Every Saturday 9am - 2pm
Yellowwood Forest has become famous for its markets. This tranquil setting comes to life with the happy laughter of children playing while shoppers browse the interesting variety of stalls.
If you’re camping or staying here please DO join in the spirit of things. DO stay to enjoy the unusual circumstance of having a diverse assortment of stalls pop up near your site. Please DO NOT book to coincide with market dates if you’re intolerant of a festival atmosphere and happy holiday crowds for those few hours or come, but DO sneak off and return later, having missed it all. Come light and Shop local - it’s very very lekker!
Craft Markets are held on the 1st Saturday of every month and more frequently during the holidays.
The four December Holiday craft markets are particularly busy and dates for these are always the same; 16th, 23rd and 28th December and the 2nd of January. Crowds and trading are focused in the area around the campsite entrance to reception, the tea garden and play area. (Not in amongst the campsites) Traders gain access to set up stalls early then leave again to park off site).
Every Saturday from 9am - 2pm
The selection on offer varies but one can expect freshly baked bread, just picked vegetables and salad greens, pickles, preserves, pasta and smoked meats. Also your favorite home baked eats and treats as well as quality second hand books and goodies.
The Forest Fare is about making a commitment to living as locally as possible and reducing the gigantic carbon footprint associated with trucking stuff in. Support our industrious locals; it's a way to satisfy your conscience as much as your taste buds. Please join in. Local is very VERY lekker!
Come to trade, swop or shop. Homemade home grown rules apply. Bring along something you've made to eat or grown from your garden or clear out your cupboards; your junk could be someone else's treasure! Bring a little or bring a lot.
