For the perfect outing and the most incredible selection of hand-crafted gifts, ceramics, art, plants and so much more visit The Collective Hout Bay - Local Artisan Gift Emporium and The Café Collective.
The Collective - Hout Bay is a local artisan gift emporium and market complimented by a Pantry/Deli gift section that features over 200 local makers, creatives, and artists, whose products are all made by hand and celebrate South Africa – from quality bespoke furniture and ceramics to a wide variety of carefully curated gifts.
With ample free parking available in front or at Mainstream Mall, shoppers can just pop over the small bridge over the running stream at The Roastery and find The Collective at the end in the Courtyard. Visitors can explore the bead, crystal, and jewellery shops, and an Ice Cream shop around the corner.
Situated in one of the historical buildings in the area, the iconic Old Post Office, The Collective - Hout Bay offers the ideal outing, boasting something of everything, local artisan shopping, beading, ice cream, local eatery, a teahouse, and even a kid's play area.
The Café Collective, situated in the Precinct Courtyard, serves coffee, gourmet Montreal-style bagels, pastries, cakes, and Harvest Table Salads are also available.
The Hout Bay Collective forms part of the neighborhood's Last Thursdays event. Last Thursdays is a monthly foodie, arts, and culture community-driven evening experience taking place in the heart of Hout Bay.
