This is a development in up-and-coming Woodstock, where you have an upscale restaurant (taste kitchen) but also some clothes stores and some bars. I like the vibe here, very alternative and in an unusual place as well. Its small though, so you would not spend much time here but it’s good to do when it’s on your bucket list. Be aware in the area though, take the usual precessions.

Great spot to visit
Dec 2020
The Old Biscuit Mill is definitely worth a visit. On weekends the market is busting a great (especially for foodies). During the week there is a lovey variety of stores - all of which are unique and interesting. Also a couple of places to eat too. A nice place to explore and shop.

Showing Off our Unique Centre to our Family from Europe!
Dec 2020
….So much has changed here since the last time we were here. It’s good to note that they have a good Covid-19 Policy in place. At the boom/entrance you must report to the attendant who sprays your hands with sanitiser and takes your temperature also No Mask No Entree is the power of the day. There are over forty different shops or businesses in this centre. And as much as 8 eateries such as Purveyor Steakhouse, Redemption Burgers and EspressoLab just to mention a few. Good clean restrooms which cater for the disabled are available on different levels. The Silo is still here and there are lift which can get you to the 6th floor. There are ATM’s. Art Galleries, fashion boutiques and the list just goes on. This a nice venue to visit when you have guest from abroad because the layout and style is very international. We together with our guest real-lii enjoyed our visit here. We even got to try the pizzas at Purveyor Steakhouse……..NB! Oh the Wishing Well is still here for those who true-lii believe when they make a wish! Good Luck!.....

Impressive Market
Jan 2020
One of the best markets I have ever been to for prepared foods. Lots of delicious things available here and a few places to sit and eat them. Super popular, full of people having a great time. I was very impressed with the quality.

Enjoyable Saturday Morning
Mar 2020
We visited on a Saturday morning and spent a couple of hours browsing though found that most of the goods on stalls were pricier than similar items we'd seen in the tourist shops at the V&A.
Vast array of food stalls makes it hard, in a good way, to decide what to eat though, again, seemed pricey by SA standards.
Nice vibe to the place - sitting in the sunshine with a drink watching a band play.
Definately worth a visit

Very Expensive visit for South Africans
Mar 2020 • Couples
Be careful of Bumga Bumga foid stall. Very friendly chef. Ni prices on foods. When you ask him what the price is of the dish he is busy making tells you R250. Once you order and have to pay it is R500. Dedinatley not worth it. Just cabbage and a few sauces and few pieces of meat. I nearly collapsed at the price when I had to pay. But did have it out with him. Told him he is misleading the people.
