The Squad at Triumph Travel have a passion for local goods and markets. For this reason, we have organized a special tour of the most famous city markets in Cape Town as well as Johannesburg.
These spectacular walks will be held on Saturdays, where you will have a unique opportunity to travel to different parts of the city. Here you can sample delicacies of South African cuisine, get numerous local products and in turn you can choose from great offers with the local artisans.
Overall it is an activity best experience on Saturdays.
After pick up we head straight to our first choice, perhaps the most touristy visiting the the famous market on Greenmarket Square in Cape Town. This great market has an important part of local history and is located in the heart of the city. Formerly this was a slave trading post during colonial times, then a fruit and vegetable market. At this market, you will not only find a wide variety of products to buy but also find street musicians, mimes and jugglers. After the experience in Greenmarket Square, we continue our walk around the area of Woodstock, to visit another market at the Biscuit Old Mill. Here we will have time to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or cider, relax and enjoy the sounds and smells of both fresh produce as well as cooked goods. . This unusual market is also home to two trendy restaurants: The Test Kitchen and The Pot Luck Club. This market also features arts, crafts, fashion and design shops.
The next stop is the beautiful bay of Hout Bay, to visit the portside market called The Bay Harbour Market. A place where creative energy and dynamism of South Africa come alive in this show off the port. Here you will find people of all ages and cultures, enjoying this market with festive spirit. Wonderful works of art, clothing and African crafts the amaze when transiting each store; accompanying the delicious flavors of South African cuisine. The tour ends in the famous Cape Quarter, which is not a market, but a myriad of streets focusing on design and style; located in the suburb of Green Point. The complex is surrounded by excellent restaurants. This center is ideal for shopping or just to relax and enjoy one of the many restaurants and cafes.
In Johannesburg, much like Cape Town we visit the Rosebank Craft Market in place of the Greenmarket Square and Neighbourgoods in place of The Old Biscuit Mill as they all have similarities. The tour in Johannesburg ends in the Maboneng district which has a very similar focus on design and art similar to that of De Waterkant.
