Welcome to the V&A Food Market

George Bernard Shaw once said: "There is no sincerer love than the love of food." We tend to agree with George. Most of us have been to the V&A Waterfront. We have bought clothes and even smartphones, but did you know that there is a place where you can feed your soul, meander through stalls and taste delicious treats? Let dad sip a craft beer. Let mom have her cappuccino, and if the little one's ask for a Bubble Tea or ice-cream... well that is there for them too. We invite you go through these pages to get a taste of what is on offer, and then to come on over and experience goodness with numerous delicious artisanal street food stands serving a wonderful array of tastes within an authentic market environment. Bon Appetite
