“Fun place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We spent an afternoon wandering around the market area. It was bustling with activity and a fun way to spend a few hours poking about and stopping for a snack and a drink.

“Certainly worth the trip form Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

If you are at the waterfront going to this market or the biscuit mill may take the same time, I recommed this one. It is "only" a small storage hall but the inside is crammed with artisanal goods of all kinds (clothing, pealr animals, stuffed animals, food, decoration, furniture....) and all that we looked at handcrafted in South Africa.

If this was not enough there are ample of footstands offering very well tasting and freshly prepared foods for absolutely cheap prices.

Add to that the freindly customers and the friendly salespeople you can spend easily 2 hours having fun, discovering new items or simply indulging.

Parking was ample and as it isi indoors it is good for both too much sun and rain.

“Good food and good music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Go there for a quick bite to eat, or stay longer and enjoy the live music and cheerful vibe. The market can get very busy and seating is quite limited, so go early if you want a good spot. Not really child friendly but great for the young adult or “young at heart” to go and enjoy good food with friends.

“Excellent Place to Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

The Entrepreneur who came up with the idea for this place, really had an excellent plan. He/She converted a dis-used warehouse into a booming market. Open three days a week, they a variety of food stalls and clothing/jewellery stalls.

The selection of food stalls was brilliant: Chinese, Fish&Chips, Burgers, Waffles, Pizzas, really impressive.

Will definately be back. Just make sure you take cash. I think some of the stalls takes cards, but not all.

“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Really nice market in Hout Bay ,it has some really nice stalls to look at plus a really nice food market plus a decent coffee as well. We combined it with a boat trip to see the seals as well so it could be worth seeing what time the boats leave so you don't waste to much time
