Time Out Market Cape Town opened its doors to the public at the V&A Waterfront. The food and cultural market brings the best of the city together under one roof with a curated mix of the best local chefs, drinks, and cultural experiences. Time Out Market Cape Town – the first to open on the African continent – merges food, drinks, local culture, music, and creativity into one vibrant space where guests come together around communal tables to enjoy the experience, surrounded by top chefs and their teams in action. The 30,000sq ft foodie destination has 13 kitchens, three bars plus a dedicated wine bar, as well as a stage for cultural experiences – with everything capturing the essence of the city.
“Our team spent over a year developing and curating Time Out Market Cape Town, identifying the very best of all types of cuisines that make our city the top culinary destination it is,” said Russ Meyer, General Manager of Time Out Market Cape Town. “We offer our guests a true taste of the city and are open every day, all day so you can come for breakfast, lunch, dinner, to enjoy our cultural events or just a drink; you can come on your own, with family, with friends – it’s a vibrant, fun space and there is something for everyone.”
Time Out Market CEO, Sandy Hayek added: “Time Out Market Cape Town brings a new culinary and cultural experience to Cape Town and the V&A Waterfront. We created this space to celebrate the city’s and region’s fantastic talents who proudly present Cape Town as a leading culinary and cultural hub. “To curate Time Out Market Cape Town’s lineup, we have tested and tasted a lot of food in the city to uncover the best home-grown talents – and then we invited the very best to join and we couldn’t be more proud that such outstanding chefs and restaurateurs have accepted our invitation. They really are the best of the city and together will represent the city’s diverse food scene, making Time Out Market Cape Town a place where you can get a true taste of the city.”

Time Out Market Cape Town is a new addition to a family of food and cultural markets. There are several Time Out Markets around the world – all dedicated to the best of the city they are in, but each is unique to its city and distinctly local, with a local team. Time Out Market is rooted in Time Out which started in 1968 at a kitchen table in London as a magazine about the best things to do in the city. It is now a trusted brand that has, for over 50 years, been curating the best of cities around the world.
