Chapter 14: Markets - Updated 2022

You can expect to find anything amidst the hustle of the markets in Cape Town. But if you’re looking for a farm-fresh outing with truckloads of good stuff to eat and drink, walk this way.

The Old Biscuit Mill

The Old Biscuit Mill is a vibrant hub of art, design and food, right in the heart of Woodstock. It’s the cool capital in Cape Town, and it’s one of the most exciting up-and-coming hubs.

Why go?

This repurposed factory space comes alive on Saturday mornings with the Neighbourgoods Market. From bakers to butchers, grocers to designers, the market features over 100 speciality traders.

Bay Harbour Market

Located at the edge of the sea overlooking Chapman’s Peak at the foot of the famous Hangberg Mountain; this once-abandoned factory is now the legendary Bay Harbour Market, home to over 100 entrepreneurial traders, who attract over 24,000 visitors a month.

Why go?

One of the Bay Harbour Market’s key aims is to give traders, many of whom are from disadvantaged backgrounds, an opportunity to develop their artistic and business skills and set up sustainable businesses.
