More markets planned for Chiswick

Antiques and Vintage market

There will be an antiques market on Chiswick High Rd next Sunday, 13 December. Jennifer Titmuss, who runs a regular antiques and vintage market in St Albans, has been granted a licence to place stalls in Old Market Place, where Chiswick Flower Market is held, and all along the south side of the High Rd as far as the South Beach shop at 123 Chiswick High Road.

“A monthly antique and vintage market would bring visitors, vibrancy and opportunity to an already popular and atmospheric community, help improve the potential for local shops and businesses, particularly after such a hard and terrible year” Jennifer told LB Hounslow’s licensing committee.

The antiques and vintage market will be held on the second Sunday of every month.

Cheese and provisions markets

Lucy Cufflin, one of the organisers of the Cookbook Festival and regular supper clubs, has put in an application to run food markets on the third and fourth Sundays of the month. With the Chiswick Flower market on the first Sunday of the month, that would mean a market in the High Rd every Sunday.

Lucy’s markets would be confined to the Old Market Place outside Chsiwick Police Station. One would be a cheese market. Chiswick is under served for cheese she thinks, given the incredible variety there is on offer. The other market would be a specialist provisions market.

While there is no shortage of food markets – one which has been running for 21 years at Dukes Meadows and another recently opened at Ravenscourt Park – she thinks there is room for another. What it would bring, she says, is a variety of specialist provisions which you can’t get elsewhere in Chiswick.

Her application is currently being considered by LB Hounslow.
