THE LOURENSFORD MARKET
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 more than 60 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. Adjacent to the market, is our neighbours, the MOTOR Studio, who has the finest cars ever to be manufactured in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s on show and is also the home of ABRU Craft Beer. Lourensford Estate’s superb wine collection also complements 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!
First Fridays happen every first Friday of each month. On these nights, celebrated Cape Town DJs will showcase themed music and our dance floor will also be set up for an evening of dancing under the stars! Keep an eye on our Facebook event page for the theme reveal and on-the-night competitions!
We do not charge entrance fees. Your four-legged family members are also welcome at our Doggie Bar. Live music by our resident DJ on Fridays and live music performances by local artists on Sundays. Visit our Events Page for upcoming market dates.
