Trip to Greenpoint Market

in 

Cape Town - December 2006

I have included some pictures from a buying trip to the Greenpoint Market in Cape Town, South Africa in December 2006.  The market is a great place to see and buy arts and crafts from across South Africa.  I also encountered dealers from Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, and Zambia. The market is held on Sundays at the Greenpoint stadium.  Enjoy!

A vendor with a nice collection of Zulu beadwork.

This is what we import--only the best available.

A typical view of the market.

Another view.  You can walk for hours at this market and never get bored.

The market just keeps going, and going, and going....

A fabulous carver and his work.  He's a refugee from Mugabe's madness in Zimbabwe.

The view from the News Cafe across the street.  A great place to have a few pints after shopping.
