Markets in Cape Town (2022 List)

Updated: Aug 1

Cape Town loves a good market, not only are Markets a great place to socialise they have become the hub of street food and a variety of artisanal small brands.

No matter what kind of market you are looking for, Cape Town has it all. Cape Town Markets range from food markets, crafts, second-hand antiques as well as specialist gifts.

In this article, we are going to highlight some of our favourite markets and why.

Mojo Market

Unlike most markets in Cape Town that operate over weekends, Mojo market has a fixed home in Sea Point. What is great about this market is that it is indoors with a wide variety of restaurants, craft stores and eateries.
