The Elgin Railway Market is within an old apple warehouse converted into a bustling Steampunk, Art Deco market boasting local food and craft vendors, live music and is the gateway to the beautiful Elgin Valley.

The original building was built in the 1940’s by Italian POW’s. The concrete tapered columns and curved box gutters bear testimony to the skill of those craftsmen. It has been extensively renovated and is a must visit.

The Ceres Rail company with 80 year old steam trains, operate a weekend return trip from Cape Town. Welcome the train as it arrives puffing, hooting and whistling!


Food vendors purvey everything from fragrant curries, Mediterranean cuisine, healthy salads, spicy chicken, pizzas, ribs, burgers, exotic Dim Sum, delicious fresh juices, biltong, and fresh Thai, to stalls offering Strictly Halaal, Vegan and Gluten friree options.

Sweets treats are abundant, including home-made fudge, ice-cream, handmade chocolate, and to finish off, a great selection of cakes. The bar serves local wines, beer and cider.  Local craft gins can be found at LGin.

Steam Coffee serves home ground brews whilst the wine shop, stocks excellent Elgin and Bot River wines.

A variety of retail offerings can be found on the mezzanine and ground floors with exceptional jewellery, genuine leather goods, vellies in abundance, CBD oils and edibles, Himalayan salts and lamps, kids toys and clothes, ladies apparel and skin care, men’s gifting and grooming, braai tools and equipment, and then a rummage in the salvage shop.
