Fodor's Expert Review Pan-African Market

Cape Town Central Crafts

You'll see some glorious cultural contradictions here. The lobby of this building is a gem of Victorian tiling, and the first and second floors are a beehive of traders in new and old folk art, with representatives from most locales in West, sub-Saharan, and southern Africa. Once you've ordered your custom-tailored garment and finally chosen your mask from among the many thousands, enjoy a coffee or a Swahili-infused lunch on the oh-so-quaint first-floor terrace. Bargaining is welcomed.
