The Woodstock section has many artisans who have their unique wares for sale, including in the Old Biscuit Mill. There are leather goods, hand crafted... More

We were in Cape Town for eleven days and went two times to this amazing feast of artisan foods! Go on a Saturday morning for the weekly Neighborhoods Market but get there early because the place gets packed and the food goes quickly! Delicious!

Old Biscuit Mill is a fantastic place to spend a Saturday afternoon. They have a live jazz band that is so much fun to see and hear. The food vendors have an amazing selection of fresh food. And the shops are higher quality than the usual tourist items.

An interesting range of items to experience and a great repurposing of the old building spaces. Areas of live music and food as well as stalls/ shops. Make sure to roam the nearby shops and alleys where a wide variety of intersting goods are available. Within the formal flea market/ shop space of the Mill I found prices to be... More

I was luckyb enough to be in tbe area Saturday morning to try market day at the Biscuit Mill. Products for sale seems a bit pricey by Capetown standards but I enjoyed people watching. Be warned that many of the vendors are cash only - Parking is hard. Come early or be prepared to walk a distance from where you... More

As a frequent CT visitor it had to happen. A visit to one of the hottest attractions in town. Well... Not special enough to,take the detour. Parking is a mess. The food market could have been anywhere. I know places that are more interesting. The shops are not outstanding... Disappointment

Apparently this is the place to be on Saturday mornings. That is if you are white and rich. The prices are quite high compared to other places, but then again the quality is sky high. In Denmark I would compare it to Torvehallerne. It is fun to see though if you can deal with the massive amount of people and... More
