This market was one of the first, possibly the trailblazer, of many farmers’ markets in Perth. Before food miles and the word locavore became part of the popular mindset, this is where you came to get biodynamic meat, organic veg and fruit straight from the orchard. I’d go as far to say these markets are the pick of the bunch of Perth’s markets and are even worth the 30 minute drive to get here.
Years of establishment have resulted in an unparalleled variety of stalls. For a fairly small area, there’s a lot packed in. This is a market that knows its customers very well. Apart from produce and bakery stands, there are a few gourmet and ready-to-eat options available, just in case you don’t feel like cooking. Plus all the stalls are very food focused – for example, there are no stalls selling ponchos and other crap. Instead, an astounding number of small produce stands, all decently priced – mostly actual growers and not re-sellers – take up residence in the school’s quadrangle.
