The Friday Market
Every Friday from the beginning of September through to the end of May the Knysna Montessori School hosts local, national and international visitors at the famous Friday Supper and Craft Market – commonly known as the Knysna Friday Market. Every week there is a local musician to entertain the visitors. The market also provides local businesses with an opportunity to showcase their skills and sell their delicious wares and is a significant fundraiser for the school. As a result people are asked not to bring their own food and drink to the market but rather enjoy all that is offer from the stalls. Please note that no dogs are allowed at the Friday Market and no children are to be dropped off and left unsupervised.
Tables at the Friday Market can be sponsored by regular visitors who would like to guarantee themselves a table and seat especially during the holiday season. So make sure you make friends with the locals if you would like to sit at a table… Or bring your own picnic blanket or folding chairs.
As an entrepreneurial opportunity for the older Montessori students, they have a stall at the market where they sell the products from their businesses/occupations.
Every Friday from 4pm – 8pm for some good local food, entertainment or just good company. Sit around the fires, mingle with the locals and celebrate the weekend while sampling what local restaurants offer. Bring the kids and blanket or chairs.
Follow the scarecrows up Welbedacht Lane to get to the Knysna Friday Market.
