewelry, key rings, magnets, door hangers, sea stars and rare shells.
