Christmas Fairs and Night Markets, 2022

Christmas demands entertainment and a flurry of positive energy in the streets. This festival is a huge celebration where you can find spectacular Christmas markets and Cape Town Craft Fairs that are all decked out with lights, décor, and everything wonderful. There is so much to do and so many locations to browse. 

Due to the pandemic, most Christmas markets were closed or cancelled in previous years. However, this year, if you’re still looking for that unique, locally made gift, consider visiting a Christmas market. Although most people believe that Christmas markets are truly magical, the preparation and study required to select the best can be daunting, considering a wide range of elements. Fortunately, eKomi has conducted the necessary research, saving you the trouble.

eKomi’s Tip: Do Your Research

First, thoroughly investigate the dates for Christmas market openings. The dates are never quite the same every year because the majority of opening dates revolve around opening on a specific day of the week. Additionally, they vary from location to location. To confirm dates, always visit the official event websites.


The majority of people in today’s digital age are knowledgeable about almost everything online. This is why it’s crucial to perform thorough research. A good way to start would be to evaluate visitor’s reviews. Online reviews are far more insightful and fascinating when they are posted online. One would prefer to go to a location that has received favourable reviews from returning visitors. People typically read reviews with the assumption that the reviewers are informed and able to provide a detailed description of various things like the food, experience, etc.

Therefore, using rankings and evaluations given by clients via Google My Business Profiles, we curated a listing of the top rated and most reviewed Christmas markets that are scheduled for 2022 in Cape Town.
