• The Slow Market is an urban market which takes place in two prime locations – Willowbridge and Stellenbosch.

    Are you a Locavore – someone interested in eating food that is locally produced? If you are, look no further; the Slow Food Market features foods which are grown, raised, harvested and transformed by the producers themselves.

    Regardless of your food preferences or requirements, you are bound to find something delicious at the market as well as plenty of gorgeous locally-made designs and crafts.

    You can rely on this market to be running from 9 am to 2 pm every Saturday, come rain or shine. The organisers cover the entire market in rainproof Bedouin tents in wet weather.

    This Saturday morning market features speciality wine producers, craft beer, food artisans, gourmet food vendors, local farmers, natural and organic merchants, clothing, jewellery, seasonal goods and local designer-ware.

    The Willowbridge Slow Market

    In the Northern Suburbs, the market takes place at the trendy Willowbridge Lifestyle Centre. When you visit this urban, cosmopolitan street market, you’ll find it hard to believe that the Durbanville Winelands are just around the corner.

    The Market’s Mission
    The Slow Market is a member of Slow Food International in South Africa. Their mission is to provide a platform for local small businesses. All products and business practice in true slow food way: ‘good, clean and fair’.
