There are some amazing family-friendly things to do in and around Cape Town during the holidays. Better yet, you can stock up on gifts at some great Christmas markets happening throughout December.
There are so many Christmas markets taking place in Cape Town leading up to Christmas that it’s often difficult to choose which ones to go to. These are our favourites…
Camphill Village Country Market
This quaint little market on the West Coast is the perfect stop on a relaxed drive up the West Coast. With a rustic farm setting surrounding the market area, Camphill Village has their own organic produce on sale including fruit, vegetables, home-made breads, rusks and biscuits and other delicious organic food stalls.

The “I Love Big Bay” Market
After just two successful monthly markets, the I Love Big Bay Market has the potential to become one of the West Coast’s top markets around. It takes place right on Big Bay beach where visitors can enjoy an epic sunset and the view of Table Mountain.
Their offering includes several food trucks, over 10 options for dinner, fashion, craft and goods traders, not to mention great coffee, cold brews, two wine bars, and craft beer on tap.

Eden on the Bay Christmas Market
With the best view of Table Mountain in Cape Town, Eden on the Bay is a popular hub on the West Coast for tourists and locals all year round. That makes it the perfect spot for an outdoor Christmas market: just the sea, sun and a great vibe.
The market showcases the best of local arts and crafts, with food provided by Eden’s own restaurants. Why not make a day of it with the family? Once you’re done browsing the variety of stalls, enjoy ice cold sun downers at one of the restaurants on the strip or relax on the rolling lawns. Sound good?
