In what promises to be the largest fresh produce and prepared food market in South Africa, Market on the Wharf enables Cape Town to be on par with international cities in its offering of an authentic organic and fresh food destination.

Fresh food markets

Fresh food markets are a feature of most international destinations including St Lawrence Market in Toronto, Ferry Building Market in San Francisco, Borough Market in London, La Boqueria in Barcelona and many other European cities.

As one of Africa’s most visited tourism sites, the world renowned V&A Waterfront is not only a premier destination for internationals, but also popular with locals and South Africans. With Table Mountain designated as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world and Cape Town as the Design Capital in 2014, the scene is set for a vibrant cultural and food tourism arena.

In line with the trend of going back to basics and the Slow-Food-Movement, the market will offer to V&A residents and businesses, travellers and the hip, hot and happening crowd of Cape Town the opportunity of browsing and shopping at a daily market with a large selection of fresh produce under one roof.
