The Old Biscuit Mill



In recent years, there has been a burgeoning market culture in Cape Town, which is thanks largely to the now famous Old Biscuit Mill. What started out as a small neighbourhood market in a disused biscuit mill has now become the place to see, be seen, and dine on the finest, hand-crafted foods on a Saturday morning.

The Old Biscuit Mill is situated in the vibey suburb of Woodstock, and is still considered Cape Town's premier market for local and organic foods, cheeses, breads, specialty fine-food, locally designed clothes, beer and live entertainment.

The market kicks off early on a Saturday morning as descend to find the ultimate hangover cures in fresh coffee, pastries, or another cold craft beer. As the day heats up, expect loyal locals, excited tourists and new out of towners to arrive, all looking to cure their hunger pangs, savour delectable samples from the various stalls, and just immerse themselves in the buzzing atmosphere that defines this incredible Cape Town market. And while there are now more than enough markets to choose from in the Mother City, there's no escaping the fact that the original is still the best, and a visit to the OBM on a Saturday morning will prove just that.

The Neighbourgoods Market runs Saturdays from 9am - 2pm.
