The neatest market I have been to in a long time. Everything is beautifully and very well presented. A huge array of food to choose from and nice seating. Perfect family outing.

This is without a doubt the best market I have been too. I loved the layout, space to move between the extremely neat, clean and well put together stalls. The ground was covered in wood chips which kept the mud at bay, the dust under control, it was comfy to walk on and tidy at sight. The variety of food stalls offering scrumptious eats fit for all tastebuds was fabulous! With musicians on stage providing a delightful atmosphere whilst browsing through all the stalls offering beautiful and many a creative item which includes an interesting nursery, was a fantastic experience. This market has also catered for little children. The car park was well organised with car guards friendly directing whilst casting a watchful eye and the bathroom facilities super clean.

Just loved this place - everything about it - from the neat layout, to the waterjongens hosing down the dirt pathways to keep the dust down, to the myriad of things on offer, not only to take home but also to eat on site.Nothing brings on the appetite more than a bit of boerewors sizzling on the coals - and by George (no pun intended) there was enough food on sale to satisfy the most varied of tastes.
I came away with a really wicked bar of chocolate/chilli nougat as well as a jar of olives stuffed with garlic.Also bought a tray of the biggest, tastiest cling peaches that I have ever eaten - blemish -free and really superb ( thanks to the labour unrest in the SW Cape, us locals could get to experience some of the export quality fruit that our land is so famous for!) Another tray of fruit - this time, some hanepoort grapes also landed in our basket of goodies - all first grade standard, and at the most affordable prices. A visit to the nusery yielded some sturdy plants - and for the rest of the time, we were content to drift from stall to stall, chatting to the folk and generally, just enjoying the ambience. Children were enjoying tractor rides and the relaxed atmosphere made it very hard to leave. I think the good people of George need to be commended on their excellent market - its one of those places that need a revisit - for me, that can't be soon enough!

This market is wonderfully designed with something for every one. A little train and lots of trees and space to run around for the children.

Fresh produce is on sale.

The food stalls offer something for every taste, typical South African dishes interspersed with Thai, Italian, Greek and others.

The nursery is a lovely feature as are the art and clothing stalls.

It has a good atmosphere and the stall holders contribute on a personal level.

It is good to find a market that is not a Chinese reseller.

A lovely day out for the family with ample parking in a well ordered space.

Very nice market, great products for a good price.
Don't go on a windy day, market is in a sandy area, altough there are enough places to find shade.
