Most of us work a full time job and when we get home after 5 in the afternoon cooking’s the last thing we want to do, especially on a Friday evening! We suggest you try the Sunningdale Evening Market which takes place on the first Friday of every month from 6pm until 10pm in the Sunningdale Sports Complex to avoid a night of cooking and treat yourself to a bite to eat while browsing the crafts on display at one of our favourite Blouberg markets.
The idea of the market came to be in June of 2010 when it was run from a volunteer’s home to provide a platform for friends and family to showcase their home-made goods and crafts. The market was also established out of a need to provide more affordable products of a high quality standard while supplementing the incomes of the Blouberg traders involved.
The need in Bloubergstrand for these markets got bigger and bigger until the Sunningdale Evening Market was forced to find larger premises, moving to its current location at the Sunningdale Sports Complex where it can give access to more traders as well as more clients. It grew from a simple craft market and when more trading applications were accepted a good number of open spaces were reserved for food, jewellery, clothing, luxury goods (at a better price), candy and other desserts, books and even toy traders.
This coming Friday, the 7th of December, they will be having a pre-Christmas market that will offer excellent discounts, a huge selection of products and (you guessed it) great emphasis was placed on bringing in traders that sells gifts, crafts and other pretty things to liven up your festive season in Blouberg.
The venue is also licensed so you can enjoy something from the bar while you’re strolling around the stalls.
