It's not a trip to the Garden Route without stopping off at all the great markets along the way. Get out and enjoy handmade treats, organic fruit and veggies, or arts and crafts at the day markets. In the evenings, put on your dancing shoes and enjoy some craft beer with live music. Taste tapenades, artisanal bread, fine wines and local cheeses.
