– Listen to live music, enjoy some good street food and drinks –
Franschhoek Village Market
Cosy time under the oak trees
Every Saturday from 10am to 3pm there’s a smaller market in the centre of Franschhoek. Here you can find some nice crafts and tourist souvenirs. However, the thing making this well worth a visit is sitting under the oak tress, listening to live music, enjoying some good street food and drinks (beers, cocktails, wine, smoothies) and just soak up the relaxing vibe.
Old Biscuit Mill
The Neighbourgoods Market
Woodstock is an old rugged industrial area in Cape Town, but during the last years it has started to shift towards a hip neighbourhood. This award-winning market, which you find at the old biscuit mill, features over 100 specialty traders every Saturday. You’ll find local farmers, food vendors and lots of locally made clothes, leatherwork, pottery and more. You can look forward to plenty of locally produced food and drinks, the hardest choice is choosing what not to. eat. There’s also some live music and generally a good vibe. The Neighbourgoods market is open every Saturday from 9am to 2pm.
Bay Harbour Market at Hout Bay
This is a market we have yet to visit ourselves, so we have no personal experience of it yet. This market offer food, drinks, fashion, arts, crafts and a lot more. The trading hours are 5pm-9pm every Friday and 9.30am – 4pm every Saturday and Sunday.
Every weekend in Stellenbosch
Just south of Stellebosch at Audacia Winery there’s a market held every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year. If you want you can join the weekly 5k park run (free of charge) through the wines every Saturday morning, or just come for the food and drinks. There are some crafts and home decor vendors here but don’t expect too much. However, there’s plenty of food and drinks, a good sized area for the kids and live music. We recommend you getting something delicious to drink and just sit outside, socialising and listening to the music and have a good time.
