One of the best ways to reduce our environmental impact and connect to our community is to shop locally – so grab your reusable bags and check out some of the best farmer’s markets Perth has on offer!
Subi Farmers Markets
With a balanced mix of food stalls, fresh produce, artisanal goods and handcrafted wares, Subi is the perfect entry point for farmers markets newbies. Grab a coffee and a Los Amigos breakfast burrito (or maybe a Mr. Drummond’s crumpet if you have a sweet tooth) before checking out the amazing fresh produce. Wild Bakery will hook you up with all of your baked good needs, while Honest Goods Co. will provide the guilt-free treats.

Kyilla Community Farmers’ Market
Started by the Kyilla Primary School’s P&C Association as a community engagement initiative, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to Kyilla’s selection of fresh produce – not to mention their tempting breakfast options! And if you’re looking for something a bit stronger on a Saturday morning (hair of the dog, perhaps?) you’ll have to find Sin Gin’s stall – a botanical gin from their micro distillery based in the Murray Hotel.
Clieveden Street, North Perth
8:00am-11:30am Saturday mornings
Growers’ Green Farmers’ Market
Mark your calendars – the first Sunday of every month is the “Big Market” day at Growers’ Green, which sees the already booming market expand to offer vintage and pre-loved clothing, jewellery, crafts, gifts and more. But even on their regular Sundays, Growers’ Green has one of the best selections of food vendors of any market: traditional Persian by Parvin, African breakfasts, Malay satay, brunch burgers, crepes, Tom the Greek, food truck faves Eat No Evil… the list goes on! Check out their facebook for a full weekly vendor list, but whatever you do, make sure you go with an empty stomach.
Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield
8:00am-12:00pm Sunday mornings
Perth City Farm Farmer’s Market
Organic and biodynamic is the name of the game at Perth City Farm, with a selection of amazing local producers that includes their own volunteer-run stall, selling both plants and vegetables harvested on-site. Now THAT is local! If you’re looking to eco-overhaul, check out sellers like SugarWrap and their plant-based kitchen plastics.

Kalamunda Farmers Market
Looking to get out of the big smoke?

Perth Home Grown
Inner city (and I mean, as inner city as you can get) dwellers need not travel far to get their weekend market fix. With not just fresh produce but heaps of locally made, sustainability focused gifts, homewares and art, as well as food vendors from the CBD and surrounds. An added bonus? Weekend party animals won’t need to set an alarm, this market goes til 4!

Mount Claremont Farmers’ Market
