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.

We showcase over 40 tenants with the finest local products and offer a platform for small business to launch trend concept food stores and bars alike. You can sit indoors when windy or quayside for sundowners.

It’s the place to be for those seeking an eating experience with a vibrant atmosphere and plenty of variety at affordable prices – CapeTown Magazine, WhatsoninCapeTown, CapeTown.travel and CapeMarkets would agree and so would all the lovely people who left rave reviews on TripAdvisor.
