Great attraction in Cape Town
Feb 2020 • Couples
The old biscuit mill has some fascinating shops and great options for eating, either snacks or for a full blown meal at the Test Kitchen. A nice way to spend a couple of hours.

Go on Saturday if not don’t bother
Feb 2020 • Friends
If you don’t go in a Saturday then this isn’t worth seeing. On every other day it’s pretty basic and we saw every store in a matter of minutes. Next time I will go the correct day so I can leave a more accurate review.

Oh my God, the amazing place must visit especially Saturday during the day. You won't regret it the stalls, the food, clothes and arts. The atmosphere is great and the people are welcoming.*****

Lovely vibe

Loads to see, interesting food and individual crafts and goods. Lovely location, but very touristy and pricey.

Great Food Market on Saturdays
Jan 2020
Every Saturday there is a food market with a wide variety of foods and drinks. Get there early to catch the best foods before it is sold out.

A fun visit to a market
Feb 2020 • Couples
We spent a half day walking though out the market. The market is mostly shops of very nice South Africa goods. Plenty of food in both restaurants and venders. It was Saturday and very busy with tourists and local. A must to visited to Cape Town. The only negative was the expense of a Taxi to the central city. We didn’t have a uBer set up for return.
