The stylish Food Lover’s Market in the Icon Building in central Cape Town has been described as a “theatre of food” where every element combines to create a unique food experience. Although customers are treated to a rich diversity of gourmet cuisine, those on the move looking for a quick meal or coffee on the run are just as well served. At the Coffee Bar customers can spend a moment to unwind with a cappuccino or café latté, while catching up on the daily news with a newspaper. Those looking to treat themselves to something extra special can even order a croissant or a delicious piece of cheesecake to go with it.

The Food Lover’s Market have taken a lesson out of the Italian’s book and added a classic Italian Pizzeria in store. Here customers can order woodfired pizzas and divine paninis made the Italian way. The smell of freshly-baked artisan-style bread will lead you to the Bakery department. Once there, you’ll be tempted with everything from heavenly apple pie to hearty French loaves. It’s enough to please even the fussiest connoisseur. Then, for those with a healthy appetite, they have introduced a huge Hot Foods emporium where tasty hot dishes such as roast chicken, bobotie, eisbeins, spare ribs and lasagna are served.


Freshstop, Fruit & Veg City’s own fast food brand, is the place to refresh your senses with a groovy smoothie or fresh fruit salad, or fill up with a wide selection of gourmet sandwiches, made fresh each day. For the health-conscious there will also be a variety of low G.I. salads, as well as other designer salads.

If you’re in the mood for Japanese, the Sushi Bar is just the place to go. Customers can take a seat and decide what they want as enticing delicacies, prepared by Japanese sushi masters, roll past on a bamboo conveyer belt. This is in keeping with international trends that are now all the rage in cities such as New York, Paris and London. The smells of from the Pasta Bar might just momentarily transport you to the rolling hills of Tuscany, as their chefs display their visible passion for great cuisine.


Many of the design-elements and ideas for specialist in-store departments were influenced by international trends. This makes Food Lover’s Market the first South African retail store that is able to compete with the trend-setting retail chains of Europe, North America and Asia.

Come and discover a glamourous new fresh concept in-store retail – The Food Lover's Market. With the focus on exceptionally fresh, quality fruits and vegetables and stunning interior store décor, The Food Lover's Market is truly an oasis for those who appreciate great food.
