  • Not much to see or buy in my opinion. Somebody else may find it more interesting. Having already had breakfast elsewhere nothing caught my eye except maybe the coffee on sale.  more »
  • There are various delicious food stalls, craft beer and wine, etc. high quality craft stalls as well. Ample seating to sit and relax. We always find parking.  more »
  • Interesting market - good food! Art and tourists Schnick Schnack. Absolutely recommendable. The waffles were particularly class but also many other things invite to the try a. The market is always on Saturday from 9: 00.

  • Great for foodies. Good variety. Safe . lovely music. Mostly accept cash and Zapper etc. but there is an Atm on the premises. Great day to spend a Saturday morning in Stellenbosch.
  • Nice atmosphere, yummy foods to eat and buy. Definitely will be back again.
  • Great food. Stunning venue. Upmarket crowd. People of all ages. People charging for kuds to use a play area which was not that good or properly attended Whig kind of sucks big time. This should be offered free or done decently. Very very crowded market - lots more space is actually needed. I saw tempers flaring in parking area. This market is clearly a goldmine for the organizers and probably the stallholders - food stalls extremely busy. Not cheap - R35 for an ice cream. Not a flea market or really a place to find bargains.
  • What a pathetic way to waste my Saturday morning. Firstly, it was difficult to understand why you would come to Stellenbosch to buy the typical ho-hum African art. Not local art, which would have been wonderful, but mostly from West Africa. Meh. Then, two wine stalls. Really. You are in Stellenbosch and you have two wine stalls? With untrained and bored proprietors to boot. We did have some good Mediterranean food which we ate in the car, as there was no ambience, no live music and little reason to stay a moment longer. Where is Stellenbosch Tourism? Do they care that this is offered as a Stellenbosch brand? Tourists should rather go to visit good wine farms than waste their time or money on this snoozefest.
  • Hi guys. This market is closed for renovations. Therefor the 3. I will update it once I actually visited the market. Seems they will opening in September again.
