This is a fun place for foodies, but it gets way too busy! Get there early to beat the crowds and find a spot to sit and eat.

The Old Biscuit Mill is a trendy collection of shops with some really unique buys. From handmade ceramics and woodwork, to antiques and gifts, you are sure to find some treasure for your home or wardrobe. There is also a great restaurant, coffee shop and cellar for a relaxed afternoon lunch.

Vibrant market, amazing food. Get there early to eat as it gets incredibly crowded at lunchtime. Also take time to visit the Artisan workshops to pick up locally made crafts and jewellery. Taxi from Green Point was 70 Ran

Only open certain days of the week. We went on a Saturday . Numerous stalls selling all types of food and drink. Amazing.! Other side has little stalls selling clothes and souvenirs. A wonderful atmosphere, locals eat here regularly

The Old Biscuit Mill is an interresting place to visit (and a lot of interresting carachters hang out here too). The food market truly is amazing (ranging from fresh vegetable to chinese flavours and great selection for the sweet tooth), and craft beer is sold here too. There are a few shops that sells from cameras (polaroids included) to interior... More

Having read the reviews I can’t believe that anyone could have anything negative to say about the sat markets. Yes, parking is limited. Take a taxi or park 300m down the street. But this is one groovy market that ranks among the best in the world! The food is sensational and you will be spoilt for choice. I am from... More
