The Old Biscuit Mill, Neighbourgoods Market.

Every Saturday, no matter the weather, you will find the Neighbourgoods Market on 373 Albert Road in Woodstock the place to be. Open between 09h00 to 14h00. Established by entrepreneurs Justin Rhodes and Cameron Munro, who had a dream to revive and reinvent the city market concept. And this they have achieved!

Now every Saturday more than 100 traders from local farmers, fine-food producers, organic merchants, bakers, grocers, fish mongers, butchers, artisan producers and local chefs celebrated local chefs set up their wares and trade here.

There’s a wonderful sense of community here, loads of small enterprises, fresh fruit, veg and flowers – and delicious things to eat. Spoilt for choice! Here are some of the stalls I came across on my visit a couple of weeks ago.

This was one of the more innovative prodcuts on offer, if you eat tuna and like biltong, this is your man. Biltong from the Sea.

These are just a handle of market merchants, there are as I said, about 100. Do go over with a hungry tummy and some time and explore the flavours and passion that this market is renowned for.

Every shop in the area is extraordinary and the Bedouin market on Saturdays has vintage clothing, handbags, shoes and beautiful craft times too. Word of advise – go early! It gets a little too busy to enjoy after 11h00.
