Visitors shopping at Greenmarket Square in Cape Town

The 1834 declaration abolishing slavery occurred right here in the heart of Cape Town. It became a farmers market and a popular place for the townspeople to drink in the 19th century. Nowadays, surrounded by old buildings, it is an open-air market where tourists and locals can purchase everything from clothing to art. This is a good place to go shopping for gifts for those back home.
