Once a month the village streets are closed to traffic (except for local residents to access their properties) and become a bustling market of over 35 stalls, all from independent traders. Most are food-related and attend regularly, whereas the arts and crafts stalls rotate month by month.
The Kew Village Market is run by the community – all the organisers are volunteers and live in the area – for the community, and one of its most important aims is to help local causes. All the profits made by the Kew Village Market Committee are donated to charity; thanks to the support of residents and stallholders. So for over £40,000 has been donated.
