Welcome to the V&A Food Market

In 1882, the Old Power Station brought power to the Cape Town dockyard, blazing a trail for trade in Cape Town and the African continent. Today, this powerhouse of innovation is still generating bright ideas through the V&A Food Market – an artisanal street food market that brings together locally produced products, cutting edge concepts and affordability together, seven days a week, in the heart of the V&A Waterfront."
