Although in general prices were not cheap, the quality of the various crafts was high. There was also a great variety of outlets under the one roof.

Such a cook place where entrepreneurs are selling their goods like clothes, souvenirs, shoes, coffee or food. The top floor offers space to rent and has Workshop 17 - a place to connect entrepreneurs with others or potential investors. Go and support them!

What a great find at The Waterfront, so many stalls selling beautiful African arts and crafts. I love how unique some of the items are, I just wanted to buy everything. It’s all undercover as well so no excuse, they’re open rain or shine. Bring...More
