Next Market – Sunday 5th August 10am – 2pm

Stalls next market - Sunday 1st July 2018

(this page will normally be updated the weekend before with the stalls for the next market)

Make shopping a local pleasure and check below for your favourite market traders.

Kew Village Market Stall

On Sunday 1st July we’ll be again selling  Kew Village Market – Taste the Music, a brilliant compilation CD of 12 great tracks from favourite bands who’ve starred in our sunshine-yellow music marquee. The perfect thank-you gift, it costs just £6 and, as everyone involved has given their time and talents for free, all the profits go to local charities. We’ll also have the Kew Village Market Cookbook and the excellent digest of local history The Story of Kew and stylish KVM tote bags.

What's on 1st July 2018

  • Our charity stall will be taken by The Countess of Derby charity.
  • It’s looking good for another gloriously sunny market and there’ll certainly be music to match with two superb bands with a Latin twist: Banda Bomba with their irresistible salsa-style Latin jazz; and four-piece favourites Shifty Little Sister’s eclectic mix of jazzy, blues and fruity Latin grooves, with the gorgeous vocals (and trumpet!) of Christina Al-Wakil. (As it happens, both bands feature on Taste the Music, our own CD, selling for a song at the KVM stall.)

 

MEAT & FISH

The Portland Scallop Co

Jamie Walker is based near Chesil Beach and most of the fish he sells at Sunday’s market will have been caught on the Dorset or Devon coast on Friday. What he sells depends on what the boats bring in, so his stall will have what’s in season from a range including bass, bream, monkfish, lemon sole, mullet, plaice, turbot, brill, lemon or dover sole, oysters and lobster, as well as rope-grown mussels and dived scallops. He’s also likely to bring whole cooked crab, home-made crab soup and fishcakes. Most of his fish will already be gutted and scaled, but any other preparation can be done at the market.

Hunts Hill Farm

At John and Georgina Emerson’s farm in Normandy, near Guildford, the beef is grass-fed and allowed to graze all year round; their chicken and ducks are all free-range and dry-plucked; and the free-range pork is mostly from saddlebacks. They’ll also be bringing a variety of different flavoured sausages and free-range duck and hen eggs to the market and cooking hot bacon, sausage and pulled pork rolls. www.huntshillfarm.com

Kew Brewery

Cheers to local brewer David Scott whose ales have become regular sell-outs at the market. Using only English hops and malts, they are unrefined natural beers sustainably brewed less than a mile from Kew Gardens, which also inspired names such as Pagoda pale ale and richer Botanic amber ale.

Jamie Walker is based near Chesil Beach and most of the fish he sells at Sunday’s market will have been caught on the Dorset or Devon coast on Friday.
