V&A Market on the wharfon May 6, 2013
The Table Bay Hotel is fortunate to have the best location in Cape Town ; to be a part of the V&A Waterfront is in essence to be at the very centre of the city. A new addition to this amazing destination is the Market on the Wharf.
I popped down the other morning to see what all the hullabaloo was about and fell in love. I am a foodie. I like to cook. Read cookery books. I’m addicted to MasterChef Australia. And, I like to eat good food. This new venture encompasses all those things. It includes a foodie bookshop, a demo kitchen, the College of Beer (which is something I’m not really into but it promotes locally crafted beers which I’m all for). The market also features natural body products. I had a poke around Lavender in Lavender Hill and came away with loads of products that I don’t need. I also tasted a few of the juices – I really liked the unusual baobab and aloe juice.
Whilst there I also visited the Gourmet Pantry stand and the Bosini brothers stand. They grow all of their vegetables organically on a farm in Kommetjie and any produce not used they pickle or can. I found them to be very entrepreneurial. And their fresh produce is fantastic.
