Attraction details
Owner description: Wild Oats is a local farmers and food market open every Saturday morning until 12 noon. We are located on the western outskirts of Sedgefield at the turnoff to Sedgefield Island. An award winning Garden Route landmark we are not to be confused with the Scarab Craft Market to the far east of Engen Petrol Station or the Mosaic Flea Market across the road from Wild Oats. As a food market, our open times are limited due to the short shelf-life of many of our LOCALLY PRODUCED products which include: Free-range chicken, beef, pork and lamb, free-range eggs, multiple cheese, dairy and baked products including fresh gouda, cheddar, blue-cheeses... milk, fresh fish, fruits, free-range & organic vegetables in season, many traditional and exotic bottled goods, organic olives, berries, rusks, koeksisters, biltong & wors, famous artisan breads, award-winning cheesecakes and goats cheeses... and on and on and on. Also a fabulous range of hot-off-the-grill breakfasts, coffees, teas and fresh-squeeze juices and smoothies. FOOD HEAVEN! Come face-to-face with our local food producers every Saturday morning, come rain or shine.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities, Wheelchair access, Food available for purchase

Really worth a visit on a Saturday morning. Everything you need for a picnic basket - fresh bread, sausages, samoosas, olives, cheeses, vegetables, desserts - all local produce from talented producers in the area. Do not miss this.

Let me start off by saying that I do not like markets. I despise flee markets most of all. So I am very critical when it comes to the open air shopping experience. However, this is a very nice market with delicious and top quality food. All organic and tasty stuff. Prices are good too. Problem is, we went the day before christmas.This meant that everyone in the Southern Cape was there and it was too crowded to breathe. Each stall had a waiting line. So, pick your day carefully but do go. It is worth it.

Top tip for this market is get there early! The parking soon fills up (there is plenty though!) Head right through to the breakfast stalls- so tasty and very reasonably priced. Grab a seat under an umbrella and watch the hustle and bussle. After enjoying the food and great coffee, wander around the stalls picking up delicious local produce, a lot is organically grown. There is also lots of home made cakes, rusks, etc. Flower stalls, health foods, and soaps are worht a look at too.
Afterwards cross the car park and visit the scarab arts and crafts market for a lot of good quality souvenirs and clothing.

I have been vacationing in Sedgefield for over 20 year and the real highlight for a city slicker like myself is the Wild Oats Farmers Market.
From plants and wonderful fresh flowers to German cold meats and of course other meat , dairy products , wonderful breads, olives fresh fruit, vegetables and stunning cakes and savouries. Of course breakfast is a must and it is a pleasure to see the waste being recycled. We are heading off their in November again and I can't wait to enjoy this mouthwatering experience.
