Safari Enquiry

The fresh food markets in Cape Town have a variety of different cuisines tailor-made for everyone’s specific needs and tastes. Adding to its class is a superb range of local wines produced in the stunning Cape Winelands, a popular tourist attraction itself.

The locals are very passionate about their food and you can experience this at the Neighbourgoods Market hosted at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock. The old brick warehouse and courtyard is home to over 100 traders offering farm-fresh produce. Here, you’ll be able to find natural, organic food here as well as a big variety of different fresh fruit and vegetables.

You can also experience the traditional Cape Malay cuisine at the Bo-Kaap Food and Craft Market. Immerse yourself in the culinary and cultural delights of the animated Bo Kaap community. Some of the foods you can taste are koeksisters, samoosas, dried fruit and smoked snoek.

Spend your Saturday mornings at the Stellenbosch Slow Food Market that offers a delightful mixture of culinary delights that make your mouth water. Here you can experience the fine local wines, but preserves and sample different types of foods and luxuries to tantalise your taste buds.

The variety of foods you’ll find at Cape Town’s markets are a result of its rich cultural heritage. When the Dutch arrived in Cape Town 17th century, they shared their farming expertise, planting and harvesting succulent vegetable crops and aromatic herb gardens that helped to feed many a starving sailor of the Dutch East India Company.

The Mother City’s flavour has evolved due to the influx of new and exciting residents from all over the world. German, Italian, Chinese, French, Portuguese and Flemish populations have added their own stamp to the variety of Cape Town’s local cuisine.
