‘Tis the season to be jolly and there’s nothing jollier than getting into the Christmas spirit with a good ‘ol Christmas market. Cape Town is teeming with some great markets this season, but Blouberg appears to be the area to keep an eye on.
If you’re looking for inviting markets that are perfect for meandering through aisles and purchasing the best-handcrafted goodies, here are two that you need to place in your calendar.
Christmas Night Markert – Riverside College
Well, not exactly in Blouberg, but a little drive away, the Riverside College in Burgundy Estate is set to host a night market that will leave you tingling with glee (we promise it’s just the Christmas spirit). Filled to the brim with exciting stalls decked out in a variety of items ranging from toys, clothing to personal gifts, this incredible market is the perfect stop for anyone looking to tick off a few names on their Christmas gift list.
