Overview

*Please note: The market is currently CLOSED for Winter from June - August '18)* 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.

Lourensford Market is a must. The variety if food available is great. The prices reasonable. Do not forget to visit the collection of cars just outside of the market. There is a very nice play area for small children just outside one of the restaurants...More

Lovely Sunday morning spot. Love to enjoy breakfast and coffee under the trees and the best part is it's pet friendly, so the whole family can go.

Love the Friday evenings, lots of vibe, live music, food stalls, wine and craftbeer. Expect large crowds of people from quite early on in the evening, arrive early to get a seat. Alternatively stand and dance the night away!

Great market in beautiful surroundings. An opportunity to enjoy a relaxed picnic in the gardens with partner or family. Good food, wine and sunshine on a Sunday morning. Definitely worth a visit when in the Helderberg.

An old vineyard that has diversified, clearly very popular with locals as they have great markets on Friday evening's and Sunday morning's. Definately worth a visit.

This is fantastic, with so much choice for food. You are able to try authentic cuisine from around the world. However being in a wheelchair it's next to impossible to get around. Gravel along with sand is the worst thing for someone in a wheelchair...More
