MADE ON THE LEFT
Now in its sixth year, Made on the Left is a high-quality
handmade designer market, for shoppers who love
unique objects and supporting the local artists who make
them. State Theatre Centre, Jul 28.
This pop-up market sells everything unique and boutique
from local artists, designers and entrepreneurs of the
handmade. Westfield Carousel, Aug 24-25.
This quarterly market – arguably Perth’s best –
brings together 150 artists, designers, stylists,
craftspeople and gourmets to sell their wares. Be
sure to go early if you want to avoid the crowds.
University of Western Australia, Sep 8.
These popular and long-running markets attract throngs
of weekend shoppers keen to stock up on locally grown
produce. Visit at lunchtime on any given Friday and you’ll
see half of the Scoop office crowding the various food
stalls. Subiaco, open every Friday-Monday.
As popular with the locals as with the tourists, The Freo
Markets have been a favourite since they first opened
in 1897. The Yard is where to stock up on fresh produce,
meat, seafood, cheeses and wholefoods. It’s also where
to find a snack (our favourites are the fish tacos from
Little Chihuahua) or a coffee while you browse The Hall,
home to stall upon stall of gifts, knick-knacks, handmade
treasures and art. Fremantle, open every Friday-Sunday.
WINTER SUPPER CLUB
Think cold weather means the end of street food? Think
again. Perth Town Hall is hosting the second annual
Winter Supper Club, a colourful European-style food
market and also the perfect start to an evening spent
enjoying a little culture. While you chow down, some
of the Winter Arts Season’s best acts will be performing.
We can’t think of a better way to spend a chilly Friday
night. Perth Town Hall, Jul 26 and Aug 30.
Willing to travel for your supper? Try the Toodyay
International Food Festival, part of the Avon Descent
festivities (Aug 3). Or, a month later, there’s the delicious
Taste of Chittering (Sep 7).
TOP 3 FARMERS’ MARKETS
MT CLAREMONT | This is the market for
serious shoppers. In fact, local chefs including
Hadleigh Troy from Restaurant Amusé, Must
Wine Bar’s Russell Blaikie and Matt Stone
from Greenhouse can often be found sourcing
produce for their restaurants at these markets.
Mt Claremont, Saturdays 7:30-11:30am.
SUBI | Located at Subiaco Primary School,
the Subi Farmers Markets have a real family
feel about them. Kids run amok on the grass
while parents and locals chat over coffee
and fresh pastries. Stallholders include those
selling fresh bread, flowers, coffee, fruit and
vegies. Subiaco, Saturdays 8am-noon.
GROWERS’ GREEN | Without a doubt
Fremantle’s best farmers market, Growers’ Green
could be mistaken for a village fete. People
come for more than shopping – they chat with
the friendly stallholders, listen to live music
and, on the first Sunday of the month, shop for
clothes, crafts and gifts at the Big Market. South
Fremantle High School, Sundays 8am-12:30pm.
