Oranjezicht City Farm Market: Now at Granger Bay the V&A Waterfront
This one specialises in fresh food and has lots of awesome breakfast options to choose from, from Lebanese to German fare (and many more glorious options that are too overwhelming to list). If that’s not quite enough for you, fill the gap with a red velvet brownie or a potjie pie. There are gluten-free and sugar-free options available too (that look darn good). Wash that down with some fresh orange juice or a warm cup of coffee as you sit on a hay bale enjoying the view of the sea.
Bay Harbour Market
The Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay brings together crafters, artists and busking musicians every Saturday and Sunday. The smell of fresh fish grilling on the coals and the aroma of just-baked bread wafts in the air, whetting the appetite and giving shoppers a hint of traditional Cape food.
Neighbourgoods Market ( aka The Biscuit Mill)
Every Saturday rain or shine, the Woodstock Old Biscuit Mill comes alive. It is as much a source for farm fresh as well as organic foods and locally produced specialty goods, as it is a meeting point to enjoy community, swap ideas and stories, and become educated about what we buy and eat by going directly to the source. Look forward to excellent brewed coffee at Origin and Espresso Lab, refreshing middle eastern style salads, beef or chicken shwarmas. Or go Asian with delicious noodle dishes and dim sum. Then satisfy your sweet tooth with Nutella crepes, Belgium waffles or Dutch poffertjies. Yum!
City Bowl Night Market

They have around 30 different stalls to choose from, all of which are carefully handpicked whilst they scour the Cape for traders that offer the highest quality, freshest ingredients & a passion for food.
