Making your Way through the Markets in the Cape

The Western Cape (and especially the Overberg) is jam packed with incredible markets that vary from traditional crafts to musical instruments. In some markets you’ll find a hidden gem trapped under a heap of old magazines or that door handle you’ve been looking for but no one makes it anymore. From Cape Town to De Kelders, there are ample opportunities to haggle, rummage and relax as you walk along the paths of a market, never knowing what you might find.

Cape Town Green Market Square

This market may traditionally cater for the souvenir and tourist market, but you will often find uniquely South African crafts along the cobbled stone square. You will hear the music vibrating against the Art Deco buildings and the elaborately decorated facade of the Market House.

Somerset West Country Craft Market

If you want a fun day out and looking for exquisite hand-crafted accessories, clothing, beadwork, woodwork (and so much more), then head to the Country Craft Market in Somerset West on your way to De Kelders. They have activities for the kids, a myriad of stalls dedicated to all types of hand-crafted goods. There is no doubt that you will find something to fall in love with and not be able to live without.

Elgin Valley Market

As you head through the Overberg, closer to your accommodation in De Kelders, you should stop off at the Peregrine Farm Stall where there is a weekly market. The market showcases art, food products, curios and fresh fare. The food court is especially fantastic as it houses deli products, a variety of wines, desserts, light meals and loads more.

Hermanuspietersfontein Market

You may be a hop and a skip away from 65onCliff as you head through Hermanus but make sure to stop off at the market held every Saturday at the Hermanuspietersfontein Wine Cellars. They hold a weekly food and wine market where tastings are free and the food is unforgettable.

We’ve given you the tip of the iceberg, there are heaps more markets to experience and we will always be your home away from home as your accommodation in De Kelders. Our team (but it’s more like a family) are passionate about their work and making sure our guests have a wonderfully memorable stay.
