I haven’t been to the Neighbourgoods Market in quite a while, mostly because it’s not that close to me (I live on the southern end of the Southern Suburbs).
Also, I’m not terribly patient when it comes to finding parking (and it’s a busy busy market on a busy day) so I started finding my fresh foods and organics elsewhere.
However, there’s no doubt that the Woodstock market does offer one of the widest varieties of home-made, sustainable and organic goods in one place at one time, and I had planned to visit again before Christmas to stock up.
Luckily for me, then, that the market is now open on Sundays as well as Saturdays. Starting this coming weekend (1,2 December), the market will operate on both days of every weekend:
We are pleased to announce that the Neighbourgoods Market will be expanding to trade on Sundays from December 2nd, 2007. Sunday market hours will be 09h00 – 14h00, featuring live music as well as a special selection of stall holders selling everything from regional + sustainable foods, cooked and prepared foods, wild plants + herbs, ethically caught fresh fish and seafood, grains, seasonal baked goods, artisan breads, local cheesemakers, freshly butchered meats + specialty sauasages, local organic vineyards, emerging design labels, contemporary crafters, vintage collectables, and more!
Hallelujah! Sunday has to mean less commercial traffic on Albert Rd, where the market is held, and (hopefully) that will free up more parking for impatient folks like me.
The Neighbourgoods Market is held every Saturday (9.00am – 2.30pm) and Sunday (9.00am – 2.00pm) at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, 373 – 375 Albert Rd (Lower Main Rd.) Woodstock, Cape Town. Get directions here. * UPDATE * Unfortunately, the Sunday markets have been cancelled.
