Fine food, booze and buskers at markets
There's nothing like a busker to add a bit of atmosphere to a food market. And the Inglewood Monday Night Markets feature some of Perth's best. Five of them will be performing on Monday, November 23.
Chris Hall will be performing at eh bar area on Ninth Avenue.
You can settle in at the bar area on Ninth Avenue on the north side of Beaufort Street to enjoy the music of Chris Hall. Or find a spot at the Tenth Avenue Inglenook to hear 16-year-old Wheatbelt singer/songwriter Gracie B.

Gracie is also a WAM Song of the Year 2020 nominee, and one of 10 Wheatbelt artists selected to be part of WAM's Demos of the Wheatbelt in 2019. On Ninth Avenue on the other side of Beaufort Street from Chris Hall, Peppermint Jazz will be delivering their own style of jazz.
Peppermint Jazz is Ray Andrew on saxophone and trombone and Peter Barsden on trombone.
The two long-time musicians play a wide range of jazz and have been performing together for five years. Tory Kendrick will be singing the crowd favourites that have made her a hit at retirement homes and a host of charity events on the grey paved area next to Kingsize Big & Tall. She'll be singing songs that most people will know that have recently been on the music charts.
Tory is studying her advanced diploma of performing arts majoring in musical theatre and is scheduled to graduate later this year.
Alongside her professional engagements including children's entertainment with Glass Slipper Entertainment, We Will Rock You at Crown Perth she has performed at multiple Fringeworld Perth engagements including burlesque, vocal and dance performances.
Perth singer/songwriter and guitarist Romy, performing at the Town Square, started out busking at Fairbridge Festival at the age of seven. In 2018, Romy was a winner of the Fairbridge Quest Songwriting Competition when she was 14 years old. Then she scored a songwriting workshop with John Butler and Mama Kin.

Music is her passion, and she is now successfully studying the Music Artist course at WAAPA. The buskers aren't paid by the markets, so visitors are encouraged to drop a coin or two in the buskers' collection box. There's plenty of seating where people can sit and grab a meal from one of the near 40 food vendors showcasing food styles from all over the world.
The markets which run down both sides of Beaufort Street in Inglewood between Eighth Avenue and Tenth Avenue are open from 6pm to 9pm every Monday through to March 29 next year.
Ninth Avenue on both sides of Beaufort Street will be closed off to create space for seating and vendors. Thousands of people flock to the markets each week to enjoy a no cook Monday, walk the dog and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of the markets. To find out more go to www.facebook.com/Inglewoodonbeaufort/
