London’s first zero-emissions market is set to return to Hammersmith weekend.

This Sunday (13 February) will be the first in a series of monthly markets in 2022, and will be themed around Valentine’s Day, with entertainment and giveaways for Privilege Card holders throughout the afternoon.

It follows a pilot event in November 2021, attended by the Mayor of Hammersmith & Fulham, Cllr. PJ Murphy.

All stalls and materials will be delivered by zero-emissions transportation and stallholders, who are all local to Hammersmith & Fulham, will be supported by Parcels not Pollution, Hammersmith’s zero-emissions delivery service. In addition, all shoppers will be encouraged to travel sustainably, such as by foot, bicycle, e-scooter, or public transport.

The market will feature a range of merchandise including gifts, home accessories, clothes, art, jewellery, and crafts. Priority will be given to local traders, artists and small businesses operating within the borough of Hammersmith & Fulham.

Alongside the programme of musical entertainment, the market will be a hub of activity with free cycle training and bike maintenance sessions to encourage future zero-emissions travel for West Londoners.

The BID is also using this project to explore new venues in the town centre as part of their ambition to create a network of connected spaces that champion sustainability and local identity.

BID Director Patricia Bench said, “We’re really excited to be bringing back this Zero-Emissions Market after a successful launch last year. The event combines our commitment to supporting local small businesses, revitalising under-used spaces, and creating a sustainable, low-emissions town centre.”

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
