  • Was disappointed to find this venue only open on a Saturday which we returned for and we were not disappointed - perfect for tasting any and every cuisine imaginable well worth a visit  more »
  • Location available from several exhibitors and also several tents with the most varied types of food. It's very crowded, especially tourists, but it's worth a pass there. Remembering it only works on Saturdays.

  • A very fun place to go on Saturdays because a large variety of vendors come out to make this place a market. Lots of fun on those days because there is music, shopping from local vendors, and TONS of food options from small stands. The rest of the stores that are open all week long are nice as well, though they are mostly expensive novelty items like designer clothes, gift shop items, and stickers/prints.
  • Recommend coming here on a Saturday for the market. Some nice and unique shops if you're looking to purchase gifts to take home. Two of Cape Towns best restaurants (The Test Kitchen and The Potluck Club) are also located here.
