Markets:

Montagu Village Market
Euvrard Park in Bath Street (directly across from the Tourism Bureau) is a sleepy little hollow during the week with very little activity apart from the occasional visitor and flocks of birds. Come Saturday, it is transformed in a bustling hive of activity!
Once an event it is now fast becoming an institution, with visitors coming from far and wide, to sample and buy the vast variety of goods on sale. Local cheeses not only compare with their more expensive foreign counterparts, but those in the know swear that they are far superior. Organic goods like eggs, butter, olive oil and vegetables (to name but a few) are a welcome change to the commercial fare normally available at the supermarkets.

Date: Every Saturday in Summer 08h00 - 12h30 and 08h30 - 12h30 in Winter
Venue: Euvrard Park, Bath Street - opposite Montagu Tourism Bureau


The Drotdy Museum
The Drostdy was built by the Dutch East India Company in 1747 to serve as residence and official headquarters for the Landdrost. Soon after a gaol, a house for the secretary, a mill and various outbuildings were erected.
