Spend Summer Sundays at the Kirstenbosch Craft and Food Market 2018

Spend Summer Sundays at the Kirstenbosch Craft and Food Market 2018

Fresh air, mountain views and loads of stuff to eat, drink and buy make this monthly market a win.

On the last Sunday of every month (from October through to May), the Kirstenbosch Craft and Food markets are a wonderful way to enjoy the warm weather while exploring the nearly 300 stalls. Featuring unique and handmade crafts, jewellery, clothing, leather goods, soaps, candles, aromatherapy products, art, garden furniture, pottery, and much more, there’s bound to be something that tickles your fancy.

Naturally, there’ll also be stalls selling tasty food, as well as a bar, where you’ll be able to purchase craft beer and wine. Entertainment comes courtesy of a top-brass jazz band lead by UCT Professor Mike Campbell, who sometimes brings along a celebrity musician or two. Plus, there’ll be pony rides and other kids’ activities, making it the perfect place for a leisurely Sunday afternoon with the whole family.

Diarise these dates for the upcoming Kirstenbosch craft and food markets:

    We had a great time at this market on Sunday 25th March. We bought lunch at a stall selling a choice of cooked chicken or lamb + an assortment of veggies. We chose chicken & brought it home to eat & it was delicious. We were a family of 7 but one did not have this meal. All 6 who had the meal had nausea & diarrhea by Monday lasting 2 days. Although we enjoyed the market, we are unlikely to purchase a pre-
    cooked meal there again. Vendors need to take care with cooked food.

    Good day,

    I’d love to work at these markets? Any ideas how I can get the word out to the stall owners that I am available. I am employed during the week, but seeking a second job over weekends. Love working with people, love the outdoors, and very hard working.
