A Real Cool Place to Browse on a Week-End!
Dec 2020
....We have not been here for ages and was such an enlightening experience to see how it has been improved! There is just about everything under the sun to be found here! Health, Beauty, Arts & Crafts, etc, etc. The restrooms are clean! When in Cape Town and in the area do make a point of visiting but make sure you have loads of time and yes money too. NB! There is also Free WiFi available which is an awesome bonus..PS! There are lots of Hand Sanitising Spray-Bottles around and the rule is clear No Mask No Entree to the plus minus 150 shops under this one roof.....

The best place for souvenirs
Feb 2020
If you're looking for high quality artisan souvenirs, handicrafts, and art, this is the place to go. Located in the tony V&A Waterfront, you'll find countless stalls filled with unique gifts and things to bring home. Even if you're not looking to buy, there's plenty of beautiful things worth browsing.

Great selection of artisan goods
Feb 2020
Clothes, paintings, carvings, jewelry, souvenirs, plus more---they have it. There is a wide assortment of booths--lots of good quality and fair prices. If you are from out of town and are limited on time and would like to bring something home from South Africa, this is the one place to visit. It is located right on the waterfront, so if you have time, there are many other activities located right there--plus, numerous dining choices. Check out my photos for more details.

Well Worth A Visit
Mar 2020
Great little marketplace selling a range of goods to suit all pockets.
Nicely set out and none of the stall holders we spoke to came over as pushy so made for a relaxing browsing experience.
Bought quite a few souvenirs

A lovely afternoon out
Mar 2020
This is another must do when you are local. There is a huge diversity of stalls and some really nice items to buy. All the stall holders are really nice and many of them are the people who actually made the items for sale. If you want a souvenir that is authentically from South Africa then this is the place to go. There is also a vast range in prices.

Great place to shop
Nov 2019
We visited here at the end of a month-long trip in the southern part of Africa. Saving our sourvenir shopping until the end of our trip turned out great because this place had the most concentrated and varied collection of good quality things that we saw during our travels. There are probably about a hundred different shops. It's conveniently located in the heart of the Waterfront. Check out the guitar shop!

Terrific place for souvenirs as well as useful products. A definite must of you are in Cape Town.

Great find
Nov 2019
Almost hidden within Cape towns V&A waterfront complex is the Watershed. This houses a concentration of really good quality artisan products. Definitely an upmarket market with some really quirky outlets, even a guy making electric guitars out of oil cans. I know it sounds terrible, but you cannot help being impressed. Even if you’re not buying, consider visiting, if only to see the eclectic mixture of its outlets.
