Wild Oats is a local farmers and food market open every Saturday morning until 12 noon. We are located on the western outskirts of Sedgefield at the turnoff to Sedgefield Island. An award winning Garden Route landmark we are not to be confused with the Scarab Craft Market to the far east of Engen Petrol Station or the Mosaic Flea Market across the road from Wild Oats. As a food market, our open times are limited due to the short shelf-life of many of our LOCALLY PRODUCED products which include: Free-range chicken, beef, pork and lamb, free-range eggs, multiple cheese, dairy and baked products including fresh gouda, cheddar, blue-cheeses... milk, fresh fish, fruits, free-range & organic vegetables in season, many traditional and exotic bottled goods, organic olives, berries, rusks, koeksisters, biltong & wors, famous artisan breads, award-winning cheesecakes and goats cheeses... and on and on and on. Also a fabulous range of hot-off-the-grill breakfasts, coffees, teas and fresh-squeeze juices and smoothies. FOOD HEAVEN! Come face-to-face with our local food producers every Saturday morning, come rain or shine.

The vibe is definitely hippy. Unfortunately this market has nothing original. The clothes all look like they are coming from Asia. The little shops are really not remarkable....nothing new under the sun. Long queues to get food. Too many people. Too many cars. Was a huge disappointment. I really was expecting to find something truly local.

Hi CTandyou, You have definitely confused Wild Oats with one or both of the craft markets across the road from us (most likely the Mosaic Outdoor Flea Market). Wild Oats is a dedicated farmer/food producers market... no craft, no clothing, no hippies, nothing Asian!!! We have great pride in hosting only the best quality, local Garden Route food producers, no... More

We dropped into visit this well organizational farmers market in Sedgefield. My only criticism is that it closes too early during peak season. A suggestion during peak periods stay open at least till 2 pm.

This was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had in South Africa. On this rainy morning we floated past heavenly treats and fresh produce that will take your breath away. Eating pancakes and enjoying the crowds of people... Now I know why everyone in the area attends this market every single Saturday

Organic, free range, quality products, from bread, meat to vegatables, it is the ideal place for locals to stock and for visitors to experience. the food stalls are excellent, with a variety of good things to eat !! Don't miss Ronnie's German sausages on a roll. to die for !! have a dozen wild oysters with a glass of wine.... More

Having not visited the market for some years we were surprised to find how well attended it was and how many good food stalls there were. Excellent fruit, bread, organic veggies, lovely flowers and a very convivial atmosphere. Unfortunately we were let down by the lack of quality and care in the preparation of the farmer's breakfast and bacon croissants.... More

Hi Terrence. Thank you for your kind review... and we apologise for your unfortunate experience with the Farmers' Breakfast stall. You are right, the lack of top-quality has recently caught our attention... a change in procedures & real-time management have happened in the last month that have had an unsatisfying impact! The stall is currently under review as we endeavour... More

If I had lived in the garden route, it would be an every Saturday outing. Breakfasts were ready after 7am. Oh my hat the German cakes and sausages are to die for. Lots to buy and taste. The experience is out of this world. Pity Cape Town is so very far from this piece of treasure. You can spend all... More
