Description

In this tour, you will enjoy a scenic route drive to and from the markets with a knowledgeable guide. You will get the opportunity of meeting vibrant and trendy people. I will show you the best spots to shop and how to barter for your goods.

First, we will visit the Milnerton Flea Market, one of Cape Town’s oldest, largest, and most iconic informal fairs and heaven for irredeemable hoarders and deal seekers. If you are looking for recycled stuff and unusual surprises, then this market is just for you. This place is also worth a visit if you are interested in treasure hunting local new and old stuff. The market opens on Saturdays and Sundays.

Next, we will visit the OZCF Market, which opens every Sunday, Wednesday, and Saturday at the historic Granger Bay site of the V&A Waterfront. It is a community farmers-style market for independent local farmers and artisanal food producers. People usually purchase food items like vegetables, fruits, bread, organic dairy, free-range eggs, honey, muesli, etc., from this market. Yow will try some delicious cooked and raw foods and be inspired about helping to build an alternative food system. Additionally, people also buy edible plants and seedlings, compost and gardening supplies and equipment from this market.

Finally, we will visit the Old Biscuit Mill Market, a vibrant community in the heart of Woodstock, where talented people come together to share, collaborate, and show off their heartfelt passions. It is home to dynamic office spaces, a range of workshops and designer stores, decadent restaurants, food stalls as well as an inspiring line-up of day and night-markets, festivals, and productions. You will get the opportunity to meet some of South Africa’s most innovative and creative designers, artists, photographers, and connoisseurs of fine taste and décor

Moreover, the Mill – as it’s affectionately known – houses some of the city’s most charming architecture and, since its revitalisation over 10 years ago, has secured its spot as one of Cape Town’s favourite destinations.
