The Cape Town suburb of Woodstock is a vibrant, lively one that promises a world of things to do and see; ranging from delicious eateries to historical must-sees. Cape Town is the capital city of the Western Cape Province and, as such, has a huge variety of attractions and activities. The Palms Market in Woodstock is one of these.
Also known as The Palms @ Woodstock, this little hotspot is all about showcasing fresh ingredients, farm-style cooking, and quirky bits and pieces. Having been transformed from an old bread and biscuit factory that dated back to the early part of the 20th century to a trendy lifestyle centre, this market has perfectly combined chic and traditional in the tastiest of ways.
The food at The Palms Market has all been prepared with real passion as its main ingredient. There are more than 40 food stalls, as well as coffee stops and spots to enjoy an excellent glass of wine, straight from the world-renowned Cape Winelands. Some of the foody stalls include Wayland’s Nguni Meats, Sexy Sandwich, Kurt’s Meat Deli, Darling Gourmet Mushrooms, Eureka Mills Bread, Toorkombuis, and Classic Marmalade. The variety is yet another guarantee that visitors will savour every moment of this Saturday market.
The Palms Market has an enchanting indoor venue and an even more delightful ambience for those sampling the wonderful palate pleasers on display. Live music performances add to the vibe and there is free undercover parking available. Every second Saturday, a vintage market is also held here, adding to the appeal and offering of The Palms @ Woodstock. Some of Cape Town’s most popular tourist attractions are within a few minutes’ drive from the market. These include Table Mountain and its cable car, the V & A Waterfront, Long Street and the Bokaap.
