Spoiled for choice
It’s such a sociable way to do your shopping – that’s what we’re often told. Kew Village Market is a great place to bump into friends and neighbours and perhaps hang out for a bite of lunch. There’s a fantastic choice of delicious street food, from Noggin Farm’s sausage or bacon butties to Carolyn Dawson’s super spread of salads and slices; and from galettes both savoury and sweet from La Crêpe de Delices to subtly spiced Eritrean and Ethiopian vegetarian specialities from new favourite Abycina.
And while you’re munching, what better entertainment than the U-Kew-Lele Orchestra? This month our home-grown band will be joined by players from Teddington and Hammersmith – there should be about 16 strummers in all (the nearest we can get to a ukelele flash mob!) playing medleys of musical sunshine.
We look forward to welcoming four new-to-Kew stallholders (see here for a full list of April’s traders). Local designer and dressmaker Lisa Wagner will be offering a preview of her new ready-to-wear capsule collection for Spring/Summer 2014 and Gillian Attwood is selling beautiful wooden products she’s designed and made herself. On the food front, Sertinly Good is excellent news for any with allergies in the family, with delicious, freshly baked Free From cakes and sweet treats to buy. And gingerQ offers hand-decorated gingerbread biscuits, this month with an Easter theme – there’ll be chicks and eggs and bunny biscuits to be snapped up. On which theme, do stop by Meadowsweet Flowers – perhaps to pick up an Easter willow tree or a floral ring in beautiful pastel colours for Spring?
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday 6th April from 10am to 2pm.
