However, trading was suspended last week to accommodate a Cape Town City F.C. match at the stadium.
However, the City's mayco member for urban management Grant Twigg says it has always been the arrangement that stadium events take precedence.
He says traders are be back in business at the P4 parking area, adjacent to the athletics stadium, for the next two weeks.
According to Twigg, officials are searching for an alternative site where the market can be held on event days.
He says the City wants the Green Point Flea Market to be a permanent feature on its calendar, every Sunday.
The agreement with all traders is that when there is events, the P4 trading space is the marking space for the stadium.Alderman Grant Twigg, Mayco Member for Urban Management - City of Cape Town
