Celebrating Christmas at the Franschhoek Village Market!

The Franschhoek Village Market is thrilled to present our annual and vibrant Christmas celebration market on 18, 19 & 20 December.

A 3-day summer market, packed with speciality gifts, family moments and lots of fun – the place where locals meet.

Quality, authentic, handcrafted goods, crafts and art are also on offer – the perfect array of original gifts to choose from for loved ones, or even yourself!

Bring the whole family, even the furry friends (on a leash), and celebrate the festive season with us under the historic oak trees, in the heart of Franschhoek.

Open every day from 9am – 3pm with soulful live music setting the mood for a bubbly, exciting Christmas Market. See you there!
