Bay Harbour Market

Every weekend a little bit of good old-fashioned Cape Town comes to life in what used to be an unused fish factory in the pretty Hout Bay harbour. 

The Bay Harbour Market brings together crafters, artists and busking musicians every Saturday and Sunday. The smell of fresh fish grilling on the coals and the aroma of just-baked bread wafts in the air, whetting the appetite and giving shoppers a hint of traditional Cape food.

Colourful local dialects mix with languages from across the world as traders haggle with clients over the price of a piece of clothing, jewellery or art, while the sound of a saxophone or the strumming of a guitar rises above the cacophony.

One of the key elements of the Market is to give traders, many from disadvantaged backgrounds, an opportunity to develop their artistic and business skills, so that they can set up sustainable businesses.
