The MACUFE Craft Market has grown in leaps and bounds from its humble beginnings in the early years of the festival, when it was more like a street flea market compared to the formal organised market it is today.
The market features over 100 exhibitors of Visual Arts and Crafts from all over Southern Africa. All the crafters bring ready to buy products and make some on site, thus adding to the create flair that the market has come to be known for. Their products range from wire products, wool products, clothing, shoes, leather products (belts, jackets,etc) as well as a myriad of beauty, health and home (décor) products.
The market is hosted inside a big air-conditioned marquee. Over and above the different exhibitions, there will be a food court with a full beer garden as well as a media centre and an accreditation centre for artists and journalist throughout the festival. The market will host music and cultural performances daily, with a special award ceremony for exhibitors planned.
