Top markets in the Cape Winelands

A selection of the best markets in the Cape Winelands

Last Update: January 9, 2017

It's no secret that the Cape Winelands are famous for producing world-class wines but these fertile valleys and mountain ranges are also home to a collection of delightful small towns and communities. Markets in the Cape Winelands are all about keeping it local from organic produce grown under the Mediterranean climate, to designers and charismatic markets sellers. You'll find that many of the markets in the Cape Winelands support their local community via initiatives for local producers and innovative school children, or educating the surrounding community.
