Christmas Shopping at the Gardens Shopping Centre

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Please note: we're happy to note that the market is extending it's dates until Sunday, 3 December!

Get the (dreaded) Christmas shopping done in one venue! It might sound too good to be true, but you’re in luck because we know of a place where you can do just that. From Tuesday, 28 November to Sunday, 3 December 2017 Gardens Shopping Centre is putting on a festive market to end them all.

Patrons will be treated to the unique opportunity of browsing the wares of the resident tenants in a fun and interactive market format. Participating stores will set up stalls throughout the centre, and shoppers can browse and wander – and buy – all they want. All we know is that this sounds like a great way to get ticks next to the names on your to-buy-for list.

Grab your significant other something sweet from Chocolate by Tomes, or treat your furry bestie to something cute or edible from Absolute Pets. For the foodie in your life, head to Le Creuset or the French Market. For the adventurer, browse the Cape Union Mart stall for the ultimate gadget or opt for something outdoorsy from Old Khaki. If you’re looking to pamper someone special, why not take a look at what Rain, The Body Shop and Sorbet have on offer. As you can see, there really is something for everyone this Christmas at Gardens Shopping Centre.

The vendors coming to the centre especially for this market include Lady Cupcake (purveyor of delicious baked goods), More Sauce & Relish (they make the best biltong relish ever!), and Classic Marmalades (they make chocolate orange marmalade, lime mojito marmalade, and a festive classic – cranberry sauce), and more!

The food vendors and cafes at Gardens Shopping Centre will be open as usual, so take a break when you’re done shopping and watch the world go by knowing that your Christmas shopping is totally taken care of.


Entrance to the market is free, and everyone is invited.
