Eclectic mix of food stalls offering different foods and catering to a variety of tastes. Nice concept and something along the lines of the craft food scene in the USA. Recommended!

There is lots on offer at this market, from local food to Mexican, Vietnamese and Greek/Turkish bites. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a quick bite.

We went to the market for lunch, had great Sushi and Lamb Rolla. Loved walking around deciding what to order... so much to choose from!

The market is awesome. We had pizza at Nona Lina, was really good. The shirmp pop corn at The Deckhouse Crab is great and the ice cream at the ground floor is amazing, you should try the chocolate 65%.

There were 4 of us in our group, all with different tastes, and we were all able to find something we liked. Especially liked the variety of seafood and the large number of beers available.

Lovely to sit outside on wooden benches under shady tress.. Took a while to get our food and fresh juices - but it was worth the wait. Lovely variety of food options.

We popped in on the off-chance and what a lucky find it was. There is a great selection of takeaway food and upstairs is time to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the downstairs market, which sells the best tender beef jerky and...More

Nice to visit if sheltering from poor or very hot weather. Lots of nice items to buy as presents or for the home. Safe and clean, everyone friendly.

We didn't buy any food there, but there were lots of options. We sat outside in front where there was lively entertainment in front of the statues of the four Nobel Peace Prize Winners.

We are more of a street market then a neighborhood market. We have Chop Chop Steak Bar, where you can buy fresh meat for home use. Also Oysters from the Knysna Oysters.

Tough Question to answer, as I did not have any beer. The meals range in price depending on what you are looking to have. But to be safe I would say average meal would be between R50 - R70.
