"Sculpture market on the roadside" Informal Markets Tip by Jenniflower
Informal Markets, Cape Town: 17 reviews and 20 photos
When you drive through Kommetjie and Scarborough, you happen upon an informal market that sells all kinds of sculptures.
What to buy: This picture is an example of the type of things they have on offer. The sculptures are of a very high standard, the sculptors very talented. There are small items too, but there are MANY large ones, which must weight a tonne! They are popular with foreigners though, although for me personally, the cost of flying/shopping such a huge and heavy item would put me off buying it.
As a local, of course it would be fine to buy! No worries re transportation.
What to pay: They are expensive in as much as they are worth alot, but are inexpensive when paying with foreign currency
Directions: It is situated at a junction that takes you to Simons Town if you turn left, and to Cape Point if you continue along to the right.
