Prince Albert’s Saturday morning market is a much loved institution and is held every Saturday morning on the square next to the Fransie Pienaar Museum.
Saturday morning – 8 am to roughly 12 pm
Stallholders offer dried fruit, homemade jams, pickles, cakes and bread, patés, fresh fruit, free-range eggs and organic vegetables.
Enjoy a cup of coffee with a pancake or breakfast at the market.
You can often buy herbs and plants for your garden.
Some Saturdays you will find crafters selling their wares.
Volunteers from the ‘Thursday Group’ run a White Elephant stall which supports the soup kitchen and other charities in the village.
In the Government Gazette of 30 October 1855, the Governor, Sir George Grey, gave permission for Prince Albert to hold a weekly market. The site where the market is held, was formerly the vegetable garden for the Haak family who built the house which now holds the Museum in 1904.
