You don't have to be a foodie to appreciate the fabulosity of this urban artisan market.

I can't quite remember life before the Neighbourgoods Market. The brainchild of inner city culture vultures Justin Rhodes and Cameron Munro, this Saturday institution takes place at the Old Biscuit Mill (http://www.theoldbiscuitmill.co.za), a reclaimed industrial factory filled with edgy shops and studios and well with a visit itself. From early morning, artisan bakers, butchers, boerewors makers set up their stalls, waiting in earnest for the trendy types who flock here to stock up on cheeses, organic veg and just-baked sweet treats, taste small brewery beer, slurp on breakfast mojitos (if you can't beat 'em join 'em I say) and beautiful heritage blooms with which to beautify their homes. A smörgasbord of edible eye candy awaits - I think this market has helped put Cape Town on the map with discerning travellers. Be sure to visit the Design Goods Market (http://www.neighbourgoodsmarket.co.za/designgoods) tent too where local designers flog their handmade jewellery, artworks, fashion and quirky collectables.

Expert tips

Come with plenty of cash and a shopping bag.

The market is situated in a gritty part of the city - be aware of this of parking in out of the way streets.
