Milnerton Flea Market – Nowadays
No, it’s not in Milnerton anymore. It was, at its inception, some 20 years ago. Today, Milnerton Flea Market is situated on Marine Drive (R27) opposite Metro Industrial Park, Paarden Eiland in Cape Town and a stone’s throw away from Lagoon Beach, Milnerton.
Nowadays, the market occupies a tract of land equal to four football fields in size with a breathtaking backdrop of Table Mountain. The open-air trading area is tarmac surfaced, surrounded by fences and entrance gates leading directly from the adjacent parking lots.
The market is child and animal friendly.
After 8.00 AM no vehicular traffic or bike riding is allowed in the trading area. There are public resting benches as well as seating facilities at most of the food stalls. The walk-ways are broad and suitable for prams and wheelchairs. Public toilets which include a wheelchair friendly facility are continuously kept clean. For visitors’ convenience, the extensive parking areas on the northern and southern sides of the market are constantly supervised by parking attendants. Trading and all other market related activities are monitored and supervised by designated market officials.
Entrance to the market and its parking facilities is free of charge.
Milnerton Flea Market is governed by the Milnerton Informal Traders Association (M.I.T.A.), a registered non-profit organization that prides itself for being part of Cape Town’s most diverse outdoor market and famous landmark for bargain hunters.
