Shopping Cape Town Markets
Some of the tastiest treats and coolest crafts are sold at these events. The number of markets on the Cape has increased significantly in the past couple of years, to the point where there's a market to shop almost every day of the week. Besides beaded tchotchke, other items to buy include straw bags, leather goods, artwork, and wooden carvings. Browse the Adderly Street Flower Market for the freshest bouquets of flowers.

Sundays at the Village Market

The casual Village Market in Cape Town is set in a rather upscale, downtown shopping mall called the Cape Quarter Lifestyle Village. Take the escalators to the upper level, where you'll find an open-air courtyard with ample seating among tables offering fresh gourmet food - from craft beers (try the Whale Tale Ale by Boston Breweries), to grilled seafood, to the irresistible homemade "Bar One Brownies" on this vendor's dessert table. This market runs every Sunday from 10:00am to 3:00pm and a smaller version of the market runs each Wednesday.
