The Edgemead Christmas Market is one of the bigger Christmas Markets in Cape Town, and always the one about which I get the most queries. I still haven’t been, but this December I will definitely be checking it out.
In my view, there are so many good reasons to shop at markets rather than at malls, and the popularity this year of Christmas markets seems to echo this sentiment. Let’s buy local, guys!
According to organisers, each year information is sent to more than one thousand crafters throughout the Western Cape. A selection process then takes place and two hundred of the “Cape’s Finest Crafters” are selected to take part in the Edgemead Christmas Market.
You will find everything here that your heart desires from delicious foodstuffs, jewellery, handcrafted leather and wrought iron, to glassware, mosaics, teddy bears and lots more! This market only happens once a year – don’t miss it!
Credit and debit card facilities are available at all pay points.
