  • Popped here one morning to check it out. Nice place full of unique little boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. Definitely worth a few hours of your time.  more »
  • A very fun place to go on Saturdays because a large variety of vendors come out to make this place a market. Lots of fun on those days because there is music, shopping from local vendors, and TONS of food options from small stands. The rest of the stores that are open all week long are nice as well, though they are mostly expensive novelty items like designer clothes, gift shop items, and stickers/prints.
  • Recommend coming here on a Saturday for the market. Some nice and unique shops if you're looking to purchase gifts to take home. Two of Cape Towns best restaurants (The Test Kitchen and The Potluck Club) are also located here.
