Friday Market



Every Friday from the end of September through to the end of May Knysna Montessori School hosts local, national and international visitors at the famous Friday Supper and Craft Market. Every week we have a local musician to entertain our visitors. The market also provides local businesses with an opportunity to showcase their skills and sell their delicious wares, and is a significant fundraiser for the school. As a result we ask that people do not bring their own food and drink to the market but rather enjoy all that is on offer from the stalls, and our licensed bar. Please note that no dogs are allowed at the Friday Market and no children are to be dropped off and left unsupervised. Should you wish to hire a stall at The Friday Market kindly contact the school office for more information.

Tables at the Friday Market can be sponsored by regular visitors who would like to guarantee themselves a table and seat especially during the holiday season. The cost of sponsoring a table in the first year is R1000 and R750 for every year after. Please contact reception at Knysna Montessori School to find out more.

As an entrepreneurial opportunity for the older Montessori students, they have a stall at the market where they sell the products from their businesses/occupations.

Friday Market Bar Duty: all of our parents are asked to help with the Friday Market by taking part in one bar duty. This entails serving drinks from 5:00 to 8:00 (latest).  If you are unable to make it, then please contact reception at the school as soon as possible. You can pay R150.00 to cover paying someone to do your bar duty instead should you wish.

Sponsorships provide the KMS community with an opportunity to help fund development of the school and also promote their business. Throughout the year as sponsorship opportunities occur we will notify parents. Currently, there is the opportunity to provide sponsorship for the development of our astro turf and advertise your business on a board next to the sports fields.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
