Beautiful shopping venue. Hand made fashion, jewelry, and art. Went on a Saturday and there was a vibrant food market with artisan products and local produce. Shopping and great food, what’s not to li... 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.
