Nothing extraordinary in the market. What is nice and a reason to visit is to walk between the buildings and in the city and it close to the Company's Gardens. Some nice coffee shops near the market.

Many vendors have set up stalls in the Green Street park area. After reading previous reviews, we did not expect much but we were greatly surprised at the variety, quality and unique souvenirs. Sure some of the vendors wanted us to look at their merchandise...More

Just a small touristy market with a lot of similar and pricey stuff. Every shop offers clothes and jewelry. Nothing special. I recommend to watch the tourists while bargaining, its much more interesting than to look for things for your own.

Walking around from Sea Point on a Saturday morning found this charming local food market and great place for a brunch. Really interesting mix of things on offer and plenty of people sampling dishes on trestle tables.

This is a great spot for local souvenirs. There are several ATMs in the areas that are not considered safe. So make sure you ask your hotel ahead of time where you should go. Make sure you negotiate on the prices of goods.

Items sold are almost all the same. If you go to one kiosk, you may as well have gone to all of them. Caveat: bargain hard! But the t-shirts guy that sell Mandela's and Biko's images,I believe, is the only exception. it is near our...More

This is a fun market to shop for souvenirs and there are some hidden gems here. We found beads, bowls etc...but the best find were gorgeous sweaters from KBY Clothing! We probably bought 15 of them and Ilhaam and Suraya were even willing to deliver...More
