On the first Sunday of every month* between 10 am and 2pm
‘It’s like being in France!’ said a visitor emerging from Kew Gardens station to the colourful spread of stalls selling the finest, freshest artisan food and the best local crafts. Kew Village Market has become quite the place to meet friends and neighbours, to shop sociably and maybe hang out for lunch, with great street food and live music from our sunshine-yellow marquee.
Once a month the village streets are closed to traffic and become a bustling market of over 40 stalls, all from independent traders. Two-thirds sell food and most are with us every month while the crafts stalls tend to be more occasional. To help you plan your shopping, a week before each market you can find a list of the month’s stalls and their seasonal produce. And if you’re interested in taking a stall pitch, all the details are here.
Run by Volunteers & supporting local Charities
Kew Village Market is run entirely by local volunteers and all our operating profits are donated to local good causes. Thanks to the support of residents, visitors and stallholders, around £45,000 has been given to neighbourhood charities since the market was launched in 2011. To find out more, or perhaps to nominate a worthy cause, visit our charity page. And if you know of, or play in, a local band that fancies a spot in the KVM limelight, see our music page.
We hope you enjoy visiting Kew Village Market as much as we enjoy organising it.
