There are a lot of food markets around Cape Town – which is more then amazing – but my favourite one is still the Oranjezicht city farm market next to the Waterfront. I love to hang out there on Saturday mornings while enjoying the amazing food and the sea-view, watching people, talking to the farmer and listening to great music.
WHERE? Address Oranjezicht City Farm Market
Granger Bay, V&A Waterfront (Next to The Lookout Event Venue)
There are 250 surface parking bays available adjacent to the market for R10 per day – first come, first serve principe
WHEN? Opening Hours
Every Saturday 9am to 2pm (all weather)
WHAT? Market Introduction
The market is a community farmers-style market for independent local farmers and artisanal food producers. At the Oranjezicht market you can do weekly food shopping (veg, fruit, bread, organic dairy, free-range eggs, honey, muesli etc) and try out some delicious cooked and raw foods. So delicious, believe me!!
There are communal tables provided for visitors to eat (also with sea-view) and they – what I didn’t know – also provide free wi-fi!
The market offers fresh, locally grown vegetables, fruit, herbs and other pantry items like bread, cheese, nuts, olive oil, spices, yoghurt, honey, ethically sourced meats, biltong, fish, and more. One of the best things is, that you can try the different products before you buy them, which means you can spent hours while tasting all of these amazing organic products. The amazing “fruit/vegetable section” is located in the second tent, by the way.
My favourite tent is the third tent, because there you will find the best food for breakfast and lunch. There are smaller food stalls and a indoor communal seating area (especially for rainy days). The food on show caters for absolutely everyone’s tastes, and is so delicious and fresh. My favourite stall is the one with the pies, which are – in my opinion – the best pies in the world. Go and try it!!
The outdoor area is also more then amazing. There are numerous tables with sea view, amazing music and lovely farmers to talk too. I love absolutely everything about this market! Hope to see you there soon!!
