Cape Town Markets - Old Biscuit Mill and City Bowl Market

As it says - The Old Biscuit Mill

In an earlier post, Karen talked about the  Real Food Market in London.

Over the past few years loads of fresh food markets have sprung up all over Cape Town.

Our favourite is The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock.

As the name implies it was exactly that - a biscuit mill.

Eating at The Old Biscuit Mill

It now has a whole community of craft type shops, and a food market on Saturdays.

Lots of interesting foods and drinks to try out, from pizzas to stir fries and smoothies to craft beers, and a great selection of fresh stuff too.

Karen at the Tatamoo stall

It is not of course only vegetarian produce, but here we found out about vegan cheeses, at the Tatamoo stall. Read about that here.

We would love to try and go vegan, but....... 

French cheese stall

who can resist a creamy French Brie or Camembert!!!

Fresh exotic mushrooms

And I love to stock up on assorted fresh 
mushrooms such as oyster or shiitaki.

Our other favourite is the City Bowl Market in Hope street.

A lot smaller than the Biscuit Mill market, with some similar offerings, but here we get organic eggs at half the price one pays at the supemarket.

We have also become interested in the raw food concept, and came across a wonderful book called Easy Living Food which has over 200 Raw Food recipes.
We have started trying out some of these - watch out for them in later posts.

Bon apetit
