We Perthlings love a good market! Whether it’s to eat, shop, or hunt through other people’s trash for treasures, you can find a good portion of the Perth population at some kind of market most weekends—even in winter, and that’s really saying something.
Perth is home to a bunch of monthly markets, most of which are farmers’ markets sporting fresh, local produce at great prices. The winter months start to bring a whole new haul of produce to be picked up at these amazing markets! There’s also some mouth-watering hawkers’ markets holding out through winter around the city—think tantalising international food, delicious treats and entertainment! June also sees a few artisan and vintage pop-ups: get ready for hunting through retro fashion, a surge in your sustainable goods collection, and a browse through homemade wares.
Forget the mainstream shops—here are all the markets you need to visit in Perth in June!

Subiaco Farmers Market at Subiaco Primary | Every Saturday Morning In June
Though we still lament the closure of the original Subi markets (RIP), the Subiaco Farmers Markets always was and continues to be a darn good place to spend your Saturday mornings.

We can’t decide!) and a coffee, then do the weekly shop, choosing not only from an array of fresh, fruit and veg, but also from a bunch of delicious and inventive creations - we recommend the smoked tomatoes. Also, if you get on the right fortnightly rotation, you can eat all the Portuguese Tarts from Tapasman. Did we mention it’s dog friendly? Though keep your pooch on a lead of course!
