City Bowl Market on Hope is becoming the place where Cape foodies meet.

Relax at our market every Thursday evening and Saturday morning. Enjoy live music and delicious food from around the world.

We cater for the whole family with a playful kids zone for the children, draft beer for the dads and lots and lots of irresistible goodies to make you come running back for more!

It’s not just the sheer quality of the food we offer that makes City Bowl Market so special, but also the people and our venue.

Housed in an exquisite old building in Gardens with a fascinating history, the City Bowl Market on Hope is the place to meet friends and feed the family.

We have spent months scouring the Cape for the most exciting traders and products such as yummy cupcakes, summery salads, freshly baked breads, hot curries, sweet pancakes and much more!  

Every Thursday and Saturday we bring together a variety of fine foods, drinks and people. You will experience an ancient way of shopping in a modern context at a high quality food market in Cape Town's City Bowl.

Don’t forget the Fashion Market we host once a month on a Saturday morning. It’s a spender alright!!

The market is populated by a community of remarkable individuals, all of whom care deeply about the food and drink on offer. Our mission is to be a viable and sustainable, independent, quality food market, rooted in the local community.
