It has taken me a long time to get around to reviewing the market. I really enjoy the place and tend to go every week. Whether I am there to meet friends or if I go alone I know that I will have a great time. 


So lets look at the positives:


  • The foods on display are varied and delicious
  • The drinks are interesting and abundant
  • The people are so interesting
  • The location is excellent, with the beautiful beer garden on the roof
  • The view of the city is lively and fun


and the negatives:


  • Arriving and searching for a parking is the 7th circle of hell
  • The Parking Meter people are assholes, who's very mothers loath as they ask for R8 an hour to park on a saturday
  • The food is outrageously expensive
  • The drinks ditto
  • finding a seat in the beer garden, not so easy
  • The design area of the market in the upstairs area is gloomy and lacks flow. Said designers only have objects to purchase from about R30 000 so its not really a impulse buy atmosphere .... in a market. 


So, the balance of pros and cons.


  • If you hate finding a parking and paying a meter maid, get a taxi. or just dodge the fuckers
  • I dont mind paying for quality. Whether thats food or drink
  • I like that the beer garden is busy, I like that atmosphere of "Lets hang out!"
  • the design area ... I stand by that con.


I love the market, go to it.  Eat, Drink, be merry.
