Started in 1974 as an informal and unlicensed market in an area of derelict land owned by Camden Council next to the nearby junction of Fellows Road and Winchester Road. It was describes a market selling homemade food, secondhand clothes and books as well as bric-à-brac and plants.
At the end of 1981 the original site was redeveloped and the market moved to a new location close to the sports centre.
Camden Council designated the pedestrianised western end of Eton Avenue as a street market from 2003 allowing Swiss Cottage Market and Swiss Cottage Farmers Market a permanent home. Swiss Cottage is the youngest of Camden’s street markets. On Wednesdays it hosts Swiss Cottage Farmers’ Market which is run by London Farmers’ Markets and started in 1999.
In November 2019 Prince Charles and his wife Camilla visited to mark the Farmers Market’s twentieth anniversary. Charles had visited the market once before in 2000.
