Market Stops in the Mother City – Cape Town

My sister and I recently visited one of the most loved cities in the world-Cape Town.

We are fortunate enough to live just a 2 hour flight away from this magnificent city!

Apart from the stunning beaches, the unforgettable mountain views and shops are Cape Town’s home grown markets.

Our first stop was at The Old Biscuit Mill which hosts The Neighbourgoods Market.


It was a windy winter day but we braved the cold. There were a host of stalls consisting mostly of handmade crafts and clothes but the smell of fresh coffee and baked goods caught our attention. There are an array of stalls with organic produce and home baked goodies that will keep you coming back for more.


We visited on a Saturday and the place was quite packed so make sure you get there early!


Our next stop was the V&A Waterfront Food Market. I honestly wish I had more than one stomach for this excursion! The food choices were endless from healthy smoothies to ice cream, fresh baked pies to rice paper rolls. Everything is made on the spot and they are open daily which means you can satisfy your cravings any day!


The vibe was relaxed and the seating is scattered enabling you to find a quiet spot to enjoy your meal. It’s a great place for friends to hang out and I would recommend buying a variety of dishes and sharing. There is so much to enjoy!


One of my favourite stops was the Watershed Craft Market situated next to the V&A Waterfront Food Market.

This craft market is so elegantly displayed which makes your shopping experience effortless and enjoyable. It is situated indoors so despite Cape Town’s windy weather you can still visit this market. I stumbled upon hand made jewelry, toys and authentic African woodwork.This is the perfect place to invest in a few trinkets to remind you of your trip.

Our last stop was in Cape Town’s CBD at the Greenmarket Square.

Greenmarket Square is a market full of vibrant scarves, jewelry,bags and much more. It is an open market and a great visit on a sunny day. What I loved most is that you can find an array of goods but the stall owners are willing to bargain with you. If you love beaded trinkets and unique buys then this market is for you!
