Helicopter rides, horseback riding, a farmer’s market and a beach bar are just some of the many attractions at the recently launched Blythedale Coastal Adventure Market.
Travellers can experience the "most epic family market on the coast" every Sunday from 9 am to 4 pm. The market is the brainchild of Bronwyn Roos and Devon Ueckermann.
“Devon and I have been behind the Umhlanga Night Market for over a year now. We have seen the effect that markets have on people and wanted to create something new and innovative. We so happened to stumble upon the Blythedale Coastal Estate and fell in love with the scenery. It was the perfect place to start an adventure market. We pitched our idea, and they loved it,” said Roos.
And it's a good thing they did. The first market on November 4 was a resounding success with around 2500 people in attendance. The market offers views of the Indian Ocean and the indigenous forests- and the ideal spot for the entire family for the upcoming holidays.
“The market is unlike anything KwaZulu-Natal has seen before. The concept is centred adventure for the entire family while still promoting fresh local produce and artisan food markets.
"Coupled with a range of activities and entertainment makes it a winning formula,” said Roos.
