Right on our own front door we find the Mojo Market in Sea Point, featuring forty-five designer retail stalls, a daily fresh goods section and twenty-five speciality food vendors.
It’s set up to allow for maximum indoor/outdoor flow with the pavement becoming the storefront and then transitioning into the indoor market. Indulge in ice-cream from Baskin Robbins or get All Thai’d Up for a zing of something spicy. There are clothes, accessories, trinkets and food, food and more food to choose from.
Kick back with an original Earthfire pizza and enjoy some of the live entertainment. This is definitely a “two-or-more visit” kind of market., you need to keep coming back :-)
This is one of those community garden success stories that turned into so much more. This market is held every Saturday in Granger Bay near the V&A Waterfront.
It’s a community-driven, farmers-style market for independent local farmers as well as artisanal food producers. You can easily do your weekly food shopping (veg, fruit, bread, organic dairy, free-range eggs, honey, muesli and much more) here.
There’s food to be had, both raw and cooked :-) Aside from these, customers can buy edible plants and seedlings, compost and gardening supplies and equipment and there are also plenty of activities for kids such as storytelling, planting, craft and yoga.
Set on the beautiful grounds of the Waldorf School in Constantia, this market is a veritable hub of all things healthy. Go feast your eyes and stomach on their huge range of veggies, juice, dairy, honey and preserves as well as a range products from Camphill.
The traders are all really friendly, knowledgeable and informative and will soon clear up any confusion about Organic vs. biodynamic, what does sustainable and permaculture mean? Are free range and fair trade the same thing?
Aside from all the produce you can also choose to relax while eating freshly prepared cakes and organic ice-cream or light meals, organic coffee and herb teas.
When: Every Friday between 11am and 3pm (not on public holidays or during school holidays)

This cheesery’s heritage is squarely based on one man's vision and many peoples execution, Rob Visser spent many years scouring the french countryside to find unique recipes and learn trade secrets at the feet of masters.
Amongst their many variations the core stock remains Brie, Camembert and Blue. These have spun off into unique and trademarked cheeses such as the Huguenot (Semi-hard, brushed rind style moulded into huge golden cartwheels), Boland (a semi-hard cheese with a hard rind made in the style of a Port Salut) and Lanquedoc (a semi soft washed rind cheese).
Located on the breathtaking Franschhoek-Simondium Road, the farm is awash with gorgeous, fawn-coloured, long-lashed Jersey cows who provide the key ingredient, milk from grass-fed cows!
