The concept of a Time Out Market is very simple: you combine all the best restaurants, chefs and artists under the same roof and create a buzzing atmosphere for locals and visitors alike who can indulge in the city’s best food, music and crafts. It all started out in 2014 when Lisbon/Spain opened the first Time Out Market of its kind. It is now the most popular attraction in Portugal with over 3.9 millions visitors per year.
Since then, many other cities in the world have copied the successful concept (including Miami, New York, Boston, Montreal, Chicago and Dubai) and now the first Time Out Market in Africa is coming to Cape Town at the end of 2023!
The V&A Waterfront is the perfect spot for hosting such an amazing concept and we all can expect a fabulous new market to visit very soon. It is said that the space will span 27,000 square feet and features fourteen kitchens, four bars and one stage. With approximately 750 seats, guests will be able to sit indoors or quayside with the spectacular view of Table Mountain as a backdrop. Local top-chefs, high-end restaurateurs, award-winning mixologists and rising music talents all come together to create an unforgettable experience to all the visitors.
While you can get a taste of the finest food, delicious cocktails and listen to extraordinary music, you will also be able to shop around for precious arts and crafts and fresh produce from the much-loved and well-known market vendors. So it’s going to be a place for everyone including families, locals, visitors and hipsters alike.
We’ll keep you posted on any new information about the Time Out Market as they become available.
