With live music, street entertainers, food trucks and the chance to shop local, it runs from 11am to 7pm, along King Street and in Lyric Square.

Small independent businesses running stalls include Wadoo Clothing, known for their traditional African clothing, accessories and jewellery and Silently Healing who will have scented candles and diffuser for sale.

Syreeta, founder of Silently Healing said: “I’m very excited about taking part in the summer market, I’ll be selling candles, wax melts, room mist and diffusers – all handmade by me. Please stop by and ‘Hi’.”

"I can’t wait to run my handmade jewellery stall for the second year in a row," added Faith, kidpreneur and founder of jewellery company Kiki Cute. 

"I started Kiki Cute Jewellery when I was 9 and I sell bracelets, necklaces, rings and phone charms. It’s so exciting to still bump into customers in Hammersmith and hope they come again because it's such a fun event."

Building on the success of last year’s markets, our Hammersmith summer market is back to boost trade and local footfall in the popular high street.

Festival of family fun

King Street will be busy throughout the day with visits from street entertainer Julie, our incredibly tall tea lady, two bloomin’ tall flowers and a pair of mirrorball men to name a few.

And for our younger visitors there’ll be Herbie the baby triceratops, and a show by Mr Bones, an all singing and dancing marionette puppet.

Soundtracking the day are local artists and crowd favourites including ABBA tribute act ABBA Stars, ZHL Strings, award winning cabaret songstress Chanel No5, and Reya Jane with her Nashville sound.
