Our annual guide to Christmas & Gift markets in and around Cape Town.


As the impact of the CoronaVirus continues to be felt in South Africa, many markets had to CLOSE for several months, in the interests of public safety. However, as the restrictions are eased, markets are finding ways to re-open in a safe manner, or to go online.  We will post this information on our website as we hear of it, and will share the news on our Instagram feed and on Facebook. We are also working to update the details provided in our Market Guide and Calendar to match that as quickly as possible.
