COUNTRY CRAFT MARKET
Country Craft Market
Southey’s Vines. 186 Main Road, Somerset West. Open on selected Saturdays in summer (9am-2pm)
The Country Craft Market in Somerset West is an open-air market that has been promoting high-quality handcrafts for the last thirty years. Started in 1983 with just 17 crafters, and a mandate to provide a platform for genuine handcrafts, this market has grown in size to 180 stalls on market day, without any compromise on the quality of the crafts offered. A varied range of crafts is to be found to the delight of the many visitors to the market.
Every year, near the end of each season (April-May), the market invites new traders to apply, and new crafters are selected to join the ranks. A selection committee of eight people, each specialists in various crafts, is tasked with selecting the very best to join the market.
The Country Kitchen provides a welcome respite for hungry, thirsty or weary visitors. This area is mostly charity based, with Rotary clubs and Scout troops providing refreshments.
Country Kids keeps the little ones occupied with a jumping castle, face-painting and sand-art.
There is plenty of safe, free parking behind the venue. The Country Craft Market is open during the summer months, September to May, on the dates indicated to the right.
