Unless they are service animals, pets are not allowed inside the Market. But, don’t worry: your fur-babies are welcome to join you in the outside seating areas of the Market.

There is no ATM in the Market, but luckily you won’t need one! Time Out Market Cape Town is a cashless space, and vendors accept most major credit and debit cards. If you need cash, you’ll find ATMs in the V&A Waterfront shopping malls.

Check out the menu above each venue’s counter, step up and place your order. Feel free to chat to the chefs and kitchen crew if you have any questions about what’s on offer. You can then simply tap/swipe/insert your credit or debit card to pay. You’ll be given a buzzer that alerts you when your order is ready, so you can grab a seat while you wait.

Do you offer delivery or takeaways?

We don’t offer delivery at the moment, but watch this space! Some vendors will package your order in takeaway containers for you to enjoy at home. Feel free to ask.

Are the bars open at the same time as the kitchens?

Yup… good food needs a great drink! But please note that both the bars and kitchens close 30 minutes before the Market, so get your last orders in early.
