An over 320 year old square. We came shopping for unique souvenirs. We enjoyed the market. Lots of interesting and unusual African handicrafts and other things to see.

This was once one of Cape Towns best markets for local crafters, but not it’s all about west, East and North African crafts that are mass produced and some made to look old. Prices are guessed and inflated. Every second booth has the same thing. You can probably find the same items in your own countries for cheaper than you can at this market

Had some nice things to buy if you were looking for inexpensive gifts but alot of people panhandling every where in the area and a refugee camp right next to it so be aware of your area just like anywhere you go

The quality of the goods in this market was of mixed quality, so browse first before you buy from any particular vendor. Prices are negotiable. Be aware there is a homeless mission nearby and many people will beg for money and follow you for quite some time asking for help. It made us want to leave the area quickly after leaving the market, because we couldn't help everyone who approached us.
