Saturday markets in Cape Town's winelands & surrounds
The weekend is here and there is nothing better to do than spend a few hours at one of these Saturday markets
2019 update: And from the market named after a dog to a slow market in Langa, there’s lots to see at these City of Cape Town markets. We’ve also curated outstanding and out of town markets worth travelling for.
Even if you have plans this weekend, make sure you check out one of these fabulous markets that dot the city and surrounds this Saturday. There are so many markets on a Saturday that we had to spilt them into three parts.
