At St Michaels and All Angels Anglican Church in the heart of Khayelitsha you will find the Khayelitsha market.
Although this area is still known as a poverty stricken area, tourism is a major draw to this township. Here you can see what the everyday life of the people who live here is like and you will have the opportunity to experience their artistic talents.
At the market you can purchase many curios, pottery, beadwork, paintings, baskets and many more items all handcrafted by the township residents. The Baboon man is worth stopping by to see, he uses cement and crafts stunning baboon statues.
There is a lot to see and do in and around the Khayelitsha and its very interesting to see how creative so many people are that live here. The market is aimed at improving the poverty in the area, so while here at least get yourself a fascinating African souvenir.
