The Milnerton Flea Market, one of Cape Town’s biggest markets, is ready to reopen this weekend following a long period of closure due to the nationwide lockdown.

Weather permitting, the popular market plans to open to the public again for the first time since lockdown was instated on March 27.

Organisers announced the reopening on Facebook, and added that safety protocols will be in place to provide the community with a safe and enjoyable shopping experience.

Shoppers and traders will have to wear masks at all times and anyone without a mask will not be allowed entry. Hand sanitising will be done at the gates and all shoppers and stall owners will have their temperatures checked before entering.

New trading times for the winter months have also been announced. The gates of the market will open for permanent traders at 7am daily and until 2pm on Saturday and 3pm on Sunday.

Organisers also announced that online shoppers will still be able to purchase items using the Milnerton Online portal and can even pick up their purchased goods at the market if they so choose.

Eager market-goers will finally have the chance to snap up a good bargain and take in the beauty of the Mother City again, so mark your calendars and get ready to shop.
