On Saturdays , The Old Biscuit Mill, in Woodstock, Cape Town, has their “Neighbourgoods Market” from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. All the shops are open. The shops include some hip shops, vintage clothing, some retro furniture, and pottery. The market has food stalls and fresh produce, beer, and fro yo (frozen yogurt for those out of the loop).
It is for is more well-to-do, slightly hipster crowd. You kinda have to dress up because it is somewhat of a fashionable crowd.
We really enjoyed the experience, although the crowds were a little overwhelming for the hubby. We'd go back, but we fit in a little better at the Milnerton flea market. What does that say about us...?
Here are some images of my walk through the market area:
|Mmm. Fresh butter and hunks of cheese. First thing you see when you walk in.|
|Fresh baked bread. They were selling it out of a small cargo trailer.|
|Mushrooms I had never seen before!|
|Fresh paella. These were huge pans!|
|Some of the first bagels we've seen here. Wonder how they taste.|
|Yummy looking treats.|
|Chocolate salami, anyone?|
|These were planters made out of old pitchers and strung from the ceiling. Never seen that.|
|Orchids. Tempting, but why buy something that I'll end up killing?|
We had a great weekend- I hope you did too!
