ORIBI Gorge will host it’s first farmers’ market this weekend and organisers are very excited about the support and excitement that has been shown towards the event.

“The market has been planned for nine months by three women who live on farms in Oribi Gorge,” said Beth Louw, one of the organisers.

“We are passionate about promoting the Oribi community and small businesses on the South Coast.”

The market takes place on 16, 17, 18 December from 9am to 5pm.

Fredheim Farm in Oribi Gorge is the venue where over 40 vendors will showcase a variety of products, from home-made crafts and gifts, children’s toys and clothing, preserves, fresh produce, gourmet food and sweet treats, biltong and nuts, beauty products, locally made honey, tea- tree products and more.

“We also have lots in store to keep the children entertained - a bike track, jumping castles, sandpits, petting animals and tractor rides,” said Louw.

There will also be live music throughout the day.

“Our main sponsors, Toyota and John Deere, will also have a display at the market people to browse around and enjoy.

We hope to provide a fun filled weekend for the whole family.”
