Cape Town’s reputation for good food, fine wine and a buoyant gastro culture is word-renowned. Every Saturday morning, you can get close up and personal with a vast range of South Africa’s organic and local produce at the Neighbourgoods Farmer’s Market. The market stretches out over Albert Road in Woodstock, an up and coming inner-city area that is rapidly gentrifying and becoming Cape Town’s creative hub. Galleries, artist’s workshops and specialist shops are springing up, and the Neighbourgoods market reflects Woodstock’s inventive spirit and vitality. Started by a New Yorker and local Capetonian, over 120 stalls make up the Neighbourgood’s market with street food stalls, musicians, make-shift tea rooms and trestle table cafes and an overriding festive atmosphere making it a real destination worth coming to whether you plan to cook at home or not. Should you do, you’ll find the best produce and home-baked goodies the Cape has to offer, from purveyors that have a contagious enthusiasm for what they do. From exotic fruits and vegetables, bunches or fresh herbs and flowers, large rounds of organic cheeses, hand-bottled organic olive oil, freshly baked breads and cakes and jars or chutneys, sauces and marmalades (great for taking back home) Cape Town’s Neighbourgood’s market will leave you salivating. Many of the treats can be eaten whilst simply strolling around, and before you leave don’t forget to visit the adjacent design market. Cape Town’s emerging art, craft and fashion scene is on display here, from handmade eco shoes to children’s clothes and furniture.
