One of the best parts about living in the Mother City is the abundance of beautiful Cape Town markets, each with their own charm and offering. It’s such an easy thing to do to get you out of the house and to explore a new area and I’m finding it quite fun.
So I have decided to put together a list of markets I visit and love so that you can visit and love them too. This is a working post and I’ll update it each time I visit a new one worth mentioning, so please make sure you’re following me on social media to be kept updated (links on the right hand panel of blog).
