Recently I was invited to attend a tourism gathering at the Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay, and how grateful I am for the opportunity. I had heard from many, in particular sweet thing Katie Coetzee, about the Bay Harbour Market, but as a Wellington resident hadn’t managed to get there. How fabulous this place is.
I love the move towards monthly and weekly markets, home grown produce, artisan brews and spirits, delicious treats, beautifully crafted jewellery and hand selected clothes. Bay Harbour Market seems to have the best of all of these under one roof, not just any roof either, but a huge old warehouse that’s been lovingly scrubbed up to create atmosphere, style and a sense of welcome that made me want to linger and enjoy it all. And spend money – which I did!
Now open on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays, if you are going to one market in Cape Town, make it this one. Bay Harbour Market, Hout Bay. As a teaser, please see some pics below depicting items for sale ….
You’ll also be pleased to know that the environment extends beyond ambiance with recycling playing a natural and essential role. Dirt bins are clearly marked and used accordingly.
