Hermanus Fisherman's Village Craft Market

Every Saturday, The Curio & Craft Daily Market offers you a fantastic experience whilst nestled in the center of our lovely town at the Old Harbour Market Square. The stalls that open up to the public every day from 10h00 until 17h00 are reminiscent of the stalls in Hermanus’ history, and sell many hand made products that are both beautiful and hold a bit of Hermanus in them. Among the shops you will find kelp horns, paintings, sculptures and beaded art works as well as the more traditional African deities and jewellery.
