Experience a typical market day in Cape Town on this 4.5-hour tour to the Oranjezicht City Farm Market and Neighbourgoods Market. With a guide, explore these two venues where local farmers and artisanal food producers sell seasonal produce. Feel free to purchase any food items that interest you. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included from the city center.
After hotel pickup, your Cape Town market tour starts at the Oranjezicht City Farm Market, held every Saturday at the historical Granger Bay site at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. This is a community farmers'-style market where independent farmers and small-batch food producers link urban farming to Cape Town's heritage with their seasonal produce. You can mingle with locals while they do their weekly shopping for vegetables, fruit, bread, organic dairy, free-range eggs, honey, muesli, and more, and try out various cooked and raw foods (own expense) while you get inspired about helping to build alternative food systems. Edible plants and seedlings as well as compost, gardening supplies, and equipment are also available for purchase.Then head to your second market, the Neighbourgoods Market. Enjoy a lively atmosphere, good food and designer and specialty produce in the heart of Woodstock, a neighbourhood of creative energy. Held weekly on Saturdays in the historic sky-lit warehouse of The Old Biscuit Mill, the Neighbourgoods Market is an exciting combination of food, fresh produce, design and fashion items exhibiting South African creativity and flavour. Browse the wide variety of local farmers’ and micro-merchants’ produce, delight in plenty of delicious eats and treats, and browse the selection of local arts, crafts and creative gear on offer.
Your tour ends with return to your pickup location.
