Picnic On The Lawns To The Sounds Of Jazz In Kirstenbosch

Crafts and fall-off-the-bone brisket at the family-friendly, dog-friendly monthly summer market

There’s no shortage of summer markets in Cape Town, but the Kirstenbosch Craft & Food Market has to be one of the nicest. There’s live jazz, it’s family and dog-friendly, and set under huge, leafy trees close to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. It’s also a Cape Town institution – it’s been running for around 30 years.

The market will be held on 24 November, 8 and 22 December at the historic Stone Cottage grounds. It’s scheduled to run on the last Sunday of the month until March, but the other dates have not been set yet. 

UCT’S JAZZ STUDENTS WILL PROVIDE THE MUSIC
The market takes place on the lawns, where people can lay out picnic blankets. Or you can sit at a table with chairs and listen to music by UCT’s jazz students, led by Associate Professor Michael Campbell, Head of Jazz Studies at UCT. There’s also a tea garden.

IT’S STRICTLY A CRAFT MARKET
What’s unique about the Kirstenbosch Craft & Food Market is that it features exclusively handmade items from around 250 traders. There’ll be art, pottery, woven goods, baskets, clothing, ceramics, leather goods, jewellery, handbags, light fittings, woodwork and toys, among other goods.

Stalls also sell fresh produce and pantry staples such as cheese, honey and jam, plus there’ll be a braai, as well as Indian, Halaal, vegan and vegetarian foods. Meat-eaters are also catered for, with everything from shawarmas to an incredible brisket by Hungry Bear.

WATCH: FALL-APART BRISKET
