Looking for weekend fun ideas? Head for Glencairn and Simonstown for some interesting things to do and enjoy.
The Glen Road Community Market – Glencairn
This little gem of a monthly market, is nestled between the tranquil trees alongside the St Andrews Church in Glen Road. It offers close by parking in Glen Road and is easily accessible for all.
This much talked about market offers you an enjoyable slow stroll, while seeking out those beautiful hand crafted items and delicious home bakes made by the locals in the area.
While at the market, I would also recommend that you also explore the Glencairn Wetlands, a small nature reserve adjoining the market. The reserve protects the Cape wetland of the lower Else River, and is home to an abundance of indigenous plant and animal life.
WHEN: Sat 29 May from 9am to 2pm.
WHERE: Glen Road, Glencairn.
