Chiswick Flower Market is back and will be taking place on Sunday 6 December –  a great event for presents and for cheering up the house for Christmas. They will also be selling Christmas wreaths and decorations but not Christmas trees so as not to compete with Chiswick’s existing tree sellers. “We said we wanted to make the Chiswick Flower Market into the Columbia Rd market of West London. I think we can say we’ve done it!” said the Flower Market organisers.

Their plant creche will be back so you can leave your plants while you do other shopping in the High Rd, or enjoy a cup of coffee or a meal. A team of volunteer cyclists will also be standing by to pedal your produce home for you for free (within Chiswick) if you wish.

As last time, the market will extend down Devonshire Rd. It will open from 08.30 – 09.30 for ‘tender perennials’ – people over 70 or who are vulnerable to infection – to shop in peace and quiet, with a friend to do the carrying if needed. Register for (free) tickets on the Flower Market website – www.chiswickflowermarket.com.  Everyone else is welcome from 9.30am – 3.00pm and the organisers ask you to please wear a mask at the market.

Also new from the Chiswick Flower Market team is a Christmas Flower Market  gift bag full of lovely things made by people locally. It includes a selection of amazing products from our local independents, from the famous and well-established to the intriguing and new. This is an exclusive and original offer (limited numbers).

Contents include chocolates from Michelin-starred La Trompette, coffee from Chiswick’s very own secret roastery, apple juice pressed from Chiswick’s fruit trees, honey from local award-winning hives, antique flower prints, blended teas, dried flowers, bulbs and seeds all sourced from Chiswick and lots more.

All this in the Chiswick Flower Market’s very own sustainable jute bag. Cost is £75 including free delivery within the Chiswick area (total retail value over £100). Profits go back to the market and the High Road helping the Organisers to run the market and promote Chiswick. Buy it as a gift or just as a present to yourself for surviving 2020!

The Chiswick Flower Market is run by volunteers who are all local residents.
If you’d like to get involved in the market, as a marshal, or offering your time and skills in another way, please get in touch via info@chiswickflowermarket.com
