Owner description: IMAGINE ….. a place where the creative energy and the vibrancy of Cape Town come alive in an authentic fish factory in a working harbour …. where people of all ages and cultures gather alongside one another to celebrate our unique South African spirit …. where the hustle and bustle of a boisterous market fills the air …… where local traders exchange banter with customers …. “that’s a bargain, fo sho!” … an eclectic stylish wonderland of exquisite art, craft, jewellery and fashion …. complemented by the delicious aromas of food to tempt all the senses…freshly baked breads, spicy seafood and citrus fruits … you pass a robotic mime drawing gasps from giggling kids … the sound of a township guitarist and a groovy sax …… punctuated by singing seagulls …. where the famous beauty of Chapman’s Peak looms overhead ………. and the vibe is just sommer lekker!

Great atmosphere, and great food !!! Lovely morning out. The shopping is also ok, but similar to other markets in CT area.

I dragged my non-shopping market-weary mate to the Bay Harbour Market and then could barely drag him away - and that was the first time. Then, he wanted to keep going back.

With lots of variety to chow down on, live music, vendors selling cool and unusual locally produced art and clothing, there is just nothing not to like except that it is open only Friday nights and weekend days. It's good enough that, if you have a choice of which days of the week you stay in Hout Bay, make sure one of the market's open days is among them.

Right in the harbor, we enjoyed drinks and beautiful people around us..... The service was stellar and the drinks above average.

Whenever we're in the vicinity we visit this dynamic & diverse market. There is a great selection of goods for sale; we bought our house numbers made from pebbles from here.

The selection of food & drinks is of a very high quality & very reasonably priced. This is where all the locals hang out so you know it must be good!

Excellent market with high quality merchandise. Delicious food, a wide variety of flavours and choice. Great live music that creates an incredible feel. Well worth the visit.
