Held every Wednesday evening, Saturday & Sunday day at the historic Granger Bay site at the V&A Waterfront, the Oranjezicht City Farm Market – OZCF Market Day is a community farmers-style market for independent local farmers and artisanal food producers. It’s my favourite place to do a weekly shop for free-range meat, eggs, fresh fruit and vegetables. There is amazing bread from Woodstock Bakery, Puglia cheese, Richard Bosman charcuterie and cakes from Queen of Tarts to name just a few. While I’m there I always pick up breakfast or lunch and eat overlooking Granger Bay and it gets super busy these days so I prefer to go earlier rather than later. It’s also hard to choose what to eat and I love the poached eggs on potato rosti, a steak sandwich from KItchen Cowboys or a Mediterranean feast from Sababa (their shakshuka is delicious). This week I tried the Banh mi for the first time as I wanted to capture a flavour memory from my recent trip to Vietnam and it was very tasty. I can never resist picking up a pasteis de nata from the Hoghouse bakery at Spier because it’s the best pasteis I’ve ever tasted. This is a must-visit food market for anyone living or visiting Cape Town. There is ample parking and a great vibe.
