Traffic-free Christmas Market

The first of two traffic-free Christmas markets will be taking place on North End Road 28 November. As well as the ever-popular fruit and vegetable stalls selling value produce, there will be over 100 new stalls offering everything from festive treats, handmade decorations and crafts, food stalls, cakes and much more.

The market is a part of Hammersmith and Fulham Council’s drive, together with the North End Action Group, to revive the major high street.

Switching on this year’s North End Road Christmas lights will be fashion designer and Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson. The 28 November Christmas market will also feature live music, and children’s fun fare, carol singers, and unusual entertainment, including stilt walkers Glitter Belles, and balloon modeling elves.

Cllr Andrew Jones, head of economic development and regeneration in the borough, said: “Resident told us how much they enjoyed the range of stalls and the atmosphere at our previous traffic-free markets in North End Road, so we’re doing it twice for Christmas. There will no buses, lorries or cars, just fantastic stalls with loads of Christmas presents, lots to eat and festive entertainment”.

“These markets are a great opportunity for people who want to put a toe in the water as a stall trader. In the summer, two in five of the stall holders were first-timers and a number have gone on to run a stall full time.”
