“So much to try!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

This market is fantastic. There's a huge range of foods in this market and the people are so lovely. You can try little bits and bobs before you buy and the food is lush.
My personal favourates were the biltong and samosas!

“Great place”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We came across this place whist around the Q and A.Its very quaint and has lots of different food outlets and a bar upstairs.
We opted to try the Thai food stall on the 2nd floor and also the "Real" burger stall.
Both were very tasty and good value all washed down with a beer from the bar.

“Great for food and beer”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

A lovely indoor market with lots of stalls selling food and upstairs a bar with a range of drinks, including craft beer. We had a great wrap from a stall downstairs and took it up to have with a beer, then grabbed a cupcake for dessert.

“Great Options”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

If you're traveling with a group, this is a good place to stop...lots of options! I'd recommend going to the Salad bar (can't remember the name)...some of the best salads EVER...seriously.

“Great vibe ”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Went to this market with my family for first time. Word of advice, Go hungry. Good variety of food stalls selling everything from gourmet samosas to rabbit. Bar upstairs sells some delicious craft beer and there are screens up for sports lovers. Place has a great vibe and the sound system really pumps in the late afternoons. Well worth a stroll through. There are ATMs upstairs which is handy as some of the stalls only take cash
