& Craft Market
Your family market since 1998
The market runs every Saturday from 6:30am to 12:30pm.
Upon a hill in the Shongweni Valley, KZN overlooking the majestic Kirk Falls sits The Shongweni Farmers & Craft Market. Just a short drive meandering through the picturesque cane fields bright and early every Saturday morning from 6:30am to 12:30pm you will find a buzz of activity. Our local traders sell everything from fresh produce, deli, food, crafts and art. The market has an ambience like no other, which is complimented by the local talented musicians who perform every week on two stages, we often have the likes of Qadasi, Tanner Wareham and Indeep.
The market is a space for the whole family to enjoy and spend time together (pets included!), kids can run free and also take part in some of the activities such as The Shongweni Express Train rides, pony rides, merry-go-rounds, jungle gyms. If you would like to take a walk on the wild side we have a short nature trail. Adults are welcome to join us in The Standing Room in the main hall where we serve our very own craft beer and gin.
We are open rain or shine as we are all undercover and we are fully wheelchair accessible.
We are registered members of the 1000Hills Tourism Association – www.1000hillstourism.co.za
Every month there is a new array of local talent that showcase their skills for the people of Shongweni Market. We believe is supporting the up and coming local artists by giving them a platform and an audience.
