Neighbourgoods market - the joy of cape town

i found this lovely outdoor market in the bustling old Village of Woodstock. It exudes beauty, creativity, enthusiasm and eccentricity that i certainly wish i could see everyday, it just brightens your mood.
It is a market for all up and coming young designers of crafts, garments and food. This is by far the best way to spend a Saturday morning, i don't mind waking up at the crack of dawn to be the first person in the Origin coffee line, its the only way i can properly wake up and it helps that it is one of the best coffee places in Cape Town :)
Another reason i am whole heartedly in love with the old biscuit mill is because it houses the most amazingly friendly people. one thing about me is that i do not like choosing, so this is a fantastic way for me to get out of doing so, i can try a new thing every week, and because there are always new stalls popping up i never run out of new things to eat.
However the style that most people have at the biscuit mill is one i only dream to have, atleast one day. It just seems like they throw on their mothers old cardigan, vintage purse and highwaisted pants and it somehow looks so beautiful, whereas it probably takes me about 30mins to decide on an outfit, only to change it another 5 more times.

And if my beautifully thought out words are not enough here are a few pictures, guaranteed to have you drooling on your keyboard.
