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

This market is by far, one of the best in Cape Town. especially offers a festive vibe over the holiday season. It offers such a wide variety of products on sale, from fresh vergetables to fresh flowers, a simple range of hats to some very pretty jewellry. Plenty on offer of Art and crafts. A varied range of clothing, and many outlets of a varied range of delectable foods....
Whilst strolling the ailes, you can nibble on a delicious pancake, or a steak roll, and many options of seafood! Whatever really tickles your fancy! There is limited seating availble, but you can sitat tables and enjoy a glass of wine or beer, with one of many hot and varied meals on offer, or a glass of bubbles and a plate of fresh oysters. Or tea and coffee, and a delicious slice of cake!Some days, the market even offers live music, check to see which musicians will be playing,- the more popular artists usually play on a friday evening!
The market caters for families as well as yooung trendy people! It really is a great outing! Get there early to avoid the crowds!

We loved he vibe of this very funky market, although targetting foreigners with their prices! Loved the good food, ambience, and variety of goods on sale. Will definitely be back for more!

There are lots of informal traders selling items from sea shells to shark teeth. One may find it interesting to watch the fishing boats coming in and the boats contents being bargained over. A resident attraction is the enormous male seal that a local hand feeds, for a small monetary contribution he will entice the seal to do all sorts of antics. The man offers visitors a piece of fish to feed the seal too! Remember though that this is a wild animal and that you do so at your own risk. There are good eating establishments in a walking distance.
