Food Market Chiswick
Open every Sunday from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm, come rain or shine, except for very exceptional closures – for example Easter Sunday and the day of the London Prudential cycle race in July / August.
The Food Market Chiswick is a collection of stalls where the stallholders are also the producers of the food, so the food is fresh and seasonal. There are stallholders offering prepared food: a selection of street food, handmade bread, cakes and pastries, and those offering the ingredients: fine rare breed meats, fish, fresh seasonal vegetables, unpasteurised milk and artisan cheeses. The market puts you, the customer, in direct contact with the farmers, fishermen, growers and bakers, so you can talk to them directly about their produce. It’s also a great place to sit and read the paper over a cup of coffee while the kids run round Dukes Meadows and play in the adventure playground.
The market is run by the Dukes Meadows Trust, and was set up to fund the upkeep of the park. It is a community enterprise with an interesting history. Market Development Manager Kathleen Healy talks to Bridget Osborne about the award winning charity, Dukes Meadows Trust and how it led the regeneration of the meadows to create a beautiful riverside park.
