The Bay Harbour Market is a trendy curio market in Harbour road, Hout Bay. Located in an old fish factory next to Fish on the Rocks, the market has over 100 stalls on offer, with everything from clothes to African curios. What’s more, as the market forms part of the Hangberg Social Upliftment Project, your shopping spree will be for a good cause.
Step inside the undercover market space to be swamped with a variety of exciting stalls waiting to be explored. You will first enter a tented area where African-themed arts and crafts abound, with everything from whitewashed photo frames and trinkets, to locally designed t-shirts. The market then continues to the left where you enter the main part of the factory to find ceiling beams swaddled with colourful lights, chandeliers, and odds and ends. Here you will find a patchwork of colourful stalls offering décor, clothing, jewellery, and furniture.
Your nose will guide to the food section a little further along, where numerous stalls provide mouth-watering arrays of bunny chow, cappuccinos, organic food and drinks, seafood, freshly baked goods, and more. If all the browsing has made you a little thirsty, you can pick from a range of delicious coffees, slush puppies, homemade lemonades, alcoholic drinks, and smoothies – the mango and ginger smoothie is highly recommended! The market offers a lively vibe with singing and jazz performances by talented local artists.
