Festive Ideas Market at Simondium

Kick-start your Christmas shopping with this yearly gift market in the Cape Winelands


Looking for a perfect and unique Christmas present for that someone special or that one friend who has everything? Well, we’ve got just the thing for you. Stock up on ideas, gifts and deli delights at the annual Festive Ideas Market at the Simondium Country Lodge in the heart of the Cape Winelands from Wednesday, 29 October to Sunday, 2 November 2014.

A shopaholic’s utopia, this retail extravaganza features a vast collection of opulent gifts and décor at affordable prices, and with Christmas around the corner, it’s the perfect place to kick off your holiday shopping.

With more than a 100 exclusive supplier and exhibitor stalls to peruse, visitors will be no doubt be spoilt for choice. From home and garden décor to clothing and linen products, this pre-Christmas market offers attendees an eclectic mix of goodies and gifts.

The deli will be stocked to the brim with mouth-watering homemade goodies, like artisan lollies, fruit-infused wines, hand-crafted toffees, specialty teas and coffees as well as freshly baked breads and confectionery. Not forgetting the little ones, kids will be kept busy with supervised entertainment and activities.

Hosted at the Simondium Country Lodge located in the heart of the Cape Winelands – between Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl – the scenic spot is the perfect place to relax, have a bite to eat and enjoy a glass (or three) of vino.

Entry to the market costs a mere R30p/p and is payable at door on the day. Kiddies younger than 13 years of age get in for free.
