Hout Bay

My Life in Africa

The Hout Bay Market


I love visiting markets. I’ve been to two well-known markets here in Cape Town, and yesterday marked the third. The Hout Bay Market in Hout Bay – a coastal suburb in a valley along the Atlantic Seaboard of the Cape Peninsula – hosts a lovely organic food market every weekend. They also have arts & crafts. I won’t lie it’s a bit of a drive. I travelled with three crazy friends which was great for me because the drive was so long but felt like five minutes with the crew I was with. I enjoyed the festive atmosphere and the seafood.
