Potters Market Rondebosch is one of the biggest gatherings of potters in the Western Cape, featuring over 100 potters, ceramicists and sculptors. Held twice a year on the second-last Saturday of March and November, and hosted by Ceramics Southern Africa Western Cape, this dazzling display of exquisite earthenware is happening at Rondebosch Park 18 November 2017 from 7am to 4pm.
Apart from giving us an excuse to enjoy some alfresco retail therapy, what we love about the Potters Market is that you’re buying directly from source, which means that you don’t pay inflated retail prices. Food and refreshment stalls are dotted around the park, and pooches are welcome. We suggest getting there early to avoid the crowds.
