The Phillipi Horticultural Area is an important urban agricultural area within Cape Town.
The Philippi area encompasses a distinctive cultural landscape as well as some of the last remaining agricultural and natural landscape within the metropolitan area. This unique landscape is the result of the dynamic relationship between topographical form, climate, geology, usage, history and settlement. This includes the Horticultural area, the sand dunes along the southern border of area, the wetlands ecological/green corridor (Edith Stephans natural park) which links rural and urban domains, as well as the rural area around the old Klipfontein Mission.

Many of the City's vegetables are grown here. The farmers’ union, the Kaapse Vlakte- en Distrik -Boerevereniging (Cape Flats
and District Farmers Association) is now the oldest farmers’ union in South Africa. The farms were family enterprises in which every member of the family took part. In an astonishingly short time Philippi became known as the market garden of Cape Town, providing much of the citys’ vegetables
