Shop the Adderley Street Flower Market
The Adderley Street Flower Market is a lively place to walk through in downtown Cape Town. The market itself has been in its current location—tucked in an alleyway called Trafalgar Place—for at least 100 years. Passing through the market is not only an interesting cultural connection (most sellers are of Malay origin), but it also gives you an opportunity to buy a small gift if you're visiting friends or staying with hosts. You'll find all different kinds of indigenous flowers and fynbos here; the protea and pincushion varieties are especially pretty.
