New Food Market at V&A Waterfront
I'd heard rumors about a full-on food market opening at the V&A waterfront last year already... and now it's been confirmed...
Plus for all those foodies wanting to peddle their wares, here are contact details and info for vendor applications.
Here are the deets:
The Market will be situated adjacent to the Nobel Laureate Square inside the historic Power Station (on the site of the Musica flagship store) in the Waterfront precinct. In what promises to be the largest fresh produce and prepared food market in South Africa, Market on the Wharf enables Cape Town to be on par with international cities in its offering of an authentic organic and fresh food destination.
As one of Africa’s most visited tourism sites, the world renowned V&A Waterfront is not only a premier destination for internationals, but also popular with locals and South Africans. With Table Mountain designated as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world and Cape Town as the Design Capital in 2014, the scene is set for a vibrant cultural and food tourism arena. At this point in time, Cape Town does not have an all-under-one-roof large fresh food market accessible to both locals and tourists.
Vendor applicants will be required to complete Vendor Information Forms to be found on our website www.marketonthewharf.co.za. They may be required to submit product samples at a later stage.
Daily rates will include security, marketing and PR as well as cleaning and waste removal of the common areas. Water, electricity, equipment and store fittings will be for the vendors account. Stall sizes for permanent vendors vary from 4 square meters upwards, available at a daily rate of between R350 - R550 per day (excluding VAT).
The V&A Market on the Wharf will be open for trading on Wednesdays - Sundays 9.00am - 19.30pm. The Market will be in operation 22 days a month, including public holidays.
The Market on the Wharf’s launch date is 1 November 2012. Its vendor mix will include a butchery, fishmongers, bakers, confectioners, dairy products, fruit & vegetables, olives, herbs & spices, delicatessen products, nuts, tea & coffee, condiments and other specialty stores, such as wine merchants, fresh fruit juices, flowers etc. All vendors will have to meet specific standards for every produce item and guarantee the freshness of their products.
