Weekly Markets in Cape Town

Cape Town is absolutely in love with markets. In Summer you see them pop up everywhere like mushrooms, and when it rains there are always indoor markets to keep you warm. There are all kinds of markets too like food and wine markets, craft markets and markets that have nothing but antiques and collectables. Even if you don’t plan on buying anything some of these markets are definitely worth a visit just for the ambiance as they often have live music and delicious food. Cape Town’s markets are the best place to just chill and enjoy the day with about a thousand other chill strangers.

Cape Town has no shortage of markets and you can find all kings of things at these markets, but amongst all the choices there are a handful of markets that really stand out above the rest. You can expect to find high quality goods here, some home made, really delicious food and of course live music. These are my favourite markets in Cape Town...

1. The Blaauwklippen Family Market 

This Family market is held in a stunning wine estate and boasts a delectable selection of foods, craft beer, wines and entertainment. You can even make a weekend getaway out of it and book at one of the guest houses or hotels near by.

When: Every Sunday from 10am to 3pm

Where: The Blaauwklippen Wine estate

2. Stellenbosch Street Soiree

While this isn’t actually over the weekends, it is something worth enjoying. The Stellenbosch Street Soirees happen during the summer months only. The streets of the quaint little town of Stellenbosch become one big party and everyone plays along. The restaurants and local musicians all come together to set the perfect vibe for a Summer day.

When: from the 25th January to 22 March

Where: Stellenbosch

3. The Neighbour Goods Market at The Old Biscuit Mill

The Neighbour Goods Market is one of my favorite markets because of the incredible variety of quality food and crafts available here. This Market is actually set up in and around an old biscuit mill, hence the name. You’ll find some craft and local designer made goods here, but the real drawing card is the food section. They have everything from fresh fruit juices to Chinese food that’s absolutely divine. If you love markets as much as I do then you have to pay this one a visit. You wont regret it. If you are a foodie then this is the place to go. The market often boasts live music and because it is mostly covered it is open during the winter months too which is a huge bonus.

when: Every sunday 9am – 2pm


4. The Mojo Market

The mojo market is the new kid on the block when it comes to Cape Town’s markets, having opened in 2016. But this market is buzzing with vibrant stalls, music, crafts and the smell of delicious food. The Mojo Market is open 7 days a week and some of the food stalls are open till very late. It’s the ideal spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or craft beer and chill, enjoying local musical talent. to find out about their music lineup take a loot at the Mojo Market website or their Mojo Markets Face Book page

When: open every day

Where: Regent Road, Sea point

5. Bay Harbour Market

The Bay Harbour market is a trendy little market in Hout Bay. they often have live music and you can find all kinds of food, coffees, craft beer, craft goods and even some vintage stuff. I like visiting it just for the vibe.

When: every Friday 5 – 9pm and Saturday/Sunday 9.30am – 4pm

Where:  31 Harbour Road; Hout Bay

There are quite a few markets in Cape Town, but these are my favorite because of the variety, vibe, and products available. My top 4 go-to markets in Cape Town though have to be the ‘made in the Cape’; ‘The Watershed’; The Bay Harbour’ and the ‘Neighbor goods’ markets. Rainy Day markets are the best, though there is so much more to do in Cape Town when it rains, you just have to know the right spots and spaces 😉
