Firstly and very importantly – Hello Buttercup!
Guest blog by Lucy Cufflin, of the Chiswick Cheese Market
Thank you to all who entered our ‘Name the Cheesewick Cow’ competition at the last market. We are pleased to announce that the winning name is ‘Buttercup’ – well done Greg Larsen for your creative thinking putting the name forward. Buttercup will be attending each and every market so please come and say hello to her – she’s perfect for a festive selfie as she will be looking very Christmassy on the 17th #cheesewick.
Thank you to all at The Barley Mow Centre (Barley Moo Barn as we like to call it) who have taken Buttercup into their hearts and given her a new home when she is not at the market. We had a lovely wine and cheese tasting evening with everyone at the centre to welcome her.
There is no doubt that Christmas is a time for sharing, so come along to the market, sample your way along the stalls and build your perfect Christmas cheese board – what better time to share some of the best cheeses in the word with friends and family?
We love our Stilton and we would not be without it, but join us on Market HQ to try some other ‘blues’ and perhaps add something new to your festive cheese selection – Pevensey and Oxford Blues, Stichelton, or what about a smoked Stilton? Come along and you might just find a new festive favourite.

With Christmas chutney from Ealing Relish (perfect for those turkey sandwiches) and wonderful Xmas pud from Steff’s Kitchen, you can add some truly handmade flavours to your Christmas eats. Wood and Leg Smokery is offering a hamper of his hand smoked meats which is sure to delight any charcuterie lovers over the festive period.

Every single stall has extra special delicious offerings for you to share with friends and family over Christmas so come along and browse, taste, sample and take home some utterly marvellous cheeses and accoutrements that will make your Christmas truly extra special. So that’s the sharing part of Christmas sorted – what about the giving?
So many gifts from special gift packs of olive oil and balsamic, cheese selections and handcrafted wooden cheese mice to cheer up your cheeseboard. We even have a cheese lovers board game on sale and don’t forget our legendary Cheesewick tea towels and totes – what could be better to add to any cheese lover’s Christmas stocking?
