Wide variety of foods and crafts produced by local farmers and artisans. Every type of food from braai to vegan to sushi! The stall-holders are also very friendly and enjoy explaining the background to their products. This is my 'must-do' when I'm in the Cape area visiting my family.

This market opens at 9 am so I recommend going at the start and having your breakfast there before the crowds build up. Easy to find and ample parking in the shade under the trees. Maybe have a quick wander round first then settle down to breakfast from one of the stalls, there is plenty of choice of different foods... More

You don't know where to go on Saturday morning ?? Spend few hours with local people ,eat local prepared food, buy home made bread, cheese, jam, salami or some crafts. Don't just walking around with your camera because this is not a Tourist attraction but local Saturday market.

As I live to eat, any food market in Cape Town is on my to-do-list. The Slow Market is beautifully located in among the vineyards with ample parking. Make sure you get there early to avoid the crowds and the heat. The market is well balanced with a selection of beautifully crafted clothing, jewelry, art work, handbags and soft home... More

This is a trendy viby market, the food is always amazing, with a huge selection to choose from. If there is a down side it is that the items for sale tend to be a little pricy for fleet market goods in the summer moths then drop off again in winter.

It was too crowded at 11am to really enjoy it. Quite a few of the vendors were already sold out by then and we were unable to procure anything we had come specifically to purchase. I suspect if you are there to shop, you should show up the second it opens and get what you want and get out before... More

This is a beautiful outdoor market where you can buy your food and wine and eat it under the beautiful trees. There is a variety of stalls for you to browse and buy quality products at very good prices. This is a perfect place to spend your Saturday morning!
