I visited the market with a friend on a Sunday morning. There are some interesting shops at the market but it’s abit small compared to some of the other markets in and around Cape Town. Food selection also limited.

This market is a must - for the trinkets, food, wine, vibe, everything under one roof. Also try the beer place round the corner. Always very entertaining.

Lots of shopping with typical bartering. Seals on the beach, be prepared with a coin or two for the guys feeding them. Take it or leave it stop, bathrooms and coffee is available.

Just a local food market nothing to shout about. Make up your own mind. I feel it more for the locals than the tourist.

Vibrant and full of life on a Friday evening. Parking was plentiful and convenient - leave the parking warden a R5 tip to watch your car. Little stores were selling a jumbled assortment of trinkets, art and clothing that would do great for souvenirs. Food...More
