Festive Ideas Market at Simondium Country Lodge

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 just outside Franschhoek from Wednesday, 2 to Sunday, 6 November 2016.

A shopaholic’s utopia, this retail extravaganza features a vast collection of opulent gifts and décor at affordable prices, and with Christmas approaching fast, 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 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 treats, like artisan lollies, fruit-infused wines, hand-crafted toffees, specialty teas and coffees as well as freshly baked breads and confectionery.

Hosted at the Simondium Country Lodge located in the heart of the Cape Winelands – along the R45 between Franschhoek and Paarl – the scenic spot is the perfect place to relax, have a bite to eat and enjoy a glass (or three) of vino in between a spot of shopping.


Entry to the market costs a mere R30p/p and is payable at door on the day. Children younger than 18 years old get in for free. For more information, you can phone +27 (0)21 874 1046 or visit
