Elgin Railway Market: Steampunk Delights, Local Feasts, and Shopping Galore

Hop aboard the Elgin Railway Market, Roger Orpen’s brainchild that transformed an old apple warehouse into a buzzing steampunk paradise! This vibrant station-turned-market in the picturesque Overberg town is a smorgasbord of local delights, complete with live tunes and enough eats to make your taste buds throw a party.


Foodies, rejoice! Take your pick from a flavor fiesta: fragrant curries, Mediterranean feasts, vibrant Vegan salads, tongue-tingling chicken, Neapolitan pizzas, finger-licking ribs, and those heavenly burgers that practically beg to be devoured. Oh, and don’t forget the exotic Dim Sum, Mexican nachos, fresh juices that taste like liquid sunshine, biltong that’s irresistible, and Thai dishes that redefine freshness.



But wait, there’s more! Satisfy your sweet tooth with homemade fudge, creamy ice cream, artisanal chocolates, and a divine selection of cakes. And what’s a good meal without some sips? Quench your thirst with local wines, beer, cider, and Elgin’s very own craft gins at L-Gin, the artisanal gin bar.


Need a caffeine boost? Steam Coffee’s got your back with their top-notch brews. And for the wine enthusiasts, the shop is stocked with the finest Elgin and Bot River wines.



Shopping spree, anyone? Explore the mezzanine and ground floors for a treasure trove of goodies: dazzling jewelry, genuine leather goods, stylish wooden glasses and watches, an abundance of vellies, CBD oils and edibles, Himalayan salts and lamps, toys and clothes for the little ones, chic apparel and skincare for the ladies, thoughtful gifts and grooming gear for the gents, top-notch braai tools, and a hotspot salvage shop.


Can’t make it during the day? No worries! They’ve got a smaller market on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 4pm to 8.30pm. Find your way to Elgin Railway Market on Oak Ave, Elgin, and get ready to indulge in all this quirky paradise has to offer!
