Italian Market to visit Mill Hill in July

On Friday 8 and Saturday 9 July, Mill Hill town centre will get a real taste of Italy. The Italia in Piazza market will be visiting Mill Hill Broadway, with a selection of delicious foods and quality handbags, both days from 9am.  The market will be located outside Santander bank, and continue up towards Mill Hill Wines.

So many things can be associated with Italy – fast cars, sunshine, and football – but perhaps the biggest thing is food. Italy’s passion and love for food is second to none. Italia in Piazza sources the best fresh produce – from the roots of Calabria, famous for its chillies, to the port city of Genova, famous for its pesto. Most of the market’s cheeses come from Lombardy, as does the torrone, or soft nougat. Their olives come from a leading producer in Puglia, who uses traditional harvesting methods. The market’s specialty products also include fresh pasta, cakes and biscuits, olive oil, cured meats, hot food and more.

Local specialist wine shop, Mill Hill Wines, will also have a selection of Italian wines on display outside their store as part of the market.

The Italian Market is part of a calendar of visiting markets for Mill Hill, an initiative organised by Mill Hill Neighbourhood Forum and Vibe Market. The markets aim to increase dwell time and footfall for the town centre, and add vibrancy to the high street.

Upcoming events in Mill Hill town centre include a much anticipated return visit by the French Market on 11 and 12 November and plans for Christmas festivities in the town centre in December including both stalls and performers drawn from the local community.

John Gillett, chair of Mill Hill Neighbourhood Forum, said: “This is just one of the many initiatives we have for Mill Hill, to improve our Town Centre – do come along and also let us have your ideas for developing Mill Hill.”

Osita Udenson, managing director for Vibe Market, said: “We are excited to bring Italia in Piazza to Mill Hill. As a visiting market, its specialist products will complement the existing offer on the High Street and bring a taste of the Mediterranean to London.”

Three hours of free parking are available on Saturdays and Sundays are free in the ‘pay by phone’ Bunns Lane car park. Most side streets are free to park from 12 noon.
