Chapter 11: Markets
Drop by the Sunday Market to gather organic ingredients for that dinner party, grab a take-away or socialise and peruse through a collection of art that is ready for a spot on your wall.
From colourful handmade baskets to wooden toys, tattoo artistry and a glorious collection of vintage clothing, this expansive rooftop market is a fun and relaxed spot and a great place to pick up gifts or souvenirs.
This sister event to Cape Town’s Neighbourhood Goods Market, it’s a wonderful way to spend a Saturday.
Highlights include seasonal fruit and veggies from the Free State, delicious mini-Mediterranean quiches, meat from Braeside butchery in Parkhurst and beers from Darling Brewery.

Come Sunday, Market on Main makes for a great place to scrounge for burgers, paella, crepes, and more, as well as souvenirs—there are stalls selling clothes, handbags and t-shirts from local designers.
The goal of the market is to encourage inner-city living, and provide a relaxed and creative space for makers to trade, and for locals and visitors to spend their weekend leisure time.
