What to expect
Nestled amidst verdant lawns, gardens, and oak trees, the market is a feast for the senses. You’ll also find pop-up stores, a rustic venue, and an interactive fountain for children to enjoy. The market has weekend live music too, with DJs every Friday and acoustic acts every Saturday and Sunday. Plus, car enthusiasts can indulge in vintage cars at the MOTOR Studio.
One of the most popular events is the Friday Night Twilight Market, where visitors unwind at Oak Tree Lane, shop from vendors, and soak in the night market. The market is wheelchair accessible, pram-friendly, and allows leashed pets. There’s no entry fee, and a R10 parking fee (waived with Estate Wine purchases).
If you’re visiting during the winter, then the Lourensford Market team has a unique food and beverage experience at the Laurent Venue. This event runs for three months, where you can warm up with the seasonal menu of comfort foods, winter favourites, speciality coffees, hot chocolates, and a variety of wines.
Plan your visit for Fridays (5 pm-9 pm), Saturdays (11 am-4 pm), or Sundays (10 am-3 pm). Don’t forget to bring your appetite because there’s something for everyone at the Lourensford Market! From egg-and-bacon rolls, biltong, artisanal cheeses to decadent desserts, you’re in for a treat.
