There’s something whimsical about meandering through the aisles of your favourite market under the soft glow of the stars and moonlight. Checking for the freshest produce and sampling the chocolatiest brownies. Cape Town is home to a number of market favourites, but for those who prefer to sleep in instead of waking up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to visit your favourite farmers market, you may want to check out some of these awesome night markets around the Mother City.
Get ready to spend the evening emptying your pockets on some quality goodies:
