The Biscuit Mill is a popular Saturday morning event and you can expect to find the entire Woodstock area flooded with people. If you can find a way to get here without having to find parking your day will be far more enjoyable. Food is interesting and always delicious. Trendy jewellery and clothes are also in abundance. Bring a BIG wad of cash as this is not a cheap outing, but is mostly worth the money you will spend. Also, there is only one ATM and you will spend the whole day in the line without having brought cash with you. Not a place for people who struggle with crowds. It is especially packed on sunny days.

The Old Biscuit Mill has to be one of the best places and spaces in Cape Town that always delivers.
Love the stuff you can do there and the people who go there - a must do in Cape Town, any day of the week, but particularly on weekends!

a morning at the old biscuit mill is worth a visit - there's lots of food and drink to try out and it's always full of people. However, its precisely because it's usually so full of people that you'll either love it or hate it. Standing with food and drink in hand, you'll have to keep your eyes open for an open seat at one of the tables and dash across to get it before someone else does... If you're not one for crowded spaces, you'd probably prefer the Hout Bay market, which is very similar, but more spacious...

This is a great place to visit on a Saturday (although it's a bit manic) and also nice (and calmer) during the week - without the market though.
A couple of great restaurants too.
