All reviews stalls selling stall holders african curios green market square nice market stall owners flea market buy souvenirs souvenir shopping for sale local art long street walk around worth a visit vendors haggle carvings
This Green market square has like a flee market where the traders/ vendors sell hand crafts stuff mostly of African origin. We found out that the prices are extremely expensive.. We visited as our hotel was close by.
It is must see market for lovers of traditional art and craft. A large number of vendors selling hand crafted giraffes, rhinos, lions, and other animals, all the big five. Good to see and good to buy as souvenirs, but be sure to bargain (...More
This square once was lovely but has over the last decade been invaded by traders from elsewhere who mostly sell rubbish artifacts.

A great collection of stalls with inexpensive souvenir items to take home. But the quality of goods is average, and there are better shops in Cape Town to find unique and special crafts and art goods. However, it's enjoyable to walk around and to people...More
This is located at the centre of Cape Town. It is good place to buy the African items, souvenirs at pretty cheap price if you have the ability to bargain. I would recommend visiting this place to buy good wooden souvenirs if you know how...More

9 to 5 according to their website. Be cautious and watchful in this area. We witnessed a necklace snatching and credit card theft just feet from the market perimeter. Once inside the perimeter security is tight.
No, they won't ship unless you buy inside a store, which might be more expensive, but sometimes they can surprise you with great bargains. There are plenty around the market. And if you fin something outside, It is always... More
