A market in the park

Shop for gems, gifts at the Rondebosch Park Market

Last updated: Wednesday, 27 October 2021

Shop for Christmas gifts at a market in a park? With stalls selling crafts and handmade goods, like jewellery and bags, as well as plants and succulents, preserves, artisanal coffee and lots more, the Rondebosch Park Market delivers many gift ideas and it’s a lovely way to spend a day.

FIND TREASURES UNDER THE TREES

The Rondebosch Park Market has been around for over 30 years and it’s set up in the park under shady trees. There are numerous stalls selling wares from handmade items carved from wood, jewellery and artworks to knitwear.

You can also find clothing, preserves, artisanal coffee and even a very interesting selection of succulents.

GRAB A BITE AS YOU SHOP

Hungry after all the browsing and shopping? The market has a variety of food stalls selling everything from coffee to burgers and chips. You can eat while listening to the live music and buy baked breads, cheeses, olives, honey, preserves and artisanal coffee to take home.

GET YOUR GROOVE ON

There is a band that performs on a regular basis at the market, as well as a DJ who will be sure to keep the beats going as you shop around. “Our DJ plays the best music, so much so that the shoppers, when they are done shopping and organising food, they anchor themselves at one of the tables and enjoy it for as long as they can, almost like a monthly gathering with friends/family,” says Judi Karlsson, the market organiser. 

BRING YOUR FURRY FRIEND 

The market is dog friendly, but please be sure to keep your pooches on a leash. Dogs can also get in on the fun at an animal rescue organisation’s stall, which sells items like dog bowls, beds, leads and toys, as well as bandanas and treats.

How to attend

The Rondebosch Park Market takes place on the second Saturday of every month, between 9am - 2pm. There will also be a Twilight Market on Wednesday the 22nd December 2021, from 3 pm - 8 pm, which is the perfect opportunity to do some last minute Christmas shopping.
