Top Food and Craft Markets Outside Cape Town

Take a day trip to these out-of-town markets and discover treasures further afield

Last Update: 24 August

Cape Town's surrounds are for nature lovers, adrenaline junkies, history lovers and hard workers in need of a countryside respite. However, what you may not know is that they’re also home to some amazing food and craft markets, with goods unique to the area. You'll find plenty of markets in historic harbours, quaint villages, valleys and close to stunning lakes. They are hives of activity, bustling with live entertainment and more mouth-watering delicacies, breakfasts and lunches than you can fit in your picnic basket. Well worth a day trip or part of your weekend getaway, if you ask us.
