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.
