Chiswick Cheese Market 

About

Chiswick Cheese Market was created in 2021 by a group of women who are passionate about Chiswick and cheese! Among the ranks are dedicated foodies, restaurateurs, chefs, cooks, caterers and cookbook authors.

The market takes place on the third Sunday of every month with producers and purveyors of outstanding cheese bringing cheese back to Chiswick (or Cheesewick as it was historically known.)

This forum, where cheese producers and enthusiasts come together over the very best cheeses from Britain and beyond, has been such a great success, the group would now like to give back. Accordingly, the Chiswick Cheese Market Cheesemakers Grant is an initiative that has been set up to encourage new cheesemakers into the business of making delicious cheese .
