In the heart of Cape Town’s business district, you’ll find Greenmarket Square. The square has quite a reputation – it has been a slave market, a fruit and vegetable market and, during the 1950s, a humble parking lot.
These days it’s just the place to look for clothing, glassware, hand-painted fabrics, footwear, music, sunglasses and curios from all over Cape Town and Africa.
Greenmarket Square is the ultimate flea market – not only will you find a wide range of goods to buy, there is also entertainment in the form of buskers, mime artists and jugglers, especially on Saturday mornings and other busy times.
The market is a big success and as a result surrounding businesses continue to prosper – there are loads of coffee shops and restaurants in the vicinity – so take time out to sit at a sidewalk table and watch the world go by.
Monday to Saturday between 09h00 and 16h00, in the square that dissects Burg Street and between Longmarket and Shortmarket streets.
