I am a big fan of markets, especially those where lots of food is available. Be it covered markets in warehouses or fresh open air ones where the kids can play and and families picnic. As long as there’s lots of food available and interesting things to find I can be found there.
While most of the markets I’ve been to in Cape Town cater very little for the Muslim customer, there are some that have a few options. Here are a few markets where you can shop till you drop and find halaal food to fill the gap when you need to refuel.
