Though it was historically a place where veggies were bought and sold (hence the name), these days Greenmarket Square is more geared toward tourists. But don't let that deter you from adding it to your shopping itinerary: if you're looking to stock up on some cheap souvenirs—ostrich eggs, beaded giraffes, and printed fabrics—this is the place to go. Just make sure you bring your bargaining skills—and never settle for the asking price.
