Be it to escape city life, or to experience something slightly off the winelands beaten track, the Helderberg Basin has become the trendiest new stop. And one of the favourite destinations within our spectacular mountain fringed valley is the Lourensford Market.
Situated on the stunningly scenic and historic Lourensford Wine Estate, we didn’t have to add much to appeal to all the senses. When visiting, you are spoiled with sprawling lawns, majestic trees and newly landscaped, award-winning gardens with an interactive fountain. A rare and special space to soak up all of nature’s beauty!
Add to that our vibrant market, boasting with more than 70 permanent stalls, as well as a number of Pop-ups to ensure an interesting mix. Housed in a permanent u-shaped structure with both a modern and rustic feel – it is unlike any other market space around. Quality products are our first priority and when strolling from vendor to vendor, you will find everything from delectable food, uniquely handmade wares and original art, to organic, locally sourced, artisanal produce. The Estate’s superb wine collection alongside ABRU craft beer, complement the inevitable festive atmosphere.
Our signature Friday night Twilight Market has become the local, after-work hangout where friends and family come together to ease into the weekend. Take a stroll down our Fairy Light Lane, visit your favourite vendors and grab a seat to enjoy the ultimate night-market experience! Starting September 2017, the Twilight Market will be open every Friday evening from 17h00 – 21h00 with live music by celebrated Cape Town artists and DJs.
We do not charge entrance fees. Your four-legged family members are also welcome at our Doggie Bar. The little ones will be entertained by various activities.
We’re excited to introduce #FirstFridays. Starting September 2017, the market will be open EVERY Friday evening from 17h00 - 21h00 and on the first Friday of the month, our resident DJ will showcase themed music. We will be setting up our dance floor for an evening of dancing under the stars! Keep an eye on the event page for every #FirstFriday for competitions and the theme reveal!
