“Amazing experience”

Slow Market Stellenbosch
Ranked #2 of 20 Shopping in Stellenbosch

Attraction details
Reviewed 19 November 2013

I realy enjoy the Stellenbosch Slow Market. The music gives it a very lively vibe. It is perfect for a solo and couple outing. We did enjoy a family picnic there as well, but if you have a pram you will find it difficult to move through the crowd, then I would rather go to another market.

Overall the food is great, and you can have a tasting at most of the stand, which make the food experience better than the other markets.

The market has a good vibe and great food to choose from. Need to get there early to make sure there is still food left. On a beautiful day it can become very overcrowded and queues long. Finding seating can also be difficult but they have recently increased seating. Best waffles ever.

Good vibe, very good food and lots of local produce and crafts to buy! However this market has unfortunately outgrown itself and would benefit from a bigger venue - it really gets a bit crowded and on very hot summer days I usually avoid going, instead choosing other markets with more open spaces and shady seating. A nice experience though!

I find the market very well organised and well supported. The live music was a nice touch. I always do well and last Saturday was no exception. The many tourists are also a welcome site. I do suggest more aggressive marketing among the Cape Town audience, as many are not aware of this market. It is well marketed in the Stellenbosch area, but not in Cape Town. Many of the traders next to me complained bitterly, but I find that this happens every time I sell at the market. I'm not sure if this is just a "trader thing", to always complain, but I'm really happy and cannot fault the market in any way.

Great market with great vibe; amazing array of products and a well worthwhile ongoing visit, and of course for a breakfast, lunch, snack et al..
