Bay Harbour Market Photographs

Send to Kindle

I’m a big fan of a market so imagine my sheer joy when we walked into the Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay!  It seemed to be a case of ‘the early bird catches the worm’ because on arriving at around 9.30am we managed to walk around easily, found a table to sit at and didn’t have to wait in to long a queue to order our delicious breakfast and perfectly made creamy cappuccino.

I was so impressed with this market; it’s been open for about six weeks and in that short space of time has become very popular.  There are over 100 stalls which have a healthy mix of food, art, clothing, craft, décor and fashion.  I loved the beautiful cushions, napkins and aprons Melanie of Quiver Design had on show and the ceramics Noleen Read produces are definitely on my Christmas list.  The food all looked absolutely delicious and the only thing to do is to make the market a regular weekend stop to try all the produce offered.

The market is open 10am – 5pm on Saturdays, 10am – 4pm on Sundays and from September 9th will also open from 4pm – 9pm on a Friday. There is ample, secure parking available.

After living in London and travelling the world for many years and more recently living in the Mother City, I now reside on a tranquil sugar cane farm in Kearsney; an area steeped in the history of South Africa’s sugar industry. During the summer months I get involved with the community by assisting the local primary school with swimming lessons at our country club. Some of my favourite things are reading or picking freshly grown vegetables and Iceland poppies in our garden. Milly, my boxer loves her walks to the river that runs through our farm and sometimes, Sandy the cat I hand reared, joins us for a stroll!
