Makers Landing, a V&A Waterfront initiative, is the first of its kind in the South African food-business-incubator and food-market space. Our mission is to create a destination where local food entrepreneurs can access state-of-the-art shared kitchen spaces and equipment, as well as support services, networking and learning opportunities.

For food lovers, we curate unique culinary experiences and events that showcase the diverse and vibrant food scene in Cape Town and South Africa.
