Cape Town Markets
Cape Town is famous for its friendly faces, brilliant beaches, magnificent mountains and the V&A Waterfront with its stunning waterfront apartments and marina apartments. But a visit to the Mother City would not be complete without experiencing at least one Cape Town market.
No matter where you’re staying during your visit to Cape Town, you’re certain to find a market just around the corner.
Affectionately known as the “Old Biscuit Mill” by locals, this award-winning market can be found in the trendy suburb of Woodstock.
It’s jam packed with local flavour and a must see for all. The market sells fresh, locally sourced, organic food with an emphasis on selling only the highest-quality produce.
The market is only open on Saturdays between 9am – and 2pm, and its a good idea to try and get there early. It’s dog friendly, provided your dogs are friendly and should be on a lead at all times.
Oranjezicht City Market
This market takes place every Saturday and Sunday between 9am – 3pm at the historic Granger Bay site of the V&A Waterfront.
It’s a community farmers-style market for independent local farmers and artisanal food producers.
It’s a great day out for the whole family, and customers can pick up their weekly food fresh as well as treat themselves to a delicious meal.
Green Market Square
Green Market Square is the oldest and most popular market in Cape Town and is situated in Cape Town’s city centre.
It has a lively atmosphere and is surrounded by cafés and restaurants. Amongst the goods on offer are a variety of African curios, drums, candles, clothing and specialty stands.
Kirstenbosch Gardens Craft Market
While Kirstenbosch Gardens is renowned for its beautiful flowers and scenery, its craft market, located in the cottages diagonally opposite the main entrance, is growing in popularity.
In addition to the gifts, curios, clothing, homeware and food sold, children can enjoy pony rides whilst their parents browse. This makes it a fun day out for the entire family.
Cape Town Markets
Hout Bay market is the perfect destination for your Sunday afternoon drive. Although not the largest of markets, it offers a diversity of goods that range from pottery and wire crafts to painted ostrich eggs and wooden sculptures.
An added bonus is that it’s situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Cape Town and is only a walk away from the beach, restaurants and ice cream shops
