Boerevintage Gift Market was established in 2015 by Laetitia Kotze, a local mom, wife and small business owner from George in the Garden Route. She identified the need for a Gift Market with quality products and a huge variety to cater to the locals as well as the thousands of tourists that visit the Garden Route during the December holidays.
The market started off on 16 December 2015 with only 50 stalls in a small hall and was held at the beautiful Tramonto Wedding Venue in Geelhoutboom, George. Since then, it has grown into a Gift Market of more than 150 stalls with brands from all over South Africa. It occupies a tented area of approximately 1400 square metres to accommodate all its exhibitors and visitors.
Boerevintage Gift Market was held at Redberry farm for the very first time in December 2019. It was a phenomenal success with the attendance of 19300 verified visitors, the most ever in the history of the market. In 2020 the market was held during the height of the COVID 19 pandemic in the Garden Route but we managed to have a very successful event and were even able to grow our turnover by a further 12%.
Not only does the market give small businesses an opportunity to sell their products, it also employs around 30 people during the actual event period and manages to create a lucrative platform for 150 plus exhibitors and their staff on which to build their brand.
If you are creative and hardworking, the owner of a small business, an artist, an artisan or a crafter, you can also become part of Boerevintage Gift Market.
