OHi Markets

One of the newest markets in Perth, OHi Market Lathlain plays host to a trendy crowd in the way of OHi Pizzeria and Laika coffee. Locally sourced food and baked goods dominate this market, with some of Perth’s best coffee served from the neighbouring coffee house, Laika. Sweet sounds of live music fill the air with local musicians alternating each week. Don’t be surprised if you run into some Australian football players; the West Coast Eagles’ training ground is right next door.

What began as a school initiative to raise money for the local school committee has now grown into one of Perth’s most popular farmers’ markets. Located in Kyilla Primary School in the suburb of North Perth, you’ll find young families filling their tote bags with fresh produce sourced directly from growers, and fish from the local fishmonger, Red Gill Fish. One visit is all you need to see how this market has quickly become popular for its family-friendly atmosphere and quality produce. Ask the volunteers where to pick up one of their famous bacon and egg wraps, packed with farm-fresh produce and their signature home-made picante sauce on your way out.

Midland Farmers’ Market

The Sunday market at Midland opened in the early 1980s and is Perth’s second-oldest farmers’ market. Be sure to wear your active gear as the market provides a great opportunity to visit the John Forrest National Park after you’ve picked up some local goods. With bands, entertainment and craft stalls available alongside fruit and vegetables, it’s a packed day out for everyone.

Perth City Farm Markets

Located in the non-profit community centre and epic barn, Perth City Farm, these markets run weekly every Saturday. The market overflows with local foods and home-made baked goods. Vendors tend to focus on organic and biodynamic produce with environmentally friendly wares. There’s also a play pit to keep the kids entertained, and some pretty spectacular street art, so make sure you bring your camera to capture it all.

Farmers’ Market on Manning

Shady trees and green grass abound this farmers market, making it the perfect place to bring along your kids and your pooch. Here, you’ll find young families and groups of friends languishing on the lawn with picnics. The Manning farmers’ market offers a range of fresh, organic produce directly from growers. With potted plants and flowers available to purchase, you’ll have a fun-filled family day out at the market.

Growers’ Green Farmers’ Market

If your vegetables are looking a little tired, and you need some fresh produce, head to Growers’ Green Farmers’ Market. This community-run market is a well-loved Sunday ritual for Fremantle residents. Here, you’ll find over 50 stalls selling a range of goods – including farm-fresh eggs, an animal farm and a face-painting stall for the kids – right next to organic local produce.

Subi Farmers’ Market

Another of Perth’s oldest farmers markets, the Subi Farmers’ Market offers an array of fresh and organic produce, as well as meat, fish and baked goods. Every Saturday this lively market is filled with locally sourced produce and growers from all over Western Australia. The breakfast options are the main drawcard, including baked goods, egg-based dishes and of course, coffee. Be sure to head to popular bakery, Strange Grains for your gluten-free needs. Located inside Subiaco Primary School, there is plenty of shelter, making this weekly market a fun day out in any season.

Mt Claremont Farmers’ Market

Mt Claremont Farmers’ Market was recognised by the City of Nedlands for “providing fresh local produce and a meeting place for the local community to connect,” and received the Australia Day Active Citizenship Award in 2009. About 50 stalls set up weekly at this market, with stringent rules to ensure high-quality, predominantly grower-direct produce. The upmarket crowd tend to fill out this popular weekly market, so be sure to arrive early if you wish to park in the gold-coin-donation car park.
