Markets in Chiswick worth visiting
As Chiswick Estate Agents we recognise the appeal of the W4 area, it’s known for its village feel and strong community so it’s of little surprise that there is such a buzz surrounding every Chiswick Market.
Those who live here flock to support local businesses and other independent retailers who showcase their items, not just appealing to those who live in Chiswick, but visitors travel from all of London and even beyond to attend the many markets run in Chiswick.
From the Flower Market to the Antique and Vintage Market, the Chiswick Food Market and now the Cheese Market, we take a look at each of the markets, when they’re open and what’s on offer.
Chiswick Flower Market
Chiswick Flower Market – first Sunday of each month.
The Chiswick Flower Market launched in 2020 and has been a huge success, in fact it has been chosen by the national High Streets Task Force as an example of a community project that is revitalising the local high road.
Run by a passionate team of local residents the Flower Market is a not-for-profit enterprise, any profits are invested back into the market or the High Road.

The Antique and Vintage Market will be held outdoors on Chiswick High Road near to the Police Station.
Chiswick Cheese Market
Chiswick Cheese Market – third Sunday of each month.
Chiswick Cheese Market is run once a month on Chiswick High Road, outside the George IV pub, where stallholders will sell over 150 artisan cheeses and provisions including bread, crackers, charcuterie kitchenalia and more .
Readers might be interested to know that Chiswick was in fact originally known as Cheesewick, recorded in c.1000 with the old name meaning ‘Cheese Farm’. The area by the river at Duke’s Meadows is thought to have been the location of an annual cheese fair right up until the 18th Century.

The address given for finding the market is Market Drive, Chiswick, W4 2RX. It is located behind the flats opposite Chiswick School and is well sign posted when you’re in the area.
From produce stalls that sell vegetables, meat, cheese, olives and fish to specialist grocers, chocolatiers, juice makers and ready to eat food including pizza and Mexican – there’s a huge variety on offer.
Duck Pond Market
The Duck Pond Market at Chiswick House and Grounds is held on an ongoing basis on the first Sunday of each month from 10am to 4pm.
The Duck Pond Market includes a broad selection of local, ethical and sustainable independent businesses including food, gifts, plants and crafts.
Chiswick Car Boot Sale
Perhaps not strictly a market in the same way as the above are but Chiswick is rare in that it has a wonderful car boot sale offering visitors a fantastic opportunity to purchase second hand and vintage items.
Chiswick School Car Boot Sale is held on the first Sunday of each month (except January).
Chiswick Property Market
The above includes those that are run regularly but there are often also seasonal markets that take place so be sure to watch out for local announcements on sites such as Chiswick W4.
Buyers seeking a home in W4 are drawn to the area for a host of reasons; the strong community, independent stores, green spaces, top schools and of course the many Chiswick Markets that take place through the month only add to the appeal of the area.
