V&A Market on the Wharf: An International Taste


Even though the Market on the Wharf at the V&A Waterfront has been around for a good while now, I still remember the first time I visited. Being a touristy spot, it makes sense that there are a range of international dishes to try out at this daily food market. For local foodies, this aspect is a real treat! We love trying new things, well, most of the time anyway (I will admit though that I recently shied away from sampling the mopane worms and wild game kebabs with crocodile and warthog meat).

With all that's on offer at this popular market, you could pretend you're in The Netherlands as you bite into a cheesy boomstam or croquette, or in a trendy French city as you bite down into a lamb kebap.

Perhaps, you'd rather imagine yourself on a boat trip in Venice, with some novel ice-cream flavour from The Creamery or on a Spanish island with a view of the Mediterranean tasting a paella?

We particularly enjoyed the Bubble Tea (now a regular favourite), O'ways Tea with a range of different teas and the beautiful local cheeses from Around Cheese. Every few months there are new vendors at the market and that means that going to the Market on the Wharf on a regular basis is always interesting. At the moment, if you're a coffee drinker, Truth Coffee is there with a selection of eats and hot brews. If you're a health conscious person, you'll find roasted kale and chia seeds at The Hungry Herbivore stall and you can order a delicious made-on-the-spot green baobab smoothie from Dr. Juice (which comes highly recommended). I could keep listing the wonderful world cuisines on offer, but we really think you should try it out yourself, and we're pretty sure that you'll be at the V&A Waterfront sometime soon, so put this food market on your bucket list.
