• Have you visited the Oranjezicht night market yet?

    Open from 5PM to 9PM, your Wednesday evenings are about to get even better. You’ll be able to stock up on some fresh produce and healthy whole foods to fill your pantry with local ingredients.

    There’s a holistic link between urban farming, Cape Town’s history and heritage, and a sense of place at the market. Local seasonal produce and transparent labelling uphold these values for a uniquely South African experience.

    Local food is lekker

    Food is at the forefront of the Oranjezicht market, and there are options for all! Vegans, vegetarians, and those with gluten or dairy intolerances are all catered for. Whole foods are the focus with healthy veggies, fruits, and more being available to purchase.

    The Oranjezicht Wednesday night market is full of your favourites: @yensvietnamesestreet, @kitchencowboys_sa, @plushiplatters, @lobster_mob, @ciao_ciao_deli, and more.

    Although the night market has limited fresh produce on sale, you’ll find Adene’s farm flowers, Thank Goodness and Stokkiesdraai Biltong.

    It’s a foodie paradise if you’re looking for fresh and healthy ingredient options that support local farmers and traders.

    Eco-friendly garden chic

    Indigenous plants and organic seeds are also available to purchase to help the environment. You can even find fertilisers for sale to help keep your plants and garden happy and healthy for the bees and fauna that visit.

    The market has a creative flair to serve both customers and traders. We put together some of our favourite sites from the night market we’re sure will entice you to visit it on Wednesday evenings for all your foodie needs.
