About
IMAGINE ….. a place where the creative energy and the vibrancy of Cape Town come alive in an authentic fish factory in a working harbour …. where people of all ages and cultures gather alongside one another to celebrate our unique South African spirit …. where the hustle and bustle of a boisterous market fills the air …… where local traders exchange banter with customers …. “that’s a bargain, fo sho!” … an eclectic stylish wonderland of exquisite art, craft, jewellery and fashion …. complemented by the delicious aromas of food to tempt all the senses…freshly baked breads, spicy seafood and citrus fruits … you pass a robotic mime drawing gasps from giggling kids … the sound of a township guitarist and a groovy sax …… punctuated by singing seagulls …. where the famous beauty of Chapman’s Peak looms overhead ………. and the vibe is just sommer lekker!

A very nice market in a beautiful setting, but I felt it offers a pretty similar experience to some of the other markets near Cape Town, such as the weekend market at Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock.

We enjoyed the time we spent at the market. There is quite a variety of food stalls. Coffee, wine, waffles and craft beer. The stalls have interesting art and goodies from local artist. You can leisurely stroll through the market, as it is inside there is no wind and sun to move you along faster. Different tipes of cuisine is served. There is also a bakery with fresh artisan breads and other baked goodies.
The live music keeps you entertained as you sit down at the tables and benches while you enjoy your freshly prepared food.
We had a lovely time

The market is still recovering from the Covid close-down but many of the stalls are back up and running and the merchandise is excellent quality, typically South African fare made by craftsmen or homegrown chefs and gardeners. A lovely outing offering really good food, drinks and shopping for home or gifting. Lovely vibe for the weekend

This is a small market on the bay. There are several restaurants nearby with views over the bay. NIce place for a meal / coffee. There are also often seals by the market.

We were told about this market by our guest house owners, and we were hugely surprised by the size and bustle of the market.
Lots of really interesting stalls which then moved into a great food and drink area. We had already booked a restaurant for the evening and felt we'd missed out by not being able to partake of one of the food stalls
