The Neighbourgoods Market is an outing not to be missed if ever you’re in Cape Town. Filled to the brim with wkend markets. Local vendors set up shop for the day and wkend ahead. Delectable local and international cuisine are on display. Expect all kinds of goodies, from locally sourced to handmade products and even the thriftiest of vintage finds.

The Neighbourgoods market is an absolute must for the enlightenment of your taste buds. Sensational smells wafting through the air and clouding your judgment. Paddling through a sea of people isn’t the easiest thing to manage when your belly has been complaining almost all day. You stand, squeeze, bump, jump and hop your way around the market. Sometimes it just really is ALL too GOOD to be true, but it’s true and it’s more inviting than ever.

I mean everybody loves cake but who knew everybody loves oysters? I guess everybody’s looking for a little romantic spark or someone to be their aphrodisiac. Who knows?

Investing in a pair of these bad boys is the best decision I’ve made all year. It didn’t come easy, but it was love at first sight. Handmade, crafted with love designer styled shoes.

Once you have finished your delightful and tantalizing shopping experience. Stop over at the Woodstock Brewery. They make some of the best Craft Beer that Cape Town has to offer. The Only thing left to add to the beauty and fun of a day out in Woodstock would be a bicycles trip down that daunting green lane. I wouldn’t suggest this though. You can rent bicycles and cycle along the promenade for a better bicycling experience. A day out in Woodstock and experiencing The Neighbour Goods market is a Saturday well spent. Definitely, something I would suggest for travellers visiting Cape Town for the first time.
