Chiswick Flower Market opens Sunday 6th September
A group of West London residents are setting up a flower market in Chiswick, which will be the first new open-air market selling just plants and horticultural accessories to be created in London for 150 years.
The planned launch date is Sunday 6th September, 09.30 am – 3.00 pm with subsequent markets on the first Sunday of every month: 4th October, 1st November and 6th December in the Old Market Place outside the police station, opposite Waterstones in Chiswick High Rd. W4 2DW.
“We want it to be the Columbia Rd of West London” said Ollie Saunders, whose idea the market is.
They hope it will become a focal point which will attract people to Chiswick High Rd and revitalise the local economy.
The stalls are being carefully selected to provide a range of plants, from bulbs and bedding plants to exotic house plants. The traders range from experienced market traders who have operated at Columbia Rd for years and are excited to be expanding westward, to established Chiswick plant sellers and local start-ups, trying out their business model in a local market before investing in a shop.
