About Franschhoek Village Market

Franschhoek accommodation is in popular demand because this quaint little village is one of the highlights of the Cape Winelands. It combines world-class cuisine with unbelievable wines, history, and a joie de vivre that is quite extraordinary. And it is in the heart of this charm that the Franschhoek Village Market is held every Saturday from 09h00 to 15h00.

This market is focussed on celebrating beautiful flavours, soulful music, and gorgeous arts and crafts. Of course, the backdrops of the oak trees and spectacular mountains around Franschhoek set an idyllic scene that is hard to beat.

Franschhoek is affectionately dubbed the culinary capital of the country, thanks to its being the home of some of the finest chefs, restaurants and wineries in the world. So, it is no wonder that the Franschhoek Village Market showcases food, wine, coffee and sweets that are beyond decadent. They are simply irresistible. Sometimes, a few of the top chefs in South Africa may make an appearance at the market and delight visitors with the techniques and flavours that made them famous. This is a real treat.

The crafts available here are of incredible quality too. They range from authentic African beadwork and prints to bespoke wooden creations and unique pieces. Clothing, jewellery, accessories and stunning goodies for the home are on offer so that the dedicated shopaholics among us are spoilt for choice.

During the Bastille Festival, the market bursts at the seams, with vendors and artists from further afield coming here to be part of the festivities, and to celebrate the heritage of the French Huguenots.

With this incredible variety of beautiful things to do, see and taste; many visitors agree that this is one of the best markets in the Cape. Franschhoek is about 40 minutes from Stellenbosch, and about 75 minutes from Cape Town.
