Welcome to Kew Village Market!
It’s on the first Sunday of the month from 10 am to 2pm (except April 2015 – next market 3rd May 2015 – no market Easter Sunday 5th April)
‘It’s like being in France!’ said one visitor, emerging from Kew Gardens station to the colourful array of stalls selling everything from artisan bread and cheeses, the freshest meat, fish and game, deli delights and sweet treats to the best local crafts.
Once a month the village streets are closed to traffic (except for local residents to access their properties) and become a bustling market of over 35 stalls, all from independent traders. Most are food-related and attend regularly, whereas the arts and crafts stalls rotate month by month. To help you plan your shopping in advance, a week before each market you can find a list of the month’s stalls and their seasonal produce. And if you’re interested running your own stall, apply here.
The Kew Village Market is run by the community – all the organisers are volunteers and live in the area – for the community, and one of its most important aims is to help local good causes. All the profits made by the Kew Village Market Committee are donated to charity; thanks to the support of residents and stallholders, since the market was launched cheques totalling almost £15,000 have been given to neighbourhood charities. To find out more, or perhaps to nominate a worthy cause, see our Charity page.
We hope you enjoy visiting Kew Village Market as much as we enjoy organising it. Looking forward to seeing you on:
- 3rd May
- 7th June
- 5th July
- 2nd August
- 6th September
