Every Saturday morning from 10h00 to 12h00 Greyton's Market Square is abuzz with activity, where people flock to buy home-made and home-crafted goods. The market is run by volunteers from the Greyton Conservation Society, each stallholder donating 10% of his or her takings to this worthy cause weekly. To see where and how this revenue is spent, peruse this website further!
This is very much a Community Market with a variety of goods from Greyton and the villages of the Overberg. A visit to the market is the highlight of a visitor's weekend, providing an abundance of food items for those in self-catering accommodation as well as an opportunity for a spontaneous picnic while passing the time of day with new friends! Greyton has a wealth of talented artists and crafters who display their diverse work each week without fail.
The History of the Market
The Market Square, once used as an “outspan” for churchgoers coming from the outlying farms by wagon or cart once a month for Holy Communion, now hosts the Saturday Morning Market. The market was started by Helen Solomons, Margaret Skeat and Lorraine Robinson in 1978 and has become a regular weekly social event bringing together residents, weekenders and visitors.
