Championing sustainability and local farms and businesses, Perth’s markets are some of the best and most environmentally responsible in the country. We’ve found some of the top markets in and around the city area to spend a day hunting for bargains!
A bit over half an hour out of Perth is the cute and picturesque town of Kalamunda, and on the first Saturday of the month, the Rotary Club hosts Western Australia’s premier craft market at the Central Mall and Town Square. Only open to vendors who make or grow their own goods, the market showcases our state’s best handmade crafts, candles, flowers, plants, garden ornaments and a whole lot more. A great little spot for a day trip, stop off at the nearby Fairbossen Café and Winery and sample the boutique ciders at Core Cider House once you’ve finished your shopping.

At Malaga Markets, come for the shopping, but stay for the entertainment! You can find the usual fresh produce, fashion and accessories, body products, homewares, toys, gifts, and souvenirs here, but you’ll love the karaoke competition nights, Kids’ Night with activities and prizes, and much more. You can even bring along your pet pooch for some quality pampering and grooming at Forever Pets.
