This popular food market takes place on Saturdays and has one of the best locations for a market anywhere, right on the sea near the V&A Waterfront. Under several marquees you'll discover a wide selection of organic produce, dried fruits, meats, eggs, chocolates, pastries, and much more, including prepared foods and specialty coffee brews, and there are open tables overlooking the sea where you can eat. You'll also find a section with crafts and plants, as well as community groups, among them an animal rescue team called Sidewalk Specials—just in case you want to adopt a pooch while you're there.
Oranjezicht City Farm is an urban farm and non-profit organization located in the heart of Cape Town. To understand what this garden symbolic you must look back to the 17th century, when Cape Town's city center was dotted with vegetable gardens fed by natural springs which flowed down from Table Mountain. Urban development swallowed up the majority of these green plots of land, however a small, neglected field in the Oranjezicht neighborhood remained. This space is now used as a the Oranjezicht City Farm and is run by volunteers who provide fresh produce for the surrounding community along with educational and hands-on gardening opportunities.
The farm is open daily (except Sunday) and guided tours are available, led by OZCF volunteers. The market runs every Saturday from 9am-2pm and is (temporarily) relocated from Homestead Park to Leeuwenhof.
