People describe this flea market as Cape Town’s famous landmark for bargain hunters.
It’s a lovely outing and a unique shopping experience with fresh sea breezes and has the spectacular Table Mountain as a backdrop.A vast variety of items in any imaginable form and description are on sale, as well as fresh food for just about every taste.The main attraction for me is the endless variety of used items ranging from domestic tools and utensils to antiques at bargain prices.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shortbread is a type of biscuit which is traditionally made from one part white sugar, two parts butter, and three parts flour (by weight). Shortbread is so named because of its crumbly texture (from an old meaning of the word short). The cause of this texture is its high fat content, provided by the butter.
I got my shortbread recipe from my sister, Heleen.
55g caster sugar, plus extra to finish
180g plain flour
Heat the oven to 190C
Beat the butter and the sugar together until smooth.
Stir in the flour to get a smooth paste. Turn on to a work surface and gently roll out until the paste is 1 cm.
Cut into rounds or fingers and place onto a baking tray. Sprinkle with caster sugar and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Set aside to cool on a wire rack
I have used a Vintage tea set a friend gave to me last year. What a gem! It is a Homer Laughlin set , made in USA during 1944!

Living in Cape Town is a new experience ! I’ve only been living here for 2 weeks therefore there is so much to see, so much to do!
This morning we went to a lovely market. Die Platteland Market at The Palms in Woodstock. The market offered so many freshly baked goodies, homegrown veggies, lots of cheeses to sample on, olives, dried fruits, nuts, fresh flowers and a lot more! Needless to say that I went home with a lot more than I’ve bargained for!
Fresh mushrooms from Darling Gourmet Mushrooms and cheese from Bon Fromage in Newlands!
