A brand new flower market for Chiswick!
Flower markets have such an appeal that many West Londoners regularly make the trek across London to the famous Sunday morning flower market at Columbia Rd. But trek no more, as a group of West London residents have partnered up to launch the Chiswick Flower Market, the first new flower market in London for 150 years. It opens on Sunday 6th Sept and will take place on the first Sunday of every month thereafter. Fresh blooms and potted plants will be available from specialist growers and stall holders including two of Columbia Road’s own!
