The V&A Food Market presents a variety of foodie options with healthy and not-so-healthy but delicious foodie variety. We had a delicious charcuterie platter from The Gourmet Pantry seemingly prepared with love!

So many food choices! We ended up coming here 2-3 times because of the vast selection. I would recommend to bring some Rand$ because not all places took credit cards or had a minimum.

Thank you for the great review... we encourage all our traders to cater for credit cards, but there are a very small few who don't have machines. Kind regards Amanda

We are more of a street market then a neighborhood market. We have Chop Chop Steak Bar, where you can buy fresh meat for home use. Also Oysters from the Knysna Oysters.

Tough Question to answer, as I did not have any beer. The meals range in price depending on what you are looking to have. But to be safe I would say average meal would be between R50 - R70.
