Must do for market lovers
The Kalamunda Artisan Markets is held on the first Saturday in each month in the heart of Kalamunda.
The markets sprawl over the main square and central mall in the town centre, winding down pathways and lined along the streets in an organised labyrinth. Stalls are tucked into every available space, selling everything from handcrafted jewellery to natural skincare products and more.
The Kalamunda Artisan Market is run by the Rotary Club of Kalamunda. It has taken on new life recently with a motivated new manager and moved into the digital age with a great website and growing digital presence. The money made by the Rotary goes towards raising funds for local and international charitable projects.

Each stallholder is a genuine maker and grower who must have made, grown or added substantial value to their product to be accepted into the market. They're chosen because they have something unique and interesting for visitors, you won't find much duplication at all.
With over 200 stalls of homemade clothing and accessories, contemporary home décor, art, ceramics, prints and sculptures, spices, chutneys, cereals, oils and fresh and local produce, if you don't find something you love at the Kalamunda Artisan Market, you just haven't looked hard enough.
Round out your day by stopping by one of the local cafes, like the Kalamunda Hotel or Mason and Bird, or wander a bit further and explore the entrance to the Bibbulmun track to round out your day.
