    Best to visit on Saturday! I did come on Monday ( early afternoon ) and it was very empty with hardly anyone else shopping and not all stores were open as well as no outside vendors

    This square has a lot of vendors selling souvenirs, t-shirts, clothes, and other things and has some vibrancy to it, albeit, many of the stalls have the same things. I didn’t see that many beggars like others described and I thought the area was fine. It is worth stopping by since they have the things you’d like for yourself and for others. If you’re not wanting to haggle, there are some stores on Long Street that have similar things. I was called a ‘bad man’ by one of the vendors for not buying something so the vendors can be pushy but just hold your ground.

    Last Sunday I was at Good Company Market and it is a really beautiful place, chilled atmosphere and nice people. The food offer is good, I love the fresh Legend Berry shakes... SOOOO YUUUMMY!
    Go with your friends, have a picnic, you can spend all day because of good music and some activities to do.
    Definitely one of my favorite markets in town.

    I just adore Jennifer!! She supports local artists and curates each show to perfection.
    One of the best art galleries in Cape Town to visit. Also features a fantastic online website to purchase art.

    I have to write about the extraordinary customer service I received at Shimansky Cape Town from Cindy Rudolph. I went into the store on a stop during a tour of the Cape Town area with Touch Down Travel and had no intention of buying anything - I just wanted to go on the tour and look at some of the products. Well, I found a tanzanite ring that I really liked and decided to find out more about acquiring it. Cindy assisted me and was very patient and helpful and arranged to have the ring resized to fit my finger. It was going to take a week to do the work, and I only had a brief window of time - less than 18 hours - when I would return to Cape Town before flying onto my next destination. Cindy offered to deliver the ring to me at my Airport Hotel on a Saturday night, before my Sunday morning departure from South Africa. She made the extra effort to make sure that I got the ring in a safe environment and that I was satisfied and understood how to apply for the VAT refund, and I really appreciate it! And, I love the ring and am really glad that I got it!

    We were visiting from Las Vegas and stumbled upon this shoppers jewel after lunch. Great selection of local artisan and fashion items. Also, the team working there was awesome. Super friendly

    My husband and I were walking past the Jack Friedman Store at Waterfront and saw the beautiful butterfly ring in the window. We walk into the store and Suraya greeted us. By the time we left Cape Town (3 days later) I had gone back to the store and bought not only the Butterfly Ring but also the Leopard Ring. Love them so much. Suraya was great. In the months to follow Suraya also assisted in helping with the Tax Agents Office with the Tax Refunds.
    If I had a business, I certainly would want Suraya working for me. Professional, knowledgeable and a lovely lady to deal with. A great asset for the Company.

    Very busy, lively market with good organic veggies.. However, the place is so packed you hardly can move. Thus. It has lost quite some of the attraction it had to me some years ago.

    Beautiful art in a beautiful neighborhood!! Very small but packs a punch with the beautiful art that they have. If you're looking for pieces of history and culture this is the place. The artwork was phenomenal. Also got a chance to see the artist creating more beauty while there.

    I visited the current Michael Gah exhibition at the Christopher Moller Gallery. I like his new work, the colours and subject matter are bright and bold. A great show!

    This fine gallery is a must for anyone interested in quality art. The prints, paintings, jewellery, metal work etc. are of an exceptionally high standard.
    Spend some time (and have some money ready) as this is a collection of works by extremely talented people which shouldn't be missed by anyone visiting the Cape, let alone Kalk Bay!
