The Oranjezicht City Farm (OZCF) is an educational non-profit project...

The Oranjezicht City Farm (OZCF) is an educational non-profit project celebrating local food, culture and community through urban farming in Cape Town. Located on a small remnant of the site of an historic farm dating to 1709 with a perennial freshwater spring that has drawn people for many thousands of years, OZCF seeks to re-connect the Oranjezicht neighbourhood and the rest of Cape Town to this neglected piece of heritage through education, gardening activity and outreach, and to use it as a catalyst to build social cohesion across communities, to develop skills among the unemployed, to educate residents and their children and others about food, environmental and related issues, to beautify public space and to champion unused or under-utilised green spaces in the City Bowl. Volunteers and visitors are welcome Monday - Saturday and tours are available by request in advance. Saturdays from 9am-2pm OZCF also operates a community farmer's market for independent local farmers and artisanal food producers at another site in Granger Bay at the V&A Waterfront. At the OZCF Market customers can do weekly food shopping (veg, fruit, bread, organic dairy, free-range eggs, honey, muesli, etc), try out some delicious cooked and raw foods and be inspired about helping to build an alternative food system. Additionally, customers can buy edible plants and seedlings, compost and gardening supplies and equipment. Market traders make every effort to create links between the OZCF, history/tradition and a sense of place, through labelling, using seasonal produce, etc. Educational talks and events are linked to the market and there are plenty of activities for kids such as story telling, planting, craft, yoga and more.

Breakfast under a magnificent blue sky - we had a crepe with the works, prosciutto, egg, cheese, tomato and avocado. Freshly squeezed juice. The most amazing brownies, cheese biscuits- the list goes on. You have to do this - get there early.

The organisation have done an amazing job of creating this urban market garden. It's beautifully maintained and full of produce. I picked up several ideas from the garden and it was great talking to the staff. My husband had a quick look round and then read on a shady bench which I think would be the attitude of many people.... More

I thought the previous location for this market was pretty special but the relocation is pretty good. Much more open air and not as crowded as the Biscuit Mill in Salt River which although has some fabulous stalls it can become so busy that you can become a bit hot and bothered in the high season. Parking is plenty so... More

The tented Saturday market is at the end of the Waterfront, closest to the Cape Town Stadium. There are loads to choose from: fresh fruit & veg, freshly squeezed juice, most delicious food, etc. Seating inside or shaded seating outside, with a view of the sea. Pet friendly Don't be in a hurry, as you will need a lot of... More

PLUS! It's outdoors so no one smells ;) Large selection of take home fair as well as "eat me now 'cause I am too delicious" varieties. Kid friendly, good music and safe. Magnitude of organic food, dairy free, sugar free, wheat free, vegetarian... all are satiable. Lovely little break from chain stores close to mainstream attractions.

I've been a fan since I first saw them at the Waterfront and go at least once a month for a browse and brunch. There is always something new to try. Great selection of fresh veggies and sugary delights to take home and enjoy. Plenty of breads, cheeses, olives, dips and preserves to choose from. On the "eat now" front,... More

When you live in such a nice place as Cape Town you don't expect on top of everything to find an organic food farm in town that sell the most amazing products. Well this is the place !
