A variety of stalls selling antique furniture, china and glass, jewellery, books, art, ceramics, sculptures, ephemera, art deco and all things vintage will be sold at the market in St Ann's Road from 9.30am to 6pm on Saturday and 10.30am to 5.30pm on Sunday.
It is being supported by the London Mayor's Outer London Fund, which is helping increase growth of high streets across the city.
The Parker and Hammond Opticians in Northolt Road, South Harrow, is hosting a coffee morning as part of a worldwide event.
A raffle will be held and members of staff are baking cakes in aid of Macmillan at the world's biggest coffee morning event on Friday, September 28, from 10am to 12pm.
NORTHWICK Park Hospital's dedicated radio station has been shortlisted for an award at this year's National Hospital Radio Awards.
Radio Northwick Park, which broadcasts to the patients at the Watford Road based hospital, is up for Best Station Promotion.
The award ceremony, hosted by Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA), will bring together hospital radio stations form across the country at a gala dinner in Northampton.
Programme Controller at the station Adam Glynn said: "This is the eighth consecutive year that the HBA has nominated us for an award.
"It's real recognition for the consistent dedication from our volunteers and the high quality of our output."
Just last year the station, which is run by volunteers and broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week, celebrated its 40th birthday.
A STREET market is set to come to North Harrow for the first time and stallholders are sought for the landmark event.
The town centre manager is appealing for entrepreneurs or businesses who want to sell their wares, from florists to furniture sellers, artists to jewellery makers - with stalls provided for free.
Schools and community groups are also expected to provide music and dance throughout the weekend in the latest attempt to boost trade.
The trial market is part of attempts by Harrow Council, traders and the wider community to work together to help revitalise the area.
North Harrow town centre manager Rachel Jenman, who was appointed in the new role last year, said: "North Harrow has lots to offer with great shops, restaurants and cafes and a street market is a way of encouraging more residents to visit and spend in the area.
"We want a huge range of stallholders, from existing businesses to fledgling arts and crafts makers to come and sell their products. North Harrow has turned a corner in the last few months, with new businesses opening and events for the whole community creating a real buzz."
A late night shopping event with street performances and entertainment was held in North Harrow on Halloween last year to boost trade, followed by a Christmas shopping event in Station Road and Pinner Road in December.
The trial market, which is funded by a successful bid by Harrow Council to the Mayor of London's Outer London Fund, will be held on the weekend of March 10 and if successful could become a regular event.
