Food and wine have been defining features of Franschhoek, the Cape's French Corner, since its founding years. A group of 176 hard-working and principle-bound French Huguenots including farmers, viticulturists, and artisans found this town in 1688, and their pioneering legacy lives on. These days Franschhoek boasts S.Pellegrino World Top 50 best restaurants, award-winning wine estates, and cultural attractions.
It’s only fitting that a thriving village market continues the Franschhoek legacy. Our high-quality goods are traded in the town center, providing a market space for producers, traders, and buyers. We have been consistently rated as one of the best markets in the Cape region, and continue to build on the work of our predecessors. The market is managed by the mom-and-daughter team; Elsuna and Elzahn, who revived the market in 2016.
