Outdoor food lover's market with several different types of international cuisine and foodstuff. Nice, lively atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Can get a bit packed closer to noon but overall a must have experience when visiting Capetown.

Spent a few pleasant hours here wine tasting, and wondering around. Not a huge market but great food and good vibe.

We had a wonderful time at the Biscuit Mill! Vibrand vibes! Lots of people! Wine and beer galore! You can pick and choose what you want to eat from lots and lots of food stalls. Banting, Vegan, Chinese, hamburgers, fresh salads cakes chocolates...... etc etc. The only problem is the parking. We had to walk quite a distance. Police warned... More

If you happen to be in Cape Town on a Saturday morning, this should be on your list. A huge variety of good food to choose from, prepared there and then, as well as craft beer, wine or health juice. Also some beautiful hand made crafts, like jewelry, leather goods etc. Vibey and busy.

My wife and I visited the Old Biscuit Mill on a Saturday morning and it was great. Excellent variety and great stores. The views of Cape Town from 2 of the vantage points was absolutely amazing.

For breakfast we had steak roll from kitchen Cowboys! And the Kobe Beef burger, cannot compare the two. They were both so amazing! But the coffee has to be on top of my list! From Origin. Wow!!! Must have!! ☕️

If you want to eat all sort of things stemming from different countries (plenty of food stations), it's the place to go. The atmosphere is amazing, but packed with people.. there is a wide range of art shops, craftsmen etc.. come here only if you don't mind when there are many people... Indeed it's very difficult to have a seat... More

Open on Saturdays only. Many stores and food for all tastes. Nice restaurants and bars. Parking a challenge if not early. Secure parking available. Get too busy at times so early wake up.

Old Biscuit Mill is best place to go on Saturday morning. Go around 8am already. Some stalls will only open around 8:30 but it's not too crowded then.
