  • 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 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.
  • Good family experience. Was there for Japan centenary celebration activities. Worth the drive. Set in beautiful surroundings near the mountains.
  • Nice market. It can get very hot at Stellenbosch so go early. One gripe; this hairpin which is about 4 inches long - on sale for R200!!! Rip off. That's a day's wages for a lot of people and clearly a price adjusted for tourists. So beware. Cape Town wasn't like this a few years ago but its rapidly becoming a tourist rip off.
  • Went for the Japan festival. Very cool but insanely busy and narrow. Difficult to move through the crowds at points.
  • Great vibe! Good prices! Nice variety but maybe think of introducing more variety in vegan foods!
