My best food market? Easy: Oranjezicht Farmer’s Market

There’s no shortage of wonderful food markets to explore in Cape Town. But Dax Villanueva, the writer behind local wine, lifestyle and travel blog Relax-with-Dax, has no problem picking out his favourite.

The Oranjezicht Farmers Market is definitely the best food market in the city.

These days it is based at The Lookout in the V&A Waterfront precinct. It is undercover but also has open spaces so it’s ideal for both rainy or sunny days. The view of the ocean adds a unique element.

It’s probably the best market for getting fresh veggies, but there are a lot of great stands selling things to take home.

When you’ve finished shopping there are plenty of food stands to grab a bite at and take in the vibe. There is normally music playing and the place is humming. It’s very social.
