Milnerton Flea Market: a treasure trove of hidden gems

From antiques and trinkets to a variety of second-hand items

Hunt for treasured buys for hours at the Milnerton Flea Market, the biggest in Cape Town, every Saturday and Sunday. Traders offer antiques, collectables, art, clothes, bric-a-brac, food, gemstones, tools, hardware, and more – it’s a great place to find second-hand kitchenware.

 

A PARADISE FOR BARGAIN HUNTERS
The lively open-air trading space, a stone’s throw away from Lagoon Beach, occupies an extensive stretch of land straddled by Marine Drive on one side and the cool Atlantic Ocean on the other. It’s not only one of the city’s largest, oldest and most iconic informal fairs, but a Disneyland for deal seekers and a hoarder’s heaven.


FIND A HIDDEN TREASURE
The kid- and dog-friendly market’s specialities are inexpensive, second-hand goods, dusty old odds and ends, discarded bric-a-brac and antique collectables. Weekend after weekend, the lines of temporary stands are littered with an endless assortment of what some may deem treasure amid a vast array of pre-loved goods - from car parts to old records.


MUNCH ON SOMETHING WHILE YOU BROWSE
There are several food and drink stalls that sell anything from waffles, pies and spring rolls to croissants, coffee and curried mince.

Note: You won’t be allowed into the market without a mask and temperature checks will be done upon entry. Social distancing must also be adhered to at all times.

The market is open on Saturdays from 7am-2pm and Sundays from 7am-3pm.
