The City Bowl Market started not so long ago, but has escalated in popularity, to such an extent that new stands, events and opening times have made it the “must-see” market in the heart of Cape Town. Every Saturday morning Cape Town is full of organic, fresh food and drink markets, with local producers selling some of the most delicious and delectable goods for you to choose from.
The City Bowl Market is open on Thursdays from 16:30 – 20:30 and again on Saturdays between 09:00 and 14:00. With a number of traders that include individuals selling coffee, cheese, organic meat, bagels, curries, sushi, croissants, artisan breads and a variety of other produce, visitors are spoilt for choice at this market. The beauty of the market is that it caters for the entire family, as there is a garden and jungle gym for kids, while dad can enjoy some delicious craft beers and mum investigates the many delicious treats on offer.
By combining all aspects around local cuisine the City Bowl Market is a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning, and the breakfast stand is a particular favourite. What makes this so fantastic for our guests at the Gardens Centre Holiday Apartments is the fact that it is literally a 5 minute walk from the hotel, straight down Hope Street.
The main mission behind the market is to be “a viable and sustainable, independent, quality food market, rooted in the local community.” It is also the reason that the market consists of a community of traders who take great pride in their products, meaning the food and drink on offer is curated with love, attention and as a result guarantees fantastic quality. Make the most of your next stay at the Gardens Centre Holiday Apartments by exploring the wonderful Mother City which is right on its doorstep.
