Market on the Wharf is described by many as Cape Town’s ultimate food destination, situated in the city’s most beloved tourism hotspot, the V&A Waterfront (located between the Two Oceans Aquarium and the V&A Hotel). Since opening its doors in December 2012, Market on the Wharf has delivered on its promise to provide a world-class fresh food and produce market with a delicious selection of international food, as well as locally produced and organic food. It really doesn’t get any fresher or better than this!
Ruth Munitz, a well travelled entrepreneur and the brains behind this development said: “I found it weird that we had the people and the produce, yet we didn’t have the market. When you look at how the market culture has grown in Cape Town, you see the need for a big market.”
Some of the treats available at the market include gourmet meaty burgers, quality pies, croissants, macaroons, a wide variety of coffee, sushi, prime-cut steak, fresh fish, olives, flowers, cheese and international dishes from Taiwanese Dim-Sum to Mediteranean dishes that will make your mouth water. The market works on a “from farm to fork philosophy”.
Here you have the option of enjoying a delightful dinner with your loved one or just popping in to get something tasty to take home. If you plan on spending the day at the market then you have to sink your teeth into some delicious halloumi samoosas, caramalised onion and cheddar quiche or an authentic Argentinian gourmet empanada with an array of fillings from chicken and chorizo to butternut and blue cheese. No meal is complete without dessert so make sure you try one of the many varieties of fudges, chocolates, pastries, waffles, ice creams and frozen yogurts… YUM! We really want to go back to the market now.
Trading from 9.30am – 6.00pm on Wednesday to Sunday, this food mecca is perfect for a Saturday morning brunch, a lunchtime date or your Sunday grocery shopping. Go experience the goodness, the journey of flavours and the jubilant atmosphere at Market on the Wharf.
