This week the market celebrates the opening of Folha Plantshop. Sandy Michelle and Michelle Viljoen of Michells, together with Gideon Nel and Lawrence de Mink have started an exciting new offering focused on urban houseplants, baskets, pots, potting tools and all that goes with it. Says Sandy, “We’re incredibly excited to work with Sheryl and Caz and their team. We’ve been in the plant busines for 33 years and as our thumbs get greener, our desire to branch out also gets stronger, and it's just not enough to have plain old basic leaves these days. If you like the idea of eye-catching and interesting colours and textures, come and take a look at our selection of houseplants, water-wise outdoor plants, pots, gardening tools, ceramics, baskets and macrame, that we hope you’ll love too.”

The Market 

Home to a wide variety of traders selling and producing everything from delicous treats to organic vegetables, the Oranjezicht market is a one-stop shop. With breakfast, brunch and light lunch options (from pumpkin pie flapjacks at health foodie spot Scheckter's RAW to homemade bagels from Kleinsky's Delicatessen) available, visitors will never go hungry. 

Traders at the market reflect Cape Town's urban farming, community, history and heritage, through the use of seasonal produce and unique labelling. Supporting start up buisnesses, the market has kept stallholder costs as low as possible, providing a podium for entreprenurs from all backgrounds to showcase their talent and wonderful produce. 

The market is open on Saturdays from 8.15am to 2pm, Sundays from 9am to 3pm and now Wednesdays from 4pm-8pm. The market is located  in the historic Granger Bay site near the V&A Waterfront with ample nearby parking.
