Green Market Square. Early Morning Set-up. Shopping and Vibrancy.

Every morning the traders at Cape Town’s Green Market Square wheel out their goods and set up in the hope of good sales. I was there to watch this happen last Saturday morning just after 7am. The camaraderie is strong. Chit-Chat and help offered. The goods on sale typically African, from wired animals to wooden bowls, printed fabrics and silk-screen paintings, handbags and leather works. I even saw snake skin belts, to my dismay. But the point is that any visitor to Cape Town must make their way to this historic square for conversation and a keep-sake. Or simply the experience of walking between the vibrant stalls.
