Willowbridge Slow Market

Willowbridge Slow Market by Justin Sewell

Willowbridge Slow Market
Slow food, slow wine, slow design could very well be a subtext for much of what Cape Town has to offer, but this is in fact the strapline for the Willowbridge Slow Market - a foodie’s delight!  Cape Town has food markets, food trucks, fabulous restaurants, wonderful food gardens and wine all right on the doorstop of the city, and in keeping with the very “Cape Town” theme of slowing life down and appreciating the more traditional values of life and food is the Willowbridge Slow Market. Here fresh, healthy, organically grown produce of all kinds is on offer every Saturday at the Willowbridge Lifestyle Centre in Northern Suburbs of Cape Town.  The area is close to the Durbanville Wine Route and adjacent to wonderful other shopping options.

Only home-grown allowed
The over 100 local producers, who pack the stalls with their wares, are only permitted to sell products that they have grown themselves or sourced, raised, harvested, caught, preserved or transformed themselves.  Although that assertion might sound rather limitless, the regulation is strictly adhered to and the resultant offerings are truly unique and undeniably delicious.

Everyone shoots a goal
Pricing, as with everything else at this market, is based on the principle of fairness, for both the producer and the consumer and the resultant prices are decent and equitable.  This, along with the food, leaves a very good taste in one’s mouth and a pleasantly surprised pocket.

Looking after the environment
 and the kids
As one would most definitely expect from a market of this nature, the environment and the concept of sustainability are given high priority here.  All the producers keep their waste to a minimum and recycling is encouraged with every step you take.  Add to this the “slow kids” initiative, which offers fun and creative ways to entertain and educate the little ones whist you relax and shop, and you have a lovely Saturday morning out – come rain or shine!


The market takes place every Saturday from 09h00 to 14h00.
