We’ve been rounding up our favourite festive markets we’ll be hitting up this year (check out the list here), but we’ll be honest – there’s one that we’re particularly excited for.
The East End Festive Marketplace will be taking over the State Buildings forecourt and Perth Town Hall undercroft, bringing together some of the state’s most talented makers for two days.
The markets are a collaborative effort between the State Buildings, Fremantle Arts Centre and Second Life Market, and feature a huge range of designer wares, pre-loved and vintage clothing and plenty of tasty treats from Cono Gelato, Freo institution Peggy’s and superstar baker Natasha Brownfield.
Stallholders will include a truly impressive list of WA creatives, including Deli Mates, Emma Buswell, do° Pottery, Emma Lindegaard, Kura Studio, Manner Furniture, Many Peaks Assembly, Shop Shannon Malone, Nagula Jarndu, Neighbourhood Press, Siân Boucherd, Turner & Turner, Sisa Studio and many many more – check out the full list below:
You’ll also be able to browse the State Buildings’ impressive selection of retail offerings, which include artisanal delights from Sue Lewis Chocolatier, Shari-Vari Records, Japanese knives from Chefs Edge, Teassential, Edicole bookstand and more.
Make sure your goodies are ready to be gifted with a visit to the wrapping station, in partnership with Juluwarlu Art Group.
Keeping the vibes high, Ningaloo Records will be spinning tunes all weekend in the undercroft.
The markets will be running from 3PM to 7PM on December 9, and 11AM to 3PM on December 10.
