Neighbourgoods Market, Woodstock

The Neigbourgoods Market at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, Cape Town is a Saturday morning gourmet food market that is really awesome until about 10:30am… and then you suddenly can’t move anymore because the rest of Cape Town has rolled out of bed. The food is wonderful, the vendors are (mostly) all the nicest bunch of people, who are passionate about what they do and could talk to you for hours about their products, but the key to enjoying this market and getting the most out of what it has to offer is in getting there early…

I have linked to a few of the people I had the chance to chat to, but unfortunately wasn’t able to get the contacts of everyone whose yummy things I photographed… you will have to pay them a visit next Saturday.
