A new heart for George
The Outeniqua Farmers’ Market is located opposite the Garden Route Mall on the N2
The ancient name Outeniqua means ‘the land where honey comes from’. This changed on 19 November 2011 when the Outeniqua Farmers’ Market opened, providing a new shopping destination that created a new heart for George. From that day onwards, Outeniqua is the land where honey, cheese, fish, chocolate, cakes, berries and other delicious foods comes from.
The Outeniqua Farmers’ Market is located opposite the Garden Route Mall on the N2. The five-hectare site is the home to more than 125 food and craft stalls offering produce and goods created by local farmers and skilled craft people. From berries to bread, fish to flowers, and everything in between, local residents and international visitors find carefully selected goods to suit the most discerning tastes, at consistently reasonable prices.

By George, what a great place...
The stalls at the market comprise a sophisticated mix of local produce and crafts. All goods are priced to ensure that everything remains accessible and affordable. Stallholders have been selected through a rigorous research and interview process. All goods must be sourced from the local George area and they must be produced, grown or processed in the area. This means that stallholders can showcase their products to an international market while injecting crucial trade revenue that stays within the area.
The market is also designed with convenience, entertainment and seasonality in mind. There is parking for over 1 200 cars. Entertainment nooks provide a space for carefully selected musicians, comedians, singers, bands and other entertainers to keep the whole family busy. With 300m² of additional undercover space, the market can remain open in any weather. A network of walkways are perfect for walking the dog through the venue, so even four-legged visitors can soak up the ambience. Kids can play in the activity area and can interact with the stalls designed specially for them.

After a journey of two-and-a-half years, and significant investment from local business people, that vision is now a reality. The Outeniqua Farmers’ Market opened to the public on Saturday 19 November 2011.
The five-hectare site lies opposite the Garden Route Mall at the George junction on the N2. Visitors to the Outeniqua Farmers’ Market will find nearly 130 food and craft stalls spread across a total trading area of 1 260m².
