Facebook Feedback Friday: Your favourite markets in Cape Town
Stuart Buchanan is a journalist, blogger, and online writer for Flow Communications.
He grew up in Durban and has lived in various parts of South Africa and the UK, before finally settling on Cape Town. He often wonders why anyone would want to live anywhere else.
Every Thursday afternoon we pose a question to our Facebook followers at I ♥ Cape Town. We want to know what you love about Cape Town, and we take some of the best responses and post them collectively on our blog.
Yesterday we asked you: "Where is your favourite market in Cape Town?"
