So you’re on leave for the first time in ages and there’s so much you want to do. But one thing you don’t feel like doing is Christmas shopping in an overcrowded mall with screaming kids and a grumpy spouse.
Luckily, you can stock up on gifts at some amazing Christmas markets throughout the month of December. Here are a few fantastic options.
This quaint, rustic market on the West Coast is the perfect stop on a relaxed drive up the West Coast. Camphill Village have their own organic produce on sale, including fruit, vegetables, homemade breads, rusks and biscuits, plus other delicious organic food stalls.
When: December 6, 10h00 to 14h00
Where: Camphill Village, West Coast, Klein Dassenberg Rd, Cape Town
After only two successful monthly markets, the I Love Big Bay evening market has the potential to become one of the West Coast’s top market options. It takes place right on Big Bay beach, where visitors can enjoy an epic sunset, several food trucks, over 10 options for dinner, fashion, craft and goods traders, plus great coffee, cold brews, two wine bars and craft beer on tap.
When: the last Wednesday of every month, 16h00 to 21h00
Where: The Big Bay Lifesaving Club, Big Bay, Bloubergstrand
This year’s Eden on the Bay market will showcase the best of local arts and crafts, with food provided by Eden’s own restaurants. Why not make a day of it with the family? Once you’re done browsing the variety of stalls, enjoy ice cold sun downers at one of the restaurants on the strip or relax on the rolling lawns. Sound good? See below for more info.
When: December 16-30, 10h00 to 17h00 daily
Where: The Courtyard, Eden on the Bay Mall, Big Bay, Bloubergstrand
