Held every Saturday at the historic Granger Bay site of the V&A Waterfront, the OZCF Market Day is a community farmers-style market for independent local farmers and artisanal food producers. At the OZCF Market customers can do weekly food shopping (veg, fruit, bread, organic dairy, free-range eggs, honey, muesli etc), try out some delicious cooked and raw foods and be inspired about helping to build an alternative food system. Additionally, customers can buy edible plants and seedlings, compost and gardening supplies and equipment.
Communal tables are provided for visitors to eat at, or just enjoy the Saturday papers. We also provide free wi-fi, courtesy of Vanilla Internet Services.
Catering for vegans and vegetarians, raw foodies, and customers who want wheat, gluten, sugar and dairy-free alternatives is important to us. We also sell indigenous and other plants, heirloom and organic seed and gardening products.
Entrance: There is no fee to enter the market. Pedestrian entrances are open directly from Beach Road, and cyclists, joggers, dog walkers and others are most welcome.
Bicycle Parking: We are a bike friendly venue and have bicycle racks for our customers available at the market’s main entrance.
Getting to the market by bike: We want to encourage our customers to ditch their cars and cycle to the market. Here is one of the recommended routes from Gardens /CBD to the market. The route can be cycled in either direction.
Public transport: The MyCiTi 104 route stops opposite the market on Beach Road and at the main V&A Waterfront stop. The T01 also stops there, as well as on Granger Bay Blvd a block from the market.
Vehicle parking: 6000 parking bays are available adjacent to the market. Parking is charged by the V&A Waterfront according to their tariffs, starting with R10 for the first hour.
Dogs: Friendly dogs are welcome to join you at our market; however they must be on a short leash and kept away from produce, plants, and other food products.
