Cape Town classic – Adderley Street flower market

New here’s something that’s existed for ages: the Adderley Street flower market. And it really is a sight to behold. Nowhere else in the city will you find this many flower bunches in one space. You’ll find it in a little alley just off Adderley, next to the Golden Acre shopping mall. There’s a little walkway in which the flower sellers sit and make their bunches, greeting you as you walk by and asking what you’re after. On the other side it’s just a pavilion of flowers.

Why shop at stores for expensive, pre-arranged flowers if you can come down here and choose the ones you like out yourself? These ladies will definitely wrap them up just as prettily.
