It became a farmers' market in 1710 and is now the city's best-known flea market. It is also home to many buskers including dancers, singers and musicians as well as some of Cape Town's more colourful and eccentric characters. It is bordered by a good selection of restaurants and cafes with outdoor tables for alfresco coffees. Beautiful old buildings, including the Old Town House, look over the square. The best time to explore Greenmarket Square is on a sunny Saturday morning. Credit card acceptance vary between businesses.
