About The Market Shed

Enjoy the fresh and vibrant flavours of home-grown goods when you visit the Market Shed in Strand. This farmers market is open every Saturday from 08h00 so that shoppers can come early and get the freshest goods in the Helderberg. It closes at 14h00.

The distinct farm vibe is helped along by the gorgeous views of the mountain range and the crisp air of a glorious morning in the Western Cape. There is a large area outside, where the market is held on sunny days. But, when the weather doesn’t cooperate, it is moved inside so that, no matter the conditions, the market is always on.

In addition to all of the lovely produce on offer, there is plenty of variety when it comes to ready-made treats (sweet and savoury) and drinks. Flowers, herbs, and sauces can also be sampled and bought here. Other awesome products include meat, biltong, macaroons, pastries, freshly-baked breads (including low-carb options), coffees, and preserves.

There is music playing to set the scene, and live acts are sometimes at the Market Shed too. This keeps the atmosphere light and fun for the whole family.

Entrance to the Market Shed is free and there is plenty of parking available.

Strand is about 40 minutes’ drive from Cape Town. So, visitors to the Mother City can come to the market for the morning and then head back to the non-stop buzz of the City Bowl, V & A Waterfront, Camps Bay, Clifton and Table Mountain in the afternoon.
