Country Craft Market (Somerset West)


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.

The market invites new traders to apply, throughout the year. New crafters are selected to join the ranks by a selection committee of eight people, each specialists in various crafts. They are tasked with selecting the very best to join the market.

The Country Kitchen provides a relaxing place to sit down in the shade and enjoy a light lunch or craft beer while being entertained by one of our talented buskers.

There is a jumping castle to keep the little ones entertained.
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.

  1. Hi, the Harfield Village Assocation, is having a fund raising event as a street Carnival, which has become very popular during the past years, and we have some stalls still available. Would like to enquire if you could share this with some of your stall holders like arts/crafts/jewellery/crystals/ etc. .
    We would really appreciate all your help
