Handmade crafters market returns to Heathcote

Perth Makers Market will transform the City of Melville Heathcote Cultural Precinct into a lively community marketplace this spring on Sunday 7 August, 2 October and 4 December.

The Perth Makers Market promotes shopping locally and sustainably by catering exclusively to stallholders that make handmade, home grown products.

City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said the City was delighted to partner with the Perth Makers Market which provides artists and crafters with a friendly, supportive environment to showcase their work and break into the market scene.

“The Perth Makers Market provides a great day out with the family. While mum and dad browse the stalls filled with handicrafts, food and clothing, the kids can play in the playground,” Mayor Aubrey said.

“It is a wonderful feeling purchasing products that are produced or sourced locally and we can all help support our local artists, crafters and foodie businesses and encourage creativity, vibrancy and community connectedness.”

“If you have not yet experienced these delightful markets, I encourage you to come along to the Heathcote Cultural Precinct and check them out!”

The Perth Makers Market is held at the Heathcote Cultural Precinct, 58 Duncraig Road, Applecross and runs from 9.30am to 3.30pm. Cycling or walking to the market is highly encouraged, alternatively parking is available next to the South of Perth Yacht Club.
