Saturday morning and its always a hustling and a bustling at the Ol' Mill. The variety of eats and drinks and catching up with friends for brunch is just sublime..... and to shop to take some unusual treats to friends or even to one's own home offers diversity. Freshness. The atmosphere is fabulous, too much to sample from the genuine... More

The Old Biscuit Mill- everyone loves it. Everything is on offer on Saturdays from fresh organic food to wine, beer, flowers...you name it! It's such a vibe and is crammed with locals and tourists alike all having the best time. During the week it's open for business as well with a few top end stores selling wares like ceramics, clothing,... More

What a nice little farmers market. Packed with fresh produce, baked goodies, freshly made eats, biltongs etc. I suggest heading over early, as it can get really crowded and pretty unpleasant later in the morning. Also quite difficult to find parking when arriving late. Not cheap but worth seeing. Cute stalls and goodies to see too.

The Old Biscuit Mill has a lot to offer: food, drink, jewellery, clothing. Parking, however, isn't abundant and traffic can be an issue. The market tends to get full and there is limited seating. Best to get here early.

Went on a saturday to catch the market. I would advise going as early as possible as parking is a nightmare! This place is filled to the brim with top quality produce. Its quirky, youthful and has a buzzing atmosphere. The food and crafts were of a very good standard, and would make perfect presents. Even without buying, a browse... More

We got there early on Saturday morning 9:05am and still had to park a little down the road - this is worth it. There is a wide offering of speaicalst food for gorumet types. Huge selection of cuisines - go hungry. The place fills up fast though, better stay for lunch and really pig out.

I wanted to see Old Biscuit Mill without the crowds of the Saturday Neighbourhood Market. It would seem however that the food market is the key to this attraction's success. The decor / craft shops mostly felt the same - same style of product etc. The staff inside the decor shops were disinterested and glued to their phones. Some didn't... More

Lovely place to walk around, variety of things to purchase. Only problem was the parking. Had to walk quite far when I eventually found parking, but well worth the visit!
